SCVTV Presents The OutWest Concert Series Hot Texas Swing BandClick here to enjoy a live radio interview with band leader and founder, Alex Dormont, on Campfire Cafe. 


With one boot in Cowboy music and the other in Swing, the HOT TEXAS SWING BAND is continuing the trail previously led by artists such as Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. Backed by a passion for traditional Western Swing, the Hot Texas Swing Band pushes the genre forward with fresh Rockabilly and Latin beats against original material for a new sound and high-energy live shows that have critics and fans raving.

About their new CD, "Ain't Dead Yet"
From the first track’s opening notes, I was aware of a different sound coming from this tight swing assemblage. …. Frequently when trumpet and saxophone elements are used in Western Swing, they don’t go for the big brass blare utilized by the 40s Big Bands….Here the Hot Texas Swing Band flouts it proudly and successfully.  They are also not afraid to stretch, as they do in bandleader Alex Dormont’s track called “Castle Walls.”  ….Some picks include the title track, “Back in My  Texas Home,” “Along the Navajo Trail,” “Bang, Bang,” and “You Don’t Know Me” but it’s all good, as the saying goes.  -----
