An Evening With The Hot Texas Swing Band

Doors Open 7:00 p.m. Concert 8:00 p.m.
General Admission $25.00  
WMA, SCVHS, FOHP Members $20.00

Click 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.  -----

An Evening with John Zipperer

Doors Open 7:00 p.m. Concert 8:00 p.m.
General Admission $25.00  
WMA, SCVHS, FOHP Members $20.00

A former TV actor and stuntman, JOHN ZIPPERER'S second chance came rolling down the highway of life, not on a carefully controlled movie or commercial set, but while changing a tire for a friend along the 285 freeway in Atlanta, GA. John was hit by a 10-wheel oil truck. After flying 40 feet and landing in the hospital, John was told by the critical care doctor, "You should be dead!" To John this seemed like a clear sign that life is, or could be, too short. He packed everything he owned into his 1976 Camaro and headed out to Los Angeles to pursue a life in music. It was ZipTime!

John's clear voice, infectious melodies and heartfelt lyrics reach fans in places that they didn't know existed. Soon everyone is singing along, swaying, chair dancing, head bobbing, and clapping. Fans remark repeatedly about the joy that is evident when the band is on stage - joy in their playing, joy for their audience, joy from their audience. John Zipperer delivers a unique and refreshing blend of rock, folk, country, and blues.

A lifetime of writing and playing stringed instruments places her work above the ordinary. Clear vocals, a compelling stage presence and accomplished musicianship guarantee Almeda to be an audience favorite.

"Almeda Bradshaw’s focus and passion show through in all of her projects.  Add in her songwriting, vocal, and musical talents, and her albums stand far above the ordinary. Her latest effort, “Lovers, Wives & Mothers:  A Western Woman’s Voice” takes a deep look into Western life, and it shines.  Painstaking  production care is evident throughout.  Love, hurt, history, and truth are represented in this fine collection, which, she writes, “... is dedicated to victims of sex trafficking." Margo Metegrano, BAR D RANCH, www.cowboypoetry.com, December, 2015.

An Evening With Dennis Jay

TEXAS PERFORMER DENNIS JAY MAKES HIS FIRST APPEARANCE IN OLD TOWN NEWHALL

OutWest has repeatedly introduced top musical talent to the Santa Clarita Valley. Expect nothing less from this month's performer, DENNIS JAY. You are guaranteed an engaging evening of original music delivered by the pure and unique voice of Texan Dennis Jay.

Dennis Jay is a singer, songwriter, guitarist who writes and performs original songs with roots in traditional country, Western, folk, blues, cowboy songs and Mexican ballads. He has spent years living, working, and traveling in the American West; from Arizona to Oregon, California to Kansas, Montana to New Mexico, North Dakota to Texas. He performs solo as well as with his fine backup band, Lonesome Town.

It has been said of his performance style "Dennis Jay reflects Gillian Welch's talent for channeling antique voices from the lost history of American music. Jay, though, has picked that signal just post-Appalachia, somewhere in the bandwidth between Jimmie Rogers and Tex Ritter." We've had the pleasure of seeing and hearing him first hand and knew you would enjoy him too. Bring a friend and be prepared for another memorable evening of live music.

Kerry Grombacher “…is one of the West’s new breed, who builds on, embellishes, expands, and updates traditional Western themes.”
