Hill Country Live presents music in our clubs downstairs in New York City & Washington, D.C. Since our beginnings, we have transformed our music program, from a fun dinner enhancement to a vital music experience. We book bands that live comfortably under the Americana banner with a nod to our spiritual home in Austin, and so have been graced by the likes of Billy Joe Shaver, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Bob Schneider, Hayes Carll, Puss 'n Boots (feat: Norah Jones), The Bottle Rockets, Marah, Chris Knight, Jim White, Big Sandy and Kelly Willis + Bruce Robison, to name a few. But we are also quite happy to present everything from the legendary underground rockabilly revivalist, Robert Gordon to a Bee Gees Metal Tribute (what's more American than that?) to the Motor City Garage Soul of the Detroit Cobras.
Hill Country Live presents over 500 shows a year between our NYC and Washington, D.C. locations. To be considered please send us links to your website, live performance video, show/attendance history and a brief description. While we review every artist, we can’t always respond to everyone. Thanks for sharing your music! Submit your music inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are no heroes, people. We're a party band... America's Party Band. We play music, that with a little help of the good stuff, people love to dance to. If you need brain surgery, go to a brain surgeon. If you need to let loose and have a good time, come to us.

Kelly Willis & Bruce Robinson Honky Tonk Tour
With rockabilly roots and a heartache-meets-honky-tonk voice, Kelly Willis has been labeled a country ingénue. As a new traditionalist singer/songwriter, her tunes effortlessly combine the storytelling and strings aspects of country music and the driving force of rock.
