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 booker@hillcountrywdc.com

Possessed By Paul James

Fans of singer/songwriter and one man band Possessed By Paul James my be surprised to find out that playing music is not his only passion. Though he somehow finds the time to make appearances all over the US and Europe throughout the year, down in the Texas Hill Country he’s in charge of an elementary school special education classroom, teaching children with intellectual disabilities. And you may think that with juggling so many responsibilities between music and work that he wouldn't have the energy or the time to excel at either one. But Possessed by Paul James is not your average musician, or teacher. - Saving Country Music

Left Lane Cruiser w/ Rodney Henry

NEW ALBUM "SHAKE AND BAKE" OUT NOW!Headed by singer/guitarist Freddy J IV, Left Lane Cruiser is a bona fide blues rock band from the American mid-west. Far from pretending to be rambling hobos for the sake of a manufactured image, Left Lane Cruiserhas been genuinely living the blues for over a decade, bringing its freestyle jams to crowds all over the world.“Shake and Bake”, the band’s new album, was cooked up in a van rolling heavy on the highway, headed by two baked and juiced musicians, veering across the lines, desperately steering towards rest and redemption at the nearest parking lot. It is a record about the juice that keeps the crowd dancing, the smoke that keeps the minds lifted. This is as real it gets.Recorded “old school” analog by Jason Davis in his Fort Wayne’s studio, and with a cover by legendary artist William Stout (Ramones, Fred McDowell, Iggy Pop), “Shake and Bake” has a heavy sound and a big heart. For Left Lane Cruiser the blues is enduring and easy to feel.

Colebrook Road w/ Off the Rails

Bridging the divide between straight-drive, traditional grass played by the Del McCoury Band and the Lonesome River Band and the genre-warping progressive grass done by the Punch Brothers and Front Country, Colebrook Road strives to find a common middle ground, creating new enthusiasts for bluegrass while expanding the definition of the genre for established fans.
