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

Wayne "The Train" Hancock

Wayne has been called "The King of Juke Joint swing," a "Roots Renaissance Man," a "Country Singer's Country Singer" and "Hank Williams meets Gershwin." But the... phrase most frequently echoed throughout his career is "Wayne Hancock is the real deal." Joe Ely said it, Hank Williams III said it, Bobby Koefer from the Texas Playboys said it, as have countless music fans and writers when referring to Hancock's authentic and original blend of honky tonk, western swing, blues and big band that he calls "juke joint swing!"
