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.

Travers Bothership & Los Elk
Songwriters. Singers. Multi-instrumentalists. Brothers. At only 26, twins Eric Travers and Kyle Travers have been writing songs and stunning live audiences for well over half their lifetime. Presenting soulful, bluesy, rock n’ roll spun in psychedelic jam, Travers Brothership; also including singer/bassist/songwriter, Josh Clark, and keyboardist/songwriter/percussionist, Ian McIsaac, create a fierce and balanced team, strengthened by the 13 years they’ve spent together on and off the road.
Since their 2015 arrival in Boston, Los Elk has quickly evolved into one of the city’s premier Indie Rock bands, making waves as the newest must see act.
Uniquely mixing Indie Rock with flares of funk, pop, and Rn’B, Los Elk’s razor sharp sound and high energy performances drew attention, and it wasn’t long before they were playing sold out bills throughout the region. The band’s fresh approach to songwriting, which brings musical edge to creative pop numbers, has even landed them in Spotify’s U.S Viral 50 chart and accrued over 1,000,000 streams. From sold out tour dates and festival appearances, to backyard acoustic gigs in the heart of Boston, Los Elk is a dynamic four piece that can be found tearing it up with their motley crew of die hard fans and friends.

Easy Honey & Fletcher's Grove
Forged on a Tennessee mountaintop, Easy Honey began molding their irresistible sound and raucous live performance in 2015. With sounds reminiscent of early Brit-Rock with a nod to 90’s alt-rock, Easy Honey captures both the playfulness and maturity that accompanies one’s coming of age. Easy Honey’s throwback sense of touch, taste, and tone washes over the listener like quicksilver but seizes the audience’s ear like quicksand. After recording in Franklin, TN, the band released the self-titled Easy Honey album in May, 2018. During the album’s promotion, the band moved to Charleston, South Carolina. The group consists of dual frontmen Selby Austin (Vocals & Guitar) and Darby McGlone (Vocals & Guitar), Charlie Holt (Vocals & Drums) and Daniel Comen (Bass Guitar).
Easy Honey has headlined venues in Charleston SC, Savannah GA, and Jackson Mississippi, while also supporting large name groups like Cowboy Mouth, Metro Station, and Everyone Orchestra.
Easy Honey is currently planning their second full length album release for the Fall of 2019.
Fletcher's Grove is in their 11th year of making/playing music with 3 original members still active. Their music ranges from roots of danceable face melting Funk/Jam to a more lyrically driven Americana/Bluegrass/Alt-Country sound the band has grown into as they've matured musically. Covers range from The Band to Nelly to White Zombie to Grateful Dead, but the tempo of the night is full of high octane dance tunes on an average.
Since their inception in 2009 the band has recorded a live album and 5 studio albums, including a new acoustic released in April of 2019. Fletcher's Grove has toured extensively up and down the East coast, has made major ground in the Midwest, and has made it as far West as Colorado. The band has averaged over 100 shows in most of their years touring. The band has been featured on All Good, Summer Camp, The Werk Out, Domefest, Hookahville, Mountain Music Fest, Deep Roots Mountain Revival, Snuggleween, and hundreds more.
Fletcher's Grove hosts their own annual festival Groovin with the Grove, which is held at King Knob in Philippi, WV every September. The festival in its 2nd year had over 750 attendees. The event was headlined by 2 nights of Fletcher's Grove plus Andy Frasco & the UN, Larry Keel Experience, Mike Dillon Band, That 1 Guy, Jon Stickley Trio, Pappy & JP of Cabinet, and dozens of West Virginia artists.
