    About

    Imagine hearing all of your favorite Texas hot jazz, blues, old time, mariachi, and Western swing acts all in one place! Now imagine that place hosted Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Jimmie Lunceford, Andy Kirk, Lionel Hampton, Ella Fitzgerald backed by the Dizzy Gillespie Orchestra, and Fletcher Henderson to name a few! No, you ain’t dreaming! We are thrilled to announce the lineup of the first “Hot Town: Hot Music Showcase” held on May 25th from noon to 9pm right here at East Austin’s own historic Doris Miller Auditorium.

    Hosted by Austin's own Joymakers, this amazing lineup includes The Relevators, Hot Club of Cowtown, Floyd Domino, The Shinbone Alley String Band, Mariachi Amor, Aunt Ruby's Sweet Jazz Babies, Sophia Johnson and Kym Warner, and even our special guest, The Hot Club of New York’s own Matthew “Fat Cat” Rivera all the way from the Big Apple spinning some original Texas jazz 78s. It’s going to be an amazing event and a real homecoming for the local music community! Y’all don’t wanna miss it!
