Starting in the early 1930’s there come about a brand new style of music that was a hybrid of Jazz, Blues and Old Time String Band (or Hillbilly). Instead of big horn sections and drums they used guitars, Fiddles and steel guitar. (the horns and drums came later). Some called it Western Swing, Texas Swing, Hillbilly Jazz, etc. Some just called it Hot Music.
Bands like Milton Brown’s Musical Brownies, Jimmie Revard’s Oklahoma Playboys, Shelley Lee Alley and His Alley Cats, Roy Newman And His Boys, Cliff Bruner and His Texas Wanderers and, of course, Bob Wills And His Texas Playboys.
Wilson’s Hot String Band is a brand new band that plays this very style of hot music. Eveything from Monroe to Django.
