Dear Elana and Hot Club.
Just got your e mail yesterday about Eva's passing. So sorry to hear that. I thought the tribute you wrote was beautiful and brought a tear to my eyes. So glad for the pictures also. I met you and Eva at 2016 Elko Cowboy Poetry and talked to you after the show and Eva was right there at our feet as we sat on the edge of the stage and talked. I got a picture of her but the lighting was not very good. Had a very nice conversation with all three of you and you autographed my white bandana.
     Take care on the road, be safe and know Eva is still listening. Thank you so much for all the joy ans happiness you bring to all who are your fans. I played " Eva's Dance" from your Black Beauty album for her and you. Will catch you again somewhere down the trail. Thanks to you, Whit Jake and Eva.

Many thanks to Elana, Whit and Jake for the fantastic final night of the twentieth anniversary UK tour at the Wimborne Tivoli - right in my back yard - wow!
Whether standards or originals the music comes across with uncompromising energy and passion and the audience were rewarded for their appreciation with an unexpected final encore to bring us down to earth after an amazing Orange Blossom Orange Special.
Thanks also for coming to the front after the show, it was a real pleasure for me and my wife Jenny to meet you all and we are looking forward to the next visit to Wimborne!
Best Wishes Tim and Jenny Adams

Howdy,

We brought our grand-daughter to your show in Saugatuck, MI a couple years ago.  (Whit even acknowledged her from the stage 'cause she was really into the music...and probably the youngest one there).  She's now 7....and is asking when she can see the Hot Club again!  She loves your music.  She's also a huge Riders In The Sky fan (They are how we "discovered" you).  But she really, really, really wants to see you guys.  Can you please get booked somewhere near northern Indiana?????

Hello! We had the great pleasure of seeing you (twice) at the Richmond, VA Folk Festival this past weekend. You are all incredible musicians, which would have been enough, however your collective chemistry on stage and the joy you extend to the audience made your shows that much more enjoyable! Thank you so much... we look forward to seeing you again. Take good care ~ Denise (Marshall, VA)

Hey guys! Long time, no see, but still and always a huge fan. Noticed on the Wiki page there is no mention of your first self-release 'Western Clambake'. I still have the tape I bought, maybe in front of Java Joe's, but would love a digi version. Any plan on doing that? I can just copy to disc, but it was such a great collection of your early stuff I think it should be out there. Btw, how many of those tapes did you guys make? Probably gonna be worth a chunk of money someday.. ;-) Okay, I just wrote all this and there it is to the right...shoot. Apparently we agree...

   I can`t tell you how much  enjoy your artistry. Each of you freely display technical ability of the highest caliber. That slap-bass double time thing you do always gives me the chills. WHAT TECHNIQUE! Those guitar phrases you do are nothing short of spectacular. Elana, I heard you play about two bars and I remarked to a friend: That pretty lady is no fiddle player. When you play like that, the term is VIOLINIST! I also enjoy the gentleman who sat in with you in the Texas restaurant. He knows his way around the guitar a tad, also. I`m a one time capable, but retired tenor banjoist whose arthritic fingers no longer allow me to play Monti`s Czardas or Kitten On The Keys. I do enjoy playing along with you guys in my mind however. I used to do most of those standards you do so well. Many thanks for the music!  Bill miller, Saginaw, Michigan. P.S. The only negative aspect of me listening to your wonderful playing is that I can`t figure out how to get the goose bumps off my teeth!

Wow! Just got my western Clambake CD today! LOVE IT! Happy 20 Anniversary too. Besides the songs I love the audio quality. sounds like right out of the late 30's. and that is meant as a sincere compliment. All three of you are just amazing talent on it and looking cool in the album photo and Elana cute as can be even then. just had to say that, and you all just keep getting better.  Your range of so many different types of music just shows your incredible talent and chemistry together.

I got to see you at 2016 Elko Cowboy Poetry Dance Nite and got to talk to Whit, Jake and Elana for a good while after the show even tho it was after midnight. You were all so very nice and friendly and thanks Elana for your autograph on my white bandana. I have all your albums except maybe one early one. Also have Black Beauty and Elana James albums. You guys and Eva too take care, be safe on the road and keep those fiddle, guitar and bass strings on fire. will see you again somewhere down the trail.

On Sept 15 I celebrate my 73rd birthday. I became a fan of Hot Club when you were at the Country Music Hall of Fame here in Nashville. And that was about 20 years ago. I will be in Mason, TX for your concert at the Odeon Theater on Sept 16. This is my birthday present to myself! Happy Anniversary! See you in Mason!

The Western Swing Power Trio.  I can't wait to see them again.  Three greats working together.  Just watch how they interact with one another.  Thanks Jake, Elena, Whit.  Your show at The Iron Horse was fantastic.  WOW!
