Dave Stuckey & Hot House Gang

Redwood Coast Music Festival 2020 Performing Artist

"Dave himself (guitar and vocals) has an infectious swing, and the musicians he’s gathered around him are some of the best in the West, or perhaps the known world."  

Michael Steinman - Jazz Lives


2020 Ameripolitan Music Award Winner for Best Western Swing Male, RCMF is thrilled to welcome back our friend, Dave Stuckey! Multi-talented Stuckey is a band leader, producer, singer, songwriter, drummer and swingin' guitarist extraordinaire.


Just look at his activities in less than 15 years: He helped the rebirth of the American hillbilly/rockabilly scene with the Dave & Deke Combo, produced the Best Album for The Hot Club Of Cowtown «Tall Tales» (and co-wrote with them the beautiful «When I Lost You» and «Sleep»), found time to drum with The Untamed Youth, AND released the best western-swing album of the last 50 years -  «Get a Load of This». You can find him leading several of his own bands and drumming with The Lucky Stars.


Dave is bringing two of LA's hottest dance bands to Redwood Coast.  First up:   Dave Stuckey & The Hot House Gang


Dave Stuckey & The Hot House Gang is a hard-swinging, take-no-prisoners aggregation, playing standards and not-so-standards from the 1920's & 30s...and whose main objective is to bring the heat, get you out of your seat, and provoke you to move your feet.


Bringing with him a Murderer’s Row of torrid trad jazz operators from the wilds of Los Angeles, Stuckey’s outfit channels an Eddie Condon small-group drive with jiving vocals that may conjure thoughts of Wingy Manone or Fats Waller. Calling all cats - that stuff is here and it's anything but mellow!
