The Hot Club of Cowtown & Tyler HiltonThe Ark 316 S. Main, Ann Arbor, MI
Known for its legendary music collection, including the early albums of Elvis Presley, Sun Studio left an indelible mark on the history of rock ‘n’ roll. In 2005, Tyler Hilton was cast to play the legendary rock star in the blockbuster biopic, Walk the Line (starring Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash). Now Tyler has teamed up with America’s premiere hot jazz and Western swing trio, Hot Club of Cowtown, bringing Elvis’ greatest hits from the Sun Studio years to life on the stage. The Hot Club of Cowtown has been an Ark favorite for years, but they’ve continued to break new ground since first visiting Ann Arbor in the 1990s, and this new show is no exception. Both The Hot Club of Cowtown and Tyler Hilton will perform their own material, and then they’ll join forces for the Elvis material—which is very much in the Hot Club’s wheelhouse.
