Shoot Low Sheriff is an authentic Western Swing band based in Dallas, Texas. Inspired by the classic Western Swing bands, our music combines strings, horns and piano to recapture the sounds that swept Southern dancehalls in the 1930s and 40s. If you grew up in the Southwest, the sounds of Bob Wills, Spade Cooley, the Light Crust Doughboys and Milton Brown are in your DNA, whether you’ve consciously listened to the music or not. Equal parts urban and rural, sophisticated and rustic, our music is hard to categorize. Audiences young and old find themselves smiling and singing along to classic songs from the Western Swing songbook like “Take Me Back to Tulsa”, “San Antonio Rose” and “Beaumont Rag” along with hot jazz classics like “Minnie the Moocher” and “After You’ve Gone.” Shoot Low Sheriff also boasts a collection of original tunes destined to be future classics.
