We are so lucky to have Georgi Petrov here in Salt Lake City! He came to us in the depths of the pandemic, but despite the general lockdown, his incredible playing and enthusiasm for community and the guitar have made him a top call around town. His

playing transcends genre and reflects a host of influences.

Georgi was born in 1987 in Yambol, Bulgaria and started playing guitar after watching Steve Morse perform live in Bulgaria with Deep Purple. His first 12 years on the instrument were strongly informed by a rigorous classical training with the culmination of a BA in Music and Economics and a MA in Jazz Performance from Lawrence

University and University of New Orleans.

Georgi is an incredibly generous musician and a great presence to have in Utah. Follow him on social media and look for him on the next gig!

Exciting update! We have received our vinyl of Patron Saint Django and have both the vinyl and CDs available for sale on our website. If you're interested in picking up a copy, we are going to start shipping out orders this week. Follow the link to our store to snag your own copy today!

Thank you for hanging out with Hot House West! We are an organization devoted to growing and supporting Utah’s swing and acoustic roots music community. We believe that acoustic music—from swing and jazz to bluegrass, old-time, country and western—

brings people together and creates opportunities for connectedness, learning, and joy.

Our goal is to provide and promote weekly and monthly events, from dances, to jams, concerts, and workshops, that support and build our acoustic community. If you’ve ever wanted to dust off the ol’ guitar, meet new players, find a dance partner, or even just find more live acoustic music, follow us, spread the word, and join our Hot House West community! We hope to see you soon!
