Asleep at the Wheel in Concert
Nov 16, 2018
423 N Main St
Shine up your boots and unpack that Manuel suit, you're going to dance the night away when Asleep At The Wheel brings their signature Texas swing to Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa. For over 40 years, this Austin-based band has been thrilling audiences with their neo-traditional country and Western swing stylings. From their first gig opening for Alice Cooper and Hot Tuna in 1970 to recognition in Rolling Stone magazine by Van Morrrison and even helping launch Austin City Limits, this hard touring big band has remained true to its original mission: carrying the torch of Western swing, or what band leader Ray Benson refers to as "jazz with a cowboy hat."
Along the way, Asleep at the Wheel has earned ten Grammy Awards, released more than 25 studio albums and performed with a veritable who's who of Roots music, including the likes of Bob Dylan, Lyle Lovett, George Strait and Ryan Adams. Currently touring as an 8-piece, good luck staying in your seat once the Texas Twin Fiddles and Boogie Piano get the joint to swinging. Once the house gets jumping, who knows, if you squint just right, you might even catch a glimpse of the King of Texas Swing, himself, ol' Bob Wills.
