San Angelo has not hosted Asleep at the Wheel in many years. West Texas Boys Ranch is excited to showcase them at this annual event.
Ray Benson founded Asleep at the Wheel in Paw Paw, West Virginia 47 years ago. Now based in Austin, the band has earned 10 Grammy awards, recorded 20 studio albums, and charted 20 singles on the Billboard country charts. The Grammy Award-winning Still The King: Celebrating the Music of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys is the band's most recent release (2015) and marks their third full-length Bob Wills tribute album. Featuring 22 acclaimed collaborations, the all-star lineup includes legends such as Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and George Strait and newcomers like The Avett Brothers, Amos Lee, Old Crow Medicine Show and others.
Asleep at the Wheel is bringing a fresh look and sound into 2017. Now traveling as an eight-piece band, recent additions Katie Shore (fiddle, vocals), Dennis Ludiker (fiddle, mandolin) Connor Forsyth (keyboard, vocals) and Josh Hoag (Bass) have instilled new energy and their own unique style within the band. Between those Texas Twin Fiddles and Boogie Piano, you can bet you'll be dancin' down the aisles and swingin' all night long when the Wheel rolls into town, they promise.
the Boys Ranch is proud to be 70 years strong and cordially invite you to join them for the 2018 West Texas Boys Ranch Ball. Tickets go on sale November 1 at 8 a.m. at https://www.stubwire.com. Sponsorship opportunities are available and greatly appreciated.
