Asleep at the Wheel

Shows/Performances

Jay Goldberg Events and Entertainment presents an evening with 10-time Grammy award winners Asleep at the Wheel, who will bring their popular holiday themed concert series “Merry Texas Christmas Y’all” to Seminole Casino Hotel Immokalee on Monday December 17 at 8 p.m. Advance tickets are on sale now for $49 and are available by phone at 1-800-514-ETIX or online at www.moreinparadise.com or www.jaytv.com. Attendees must be 21 years of age.

Asleep at the Wheel is releasing their third Texas-centric holiday album this year, while continuing to bring Christmas cheer to theaters with their western swing holiday concert. The band has been touring the country this past year promoting their Grammy-Award-winning Bob Wills tribute album “Still the King.” Expect a wonderful evening that combines Asleep at the Wheel’s most popular songs, new material, and holiday favorites such as “Christmas in Jail” and “Merry Texas Christmas Y’all.”

The musicianship of Asleep at the Wheel is the stuff of legends. Reuters pegged The Wheel as "one of the best live acts in the business." Taking a page from Bob Wills’ book, the band has constantly toured at a national level throughout its history; with anywhere from 7-15 of the finest players Ray Benson could talk into jumping in the bus to play a string of dates. The alumni roster is well over 80 members, and includes an impressive list of musicians who have gone on to perform with artists such as Bob Dylan, George Strait, Van Morrison, Lyle Lovett, Ryan Adams, and many more.

A quick scan of awards, such as "Touring Band of the Year" (CMAs, 1976) and "Lifetime Achievement in Performance" (Americana Music Awards 2009), not to mention near dominance of the Grammy "Country Instrumental" category over the years, reflects the reputation of the band’s musicianship. Ray Benson fell in love with western swing because of its unique combination of elements of American blues, swing and traditional fiddling but also for its demanding musical chops. Western swing is what Benson calls "jazz with a cowboy hat," is a thrill to hear live, and thanks in large part to the Wheel’s 40+ years of promotion, is a living and creative genre of music today.
