Asleep At The Wheel
Asleep At The Wheel Remove performer from this event
Since the early '70s, Asleep at the Wheel have been the most important force in keeping the sound of Western swing alive. In reviving the freewheeling, eclectic sensibility of Western swing godfather Bob Wills, the Wheel have earned enthusiastic critical praise throughout their lengthy career; they have not only preserved classic sounds that had all but disappeared from country music, but have also been able to update the music, keeping it a living, breathing art form....

Kings Rock!

Great Band and some feel good music. Live performance is awesome.

Apr 07, 2008 - supermatt on Kings of Leon
Huge Fan!

Tried to see them in LA with Bob Dylan but got lost and missed them. I would reccommend them to anyone.

Nov 15, 2007 - zbrock on Electric Six
Amazing Performers

These guys put on an amazing, high energy show. A friend of mine convinced me to see them in concert a few weeks ago. I knew and liked their music but I'm not a big fan of live music in general. I don't like the waiting around, standing for hours on end and the ringing in my ears the next day. But these guys were more than worth it. Their songs are hilarious and catchy and they're a ton of fun to watch perform. You should definitely try to catch them the next time they're in your town.

Fond memories of growing up with The Verve Pipe

I'm still mad though that they slowed The Freshmen after signing with RCA, the original I grew up with was so much better
