2015 Cool Thursdays Series: Asleep at the Wheel
The musicianship of Asleep at the Wheel has become the stuff of legends. 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, Van Morrison, Lyle Lovett, Ryan Adams and many more.
Guests are encouraged to participate in the evening's costume contest, dressing in the their best "Big Tex" costume in honor of the Texas legends. The winner will receive a date night on Greenville Avenue in Dallas, with gift certificates to HG Supply Co. and Dude, Sweet Chocolate.
