Asleep at the Wheel: On Screen and On Stage!

Sunday, Sep 8, 2013 7:00p
The Long Center Austin, TX

The public debut in Austin of the documentary film about the 9-time Grammy-award winning Western Swing band Asleep at the Wheel, followed by a full concert, September 8 in Dell Hall.

It’s hard to believe that the Wheel has been making great Western Swing music for over four decades! You’ll travel back in time when their new documentary film “Then and Now” opens the evening with its time-capsule look at the long-haired youth that made up the band in the early ’70s.

It’s startling to reflect on the fact that Austin’s Asleep at the Wheel, the modern standard-bearers of the native branch of country music known as Western swing, has been a going concern longer than the form’s most famous innovators, Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.
