Still The Kings
A Country Music institution, Asleep at the Wheel have been honing their bouncy brand of Western swing revivalism for over four decades, blending jazz and country to infectious effect. Among their best known tracks 'The Letter That Johnny Walker Read', 'Choo Choo Ch'Boogie' and 'Route 66'. Their latest record was Still the King, on which they led a cavalcade of musical talent such as Merle Haggard and Lyle Lovett in paying tribute to Bob Willis & His Texas Playboys, an artist they consider their biggest influence.
Though the group has undergone countless line-up changes over the years, founder Ray Benson has remained the group's linchpin, and is still leading them to this day. Catch Ray and Co. when Asleep at the Wheel boogie their way into Fox Theater in Redwood City, CA, Closed May 20, 2018
