Asleep At The Wheel
Ray Benson founded Asleep at the Wheel in Paw Paw, West Virginia 46 years ago. Now based in Austin, the band holds 10 Grammy awards, 20 studio albums and 20 singles on the Billboard country charts. The Grammy Award-winning Still The King:Celebrating the Music of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys is the band’s most recent release (2015) and marks their third full-length Bob Wills tribute album. Featuring 22 acclaimed collaborations, the all-star line up includes legends such as Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and George Strait and newcomers like The Avett Brothers, Amos Lee, Old Crow Medicine Show and many other fine talents.

Asleep at the Wheel is bringing a fresh look and sound into 2016. Now traveling as an 8-piece band, recent additions Katie Shore (fiddle, vocals), Dennis Ludiker (fiddle, mandolin) and Connor Forsyth (keyboard, vocals) have instilled a new-found energy and their own unique style within the band. Between those Texas Twin Fiddles and Boogie Piano, you can bet you’ll be dancin’ down the aisles and swingin’ all night long when the Wheel rolls into town!
Gypsy Jazz Social Club - (Set time: 6:15 PM)
Gypsy Jazz Social Club
Mysterious... yet strangely familiar, the Gypsy Jazz Social Club musical journey embraces the acoustic swing sound pioneered in the 1930s and 1940s by Django Reinhardt and others and is today enjoying a resurgence in popularity among musicians and jazz aficionados alike.

Gypsy Jazz Social Club is a consortium of versatile musicians scattered throughout western Colorado commonly inspired by the style of acoustic string-band jazz known as "Le jazz hot". GJSC showcases material dating from the early 1900s to present day, sourcing traditional and modern repertoire, all "gypsified" for your listening and/or dancing enjoyment. The GJSC performance includes vocalized and instrumental arrangements of jazz and swing standards, latin rhythms, and original material, as well as contemporary and traditional gypsy tunes.

Configuration of the band and instrumentation is tailored to each venue and occasion, easily adaptable in a range from duo to quintet or more, and may employ combinations of guitar, violin, mandolin, upright bass, percussion, wind, and other instruments.
