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 newfound 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!

Considered Austin, Texas’ official musical spokesman, Dale Watson has built a worldwide legion of fans one gig at a time, from Texas honky-tonks to Tokyo performance halls and all points in between. With his new album, Live At The Big T Roadhouse, Chicken S#!+ Bingo Sunday, Watson brings a unique Texas tradition to the world. Live At The Big T is a perfect snapshot of Watson and his ace band, His Lonestars, live in concert at the peak of their performing prowess, all while hosting a Chicken S#!+ Bingo show at Dale’s own bar, the Big T Roadhouse in St. Hedwig, Texas. The ‘bingo” game involves a caged hen strutting across a plywood board divided into numbered squares while betting customers gather ’round the cage, hoping the bird will drop its mark on their chosen numeral. Along with cash prizes for the winners, there’s $2 Lonestar beer, all you can eat hot dogs and live music and dancing. If you’ve never seen Watson live, this album is the next best thing — an intimate show for an audience of mixed ages and backgrounds, all enjoying an afternoon of live honky tonk and classic country music framed by Watson’s hilarious between-song banter.
