Hailing from Utah, The Piano Guys are four dads who became an Internet sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos. They’ve made over 50 since early 2011, including their hit video, an innovative multi-handed version of One Direction’s What Makes You Beautiful and a gorgeous reinvention of the hit song Let It Go from Disney’s Frozen. It’s the Guys’ highly original blend of classical music with pop that has really been the cause of an Internet phenomenon and has led to over 500 million YouTube views. It is their endearing personalities along with their obvious will to inspire young and old, which keeps the fans coming back for more.

Join KCPT for a night with Asleep at the Wheel and Hot Club of Cowtown live at JCCC’s Carlsen Center!

Both musical groups will highlight JCCC Performing Arts Series’ 2017 Kansas Cowboy Jubilee on Saturday, September 30th with their unique showcases of the sound of Western swing.

In reviving the freewheeling, eclectic sensibility of Western swing godfather Bob Wills, Asleep at the Wheel have earned enthusiastic critical praise; they have only preserved classic sounds that had all but disappeared from country music.

Since its beginnings in the late 1990s, the Hot Club of Cowtown’s star has continued to rise as its reputation for jaw-dropping virtuosity and unforgettable live shows has become the band’s global brand. Inspired by the sound and style of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, Hot Club of Cowtown’s live repertoire has expanded to include a substantial amount of original material and cover songs from artists like Tom Waits.
