Asleep At The Wheel
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.
