In the words of Billboard, "Everything this act has ever released is simply spectacular." In Texas they say Bob Wills is still the king. But Asleep at the Wheel is the official heir apparent, a perennial Ark favorite well into a fourth decade of fabulous Western swing dance rhythms and artful country songwriting. More than 80 members have passed through Asleep at the Wheel since the band's beginnings, but founder and frontman Ray Benson's vision of an ongoing and constantly growing tribute to the giants of Western swing, with generous helpings of country and jump blues, has stayed fresh. Asleep at the Wheel has won nine Grammy awards and counting, and they deliver a high-energy show every time they come to The Ark.
