Asleep at the Wheel
Cowboys, 3910 Palmer Park Blvd.
Saturday, March 9 7:30 p.m.

The tired old tour bus that ferries Asleep at the Wheel from gig to gig has rolled over 3 million miles of roadway, crisscrossing the continent with a band whose revolving members have numbered 80 since 1970. That bus has seen some country.

And heard it, too -- a brand of Western swing that has won eight Grammys and drawn in innumerable A-list collaborators, from the Squirrel Nut Zippers to Garth and Merle. Asleep at the Wheel has become an institution, influencing the country roots revival of the '70s and fueling the swing uprising of the mid-'90s. Quality -- and quantity. Who could ask for more?

The country big band comes to Cowboys Saturday night. Tickets range from $15 to $19. Call 596-1212.
