Asleep at the Wheel w/ Greg Schochet & Little America
August 13 @ 8:00 pm
Fifty years ago, Asleep at the Wheel’s Ray Benson wrote in his journal that he wanted to form a band to bring the roots of American pop music into the present. It seemed like an ambitious goal for a 19-year-old, yet Benson has done exactly that – traversing the globe as an ambassador of Western swing music and introducing its irresistible sound to generation after generation. Although the lineup has changed countless times since its inception, Benson’s mission has never wavered.
Greg Schochet is an integral part of Colorado’s thriving roots music scene, a sought performer, producer, session player, and instructor. Equally adept on guitar and mandolin, he is fluent in all manner of acoustic and electric styles. His latest band, Greg Schochet & Little America, is a rollicking tour through all things Americana, leaving no musical stone unturned. Along with Greg, you’ll hear some of Colorado’s favorite musicians: Dusty Rider on pedal steel and banjo; Jeremy Mohney on saxophone; Conner Hollingsworth on upright bass; and Damon Smith on drums
Doors 7pm / All Ages
