GALVESTON ISLAND, TEXAS. The Grand 1894 Opera House kicks off the holiday season Saturday, November 24 at 8pm, with Merry Texas Christmas Y’all! from Asleep at the Wheel. Tickets may be purchased at The Grand’s Box Office, 2020 Postoffice Street, by calling 409.765.1894, 800.821.1894, or online at www.thegrand.com.
Created by Ray Benson almost 50 years ago, the band is now based in Austin, Texas and boasts 10 Grammy awards, 20 studio albums and 20 singles on the Billboard country charts. One of their most popular albums is Still the King: Celebrating the Music of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys – their third full-length Bob Wills tribute album. Today, traveling as an 8-piece band, Asleep at the Wheel has a newfound energy and their own Texas style. No doubt – between those Texas Twin Fiddles and Boogie Piano – you’ll be dancin’ down the aisles and swingin’ all night long when the Wheel rolls into town! This performance is sponsored in part by Frost Banking, Investments, Insurance; The Tremont House – A Wyndham Historic Hotel, and is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts and Texas Commission on the Arts.
