Legendary Texas Western Swing band Asleep At The Wheel is asking their fans to help fund the making of a documentary that chronicles the group’s 40-year history! This documentary is designed to precede an Asleep at the Wheel concert performance, giving longtime and new fans a thrilling ride through the 4-decade history of the band. Video of rare performances, photos and present day interviews all paint the picture…from the early days of formation in Paw Paw, West Virginia to the first gigs and big breaks in San Francisco, settling permanently in Austin, and then on to each of the improbable come-backs that have breathed new life into the band just when things seemed darkest. Through the film it becomes clear that the band has thrived because of an intense love of this music that is shared by the talented musicians who make it and the audience that cannot get enough of it. That, and the force of nature that is Ray Benson.Click on the image to see the “making of the documentary” video.
