Asleep at the Wheel

In our part of the world, live music opportunities come in fits and spurts. So, last night we were headed out again for the second time in less than a week. The venue was the Knickerbocker Cafe in Westerly, and literally required only a short 10-minute drive to get there.

The band we went to see were the internationally recognized group "Asleep at the Wheel", who play classic Western-swing and a little rockabilly. Their set included covers of many Bob Wills songs and even a version of "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens" (see video link below). It was a great evening and fantastic to see such musical talent at close quarters. Next time we need to practice our dance steps in advance and remember to wear our cowboy boots!
