NOTE: THIS IS AN OUTDOOR "CONCERT IN A CAR" EVENT AT DWYER MEMORIAL PARK IN LITTLE YORK (approx. 10 minutes north of the Center for the Arts in Homer)
Ray Benson founded Asleep at the Wheel in Paw Paw, West Virginia 49 years ago. Now based in Austin, the band holds 10 Grammy awards, 20 studio albums and 20 singles on the Billboard country charts. The Grammy Award-winning Still The King: Celebrating the Music of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys was released in 2015 and marked their third full-length Bob Wills tribute album. Their most recent album “New Routes” is both a new path forward and a nod to the freewheeling roots (get it?) of one of Texas’ most beloved bands, marking 2018 with their first album of new material in a decade. Asleep at the Wheel’s newest members Katie Shore (fiddle, vocals), Dennis Ludiker (fiddle, mandolin), Connor Forsyth (keyboard, vocals) and Josh Hoag (Bass), have given the band a newfound energy and their own unique style, and Asleep at the Wheel veteran David Sanger (Drums) rounds it all out.
Also be sure to stay tuned in 2020 for Asleep at the Wheel’s 50th Anniversary! It’ll be a year filled with even more fresh takes on old tunes, exciting events across the country, and appearances by some of the original band members!

Story of a small town kid:
After graduating in 2012, I worked for my father (Michael Rogalia) in residential construction. Slowly making a name in that industry, I decided it was time to work for myself.
What I didn't know at the time of starting my own construction company, was there was a deep passion lurking in the background... MUSIC!
"I've always played guitar, I've had one since I was a kid. Played it here and there, maybe at a party or two. However, it was nothing serious." It wasn't until early March of 2018, where I had learned I'd be starting a new business, as a singer/songwriter.
"I picked up the guitar one day after work, and never put it down. Its always been sitting in the corner, but one day I decided, hey, I'm gonna write a song on this thing. Since then I caught the songwriting bug, and that's incurable"
Since the start to my music career in 2018, I am set to release my debut album "A Little Too Country" on December 21st 2019.
