“The most entertaining night in Texas” – Liz Smith, New York Post

 

Nine-time Grammy®-award winners Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel are proud to announce A Ride with Bob, the first-ever musical drama about the legendary Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, will be coming to Washington, DC, this September.

 

In 1973 after the release of the band’s first album (which paid tribute to the music of Bob Wills), Benson was invited by his idol to Dallas for a meeting. Upon his arrival, he learned Wills was not feeling well and the meeting was postponed for the next morning. That same night Wills had a stroke and went into a life-ending coma. In A Ride with Bob, he finally gets to have his conversation with the Spirit of Bob, who visits him on the Asleep at the Wheel bus late one night. The fascinating and sometimes outrageous stories of Wills’ career, his contribution to American music, and his raucous personal life unfold. The two-act drama includes performances of Wills’ most famous songs, including “San Antonio Rose,” “Faded Love,” “Cherokee Maiden,” “Take Me Back to Tulsa,” and many more.
