Forget the big bank bailouts, the economic stiumulus package woes and your 401(k) balance. It's time for a little joy - Willie and the Wheel style.
Their new CD is perfect medicine for a country with the blues. The 12 tunes are full of happy blues, jazzy solos and an extra helping of Dixieland.
I had a chance to visit with the normally taciturn steel guitar player Eddie Rivers, who joined The Wheel five years ago, about the CD, the group's tour with Willie and his love of Western Swing music. Check out my conversation with Rivers and a complete review of the CD in an upcoming edition of the News-Telegram.
Just a note: The Wheel's production of "A Ride with Bob" at the Eisemann Center set for Saturday, Feb. 28 is SOLD OUT. That's the coolest news. I've seen the play twice and it really is a slice of Americana. Congratulations on the SRO, guys (and Elizabeth).
