Two-step your way out west at this rare New York City stop on the Texas Dance Hall Tour. Ray Benson, leader of the seminal western swing band Asleep at the Wheel, and veteran singer and guitarist Dale Watson have each played honky tonks and beer joints across the States. Tonight they join forces to create a super duo along the lines of Willie and Merle, The Louvin Brothers, and Buck Owens and Don Rich.
