Charleston to Austin

20141207_140936Wine Under the Oaks (Sunday Dec 7) was a phenomenal success at Boone Hall Plantation!  The day was a highlight, from the record-breaking crowd (and the flawless sound mix from S&D Sound), to hanging out at owner Willy McRae’s home afterward.  Director of Operations for BHP told me this morning that Charleston is talking about Dallas Wesley!  Can’t wait to get back and play again.

Now in Austin, TX for the International Music and Film Conference (IMFCON), which ends today (Dec 9).  Headed to the last panel later today.  Thanks to publicist extraordinaire Jennifer Blum of the JB Group for the invite and introductions.

 

About

Dallas Wesley has opened for a wide range of artists including Travis Tritt, Trace Adkins, Darius Rucker and Blues Traveler.  His music is a blend of roots country and Americana folk.  He’s part Dylan, part Bruno Mars.  He’s part poet, part activist–all singer.  Dallas is passionate and real on stage and his original songs are from the heart.

 

“The first time I saw Dallas Wesley was in January of 2010 at an audition for the Live Arts production, “Hank Williams: Lost Highway”.  Dallas had never acted in a theatrical production before, but he had a presence that was magnetic.  As he started to sing, the room was transformed, and everybody there that cold, icy night felt the warmth, and knew the play had found its Hank.  Watching Dallas take on the enormous challenge of learning all the songs plus all the lines it took to be carry the lead role in this musical biography was truly inspiring.  The play was a massive success, and the somewhat unlikely combination of musicians that formed the Drifting Cowboys had a special chemistry that created joy in all who became their audiences.  At the age of 29, Dallas became Hank Williams at the very same age Hank spent his last year of his too short life. But make no mistake, Dallas Wesley is his own man.  That was a play, and this is real life, and the songs that come from his heart are the ticket that will let his dream unfold.  If you press them, you can probably get a reprise now and then, just because they are that kind of friendly folk.  But this is the Dallas Wesley Band.  You’d be much more rewarded to sit back and listen up to what they have to say as themselves.” ~Aer Stephen, WTJU, Folk and Beyond
