Wine 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, Jadie Rayfield, 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.
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. 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. ~Aer Stephen, WTJU, Folk and Beyond
