$15.00 General Admission Advance / $20.00 General Admission Day of Show

Our favorite songs are like one-night stands: passionate or sad, capable of recalling moments with Proustian power. Our favorite artists are lifelong companions: fixtures we turn to for comfort and highs. 

Over the last two decades, Jason Boland and the Stragglers have delivered and become both.

“We’ve always just wanted to entertain ourselves and put out music that would be a part of people’s lives, not just something passing to them,” says Boland. “We want to be something more monolithic.” He pauses and grins as he adds, “We’re just a social experiment at this point.” 

Boland is talking about the deep body of work he’s created with his band of jangly honky-tonk aces, the Stragglers––Grant Tracy on bass; drummer and background vocalist Brad Rice; Nick Worley on fiddle, mandolin, and harmonies; and Cody Angel on guitar and pedal steel. Fronted and co-founded by Boland with Tracy and Rice, the band has featured only a handful of other members over the last 20 years, all of whom––whether they’re currently Stragglers or not––are like brothers. As they’ve independently sold more than half a million albums, the outfit has packed iconic dancehalls, theaters, and other big rooms across the country.

  • Jason Boland & the Stragglers

    Country

    ason Boland & The Stragglers formed in Stillwater, OK in 1998, where they began to make a name for themselves. The group became part of the Texas/Red Dirt scene, where their live shows had been selling out as their following grew larger and larger. They released five studio and two live albums and the momentum continued to build, selling over 500,000 albums total, independently. Their 2008 release, Comal County Blue was one of 2008’s most successful independent country releases, debuting at #2 on the Billboard National Heatseekers chart, #30 Billboard Country Albums, #1 iTunes country albums, as well as their first debut on the Billboard Top 200. 

    Unfortunately, the last decade of Boland’s life plays like a tragic country song. Between a near-fatal car accident, a polyp on his vocal chords, a divorce and a bout with alcoholism, the group’s momentum had consistently been detoured. However, destiny works in strange ways. Boland looks at everything before 2011 as the first half of his career. If he had not gone to hell and back, he would not have had the perspective to make his finest album yet, Rancho Alto. 

    Jason Boland & The Stragglers are Boland (vocals/guitar), Roger Ray (steel/lead guitar & dobro), Jeremy Watkins (fiddle), Grant Tracy (bass) and Brad Rice (drums). Rancho Alto was produced by Lloyd Maines (Dixie Chicks, Flatlanders, Robert Earl Keen) and features 11 new songs, 8 written or co-written by Boland. Boland’s classic, rich baritone blends perfectly with his songs, creating a familiar, traditional, yet modern style. Tracks such as the beautiful “Every Moment I’m Gone”, the pedal steel-laced “False Accuser’s Lament” and the reminiscent “Mary Ellen’s Greenhouse” are reminders of why great country music has no boundaries when the songs and performances are genuine and sincere.
