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

For the past 20 years, Jason Boland & the Stragglers have dazzled audiences all over as one of the best ambassadors of the Red Dirt and Texas country movement. Millions of fans cheering him on, over 500,000 records sold independently and 10 albums later, Boland is a career musician whose legacy continues to grow by the day. Add to that the legions of musicians who are influenced by Boland, his impact on the scene is undeniable.

But, just like so many other musicians, Boland was initially paralyzed by the pandemic. At the onset of the March 2020 lockdown, Boland was stuck at home like so many others, which was the longest period of his storied career without performing live.

So what did he do? Create.

Sitting at home with his wife during those early days, whenever the two would talk about things returning to normal, Boland would start singing Steve Winwood’s “Back in High Life Again.” Soon enough, he grabbed a ukulele, started playing chords and thus, his own version born.

Jason Boland & the Stragglers

  • 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.
