Grammy-winning Asleep at the Wheel performs at Theater in the Woods on July 31.

There will be plenty of "oohs" and "aahs" coming from AirVenture attendees during the Night Air Show and fireworks on Saturday, July 31. But those will be preceded by plenty of "woo-hoos!" to begin what is sure to be a memorable final evening at AirVenture 2010 as nine-time Grammy winning band Asleep at the Wheel takes the Theater in the Woods stage at 6:45 p.m. Their performance kicks off AirVenture's fabulous final night.

Led by Ray Benson, the Austin, Texas-based band has developed a loyal following since forming 40 years ago, gaining new fans everywhere it plays with its unmatched mix of Americana, blues, country, and western swing.

The legendary band has released more than 20 albums and charted more than 20 singles on the Billboard country charts, including "The Letter That Johnny Walker Read" and "House of Blue Lights." Its most recent album, "Willie and The Wheel" recorded with Willie Nelson, was nominated for Best Americana Album at the 2010 Grammys.

More information is available at the band's website: www.asleepatthewheel.com.

A rare Night Air Show along the flightline will light up the skies following the Asleep at the Wheel concert, beginning at approximately 8:30 p.m. Several air show performers, including the AeroShell Aerobatic Team, along with the "Wall of Fire" and fireworks, will finish off AirVenture's final evening.
