With Asleep In The Hole
Every Tuesday night, members of George Strait’s Ace in the Hole Band and Ray Benson’s Asleep at the Wheel Band have a two-hour ‘jam session’ (there is no other word for it) at Nephew’s in San Marcos. Members of Ricky Calmbach’s, Kevin Fowler’s, and Jason Allen’s bands (and others who happen to be in town) join in. It’s always ‘magic’.
Wayne Douglas came ‘home’ to Texas for a visit and joined in all the fun! For added excitement, Dale Watson and Gene Kurtz came in. You never know who’s going to show up!

Wayne followed Dale and had some hot licks of his own
One of our favorite bassists, Bucky Buchanan, was helping Wayne out.
Wayne’s no stranger to a microphone
Wayne looked and sounded good on that stage!
Might have been smiling at me…..or another one of those pretty waitresses
The crowd was in Wayne’s hands
and he just belted out those songs
