Here is more on Al Dressen and the rich history of Texas swing.
Swing legend Al Dressen is a native Texan. He was born and raised in Lockhart where he has been entertaining swing dancers since he was in high school.
Al grew up on a large ranch in Central Texas and his family loved to dance. He learned to dance at an early age and still enjoys two steps, jitterbugs, and waltzes.
In 1981 Al took his love for the music of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys and formed a western swing band called Al Dressen’s Super Swing Revue.
The band was voted the Western Swing Band of the year for 2013 by the Academy of Western Artists, and Al was honored by the Cowtown Society of Western Music as a Western Swing Living Hero in 2014.
