Like most any band worth listening to, the Michigan-bred ’Mericana badasses known as Dragon Wagon come most alive, well, live.

And, they say, there’s one thing upon which everyone who’s seen them – from throngs of Midwest festival-goers to lonesome regulars at remote backwoods bars – can agree: “Once you hop on the Wagon, you’ll never forget the ride.”

The band will return to Erie this month, hitchin’ up a while at the King’s Rook Club and inviting us to hop on in around 9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 19.

That the show’s free (that’s right folks, no cover) makes it more than worth the time. But for what the multi-talented folks in Dragon Wagon put out into the crowd – a jazzed-up, fevered-fun (re)vision of Americana, bluegrass, roots rock, and lots of stuff in between – it’d be a bargain even at a price.

For real, though, everybody: If you have the time to take a little ride on the Dragon Wagon, take it, and make it that night.

Wherever they roam, this outfit – named a ‘Band to Watch’ by Relix Magazine – “infuses their music with the soul of the audience to ensure that every crowd at every venue gets perfectly catered, dragonfire-roasted entertainment,” states Dragon Wagon’s bio.

It ought to be damn good fun to see what they bring this time and place around.
