"Crossed Up" features Jalan Crossland and Dang Ol' Boys Oct. 8 in Casper

The Corridor Gallery in Casper announces “Crossed Up," a concert featuring some of the region’s most talented and entertaining musicians for a single evening show. Wyoming native Jalan Crossland is traveling to Casper from his home town of Ten Sleep to play a solo set following hometown guests Dang Ol’ Boys (shown in photo). To finish the evening, Jalan and the Dang Ol’ Boys will be joining together for a grassroots finale set bringing a backyard feel to the event. The show will be on Friday, October 8, at the Wolcott Galleria Theatre in downtown Casper starting at 8 p.m. with the doors opening at 7 p.m.

Crossland's primary tool of musical expression has always been the guitar. In 1997, Jalan placed 2nd at the Winfield, Kansas, National Fingerstyle Guitar competition, and 1st in the state flatpicking contest of his Wyoming home. These added to dozens of regional championship awards, attest that his playing is (according to the Rapid City Weekly News) "...so dexterous that when he stops at the end of a song, you realize you forgot to breathe."

The Dang Ol’ Boys are an 8-piece band comprised of Ben Derby on fiddle, Bob Marnell playing lead Guitar, Brendan Lamb on guitar, banjo and vocals, Dennis Lamb on mandolin, Erick Parks behind the drum kit, Sean Ingledew delivering lead vocals and harps, Tim Lamb on guitar and Travis Johnson behind the stand-up bass. The Dang Ol’ Boys popularity has exploded locally due to their high-energy technical fusion of bluegrass, alt-country and punk rock roots.

Tickets will be available for the event starting on Monday, September 13, at The Corridor Gallery, Sonic Rainbow CDs and Wind City Books. General Admission tickets will cost $20 and balcony seating will be $30. Only 400 tickets are available, so patrons are encouraged to act fast. The show is all ages and beer will be sold over the bar for age verified attendants.
