Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys

Aug 12, Saturday - 3:30pm
Blues/Big Easy Stage

Since forming 25 years ago, Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys have toured continuously and become torchbearers of American roots music, with their fourteen-album catalog presenting a joyful mix of rockabilly, rock & roll, honky-tonk, rhythm & blues, soul and doo-wop.

Over the last three decades, Big Sandy and his Fly Rite Boys have kept up a constant cycle of traveling back and forth across the lower 48, then hopping across the pond to Europe and beyond. They bring with them a brand of American music that has earned them an induction into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame, several national television appearances, guest spots at the Grand Ole Opry, and a slew of adoring fans.

He and the band have made three appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and their music has been featured on NPR programs Fresh Air and All Things Considered.

What A Dream It’s Been, the group’s latest, is a collection of the band’s favorite original numbers. These all acoustic, reinterpreted takes feature fresh new arrangements, rhythms, and instrumentation.
