Event and Artist Info:

Since forming in 1988, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys have emerged as one of the world's most respected practitioners of American roots music, western swing, rockabilly, and traditional country-playing it like they invented it.

Twenty-five years, fourteen albums & hundreds of thousands of miles. What a dream it's been.

"When I first got together for a garage rehearsal with a group of musician friends in the spring of 1988 in Anaheim, California, I never dreamed that I would someday be celebrating the silver anniversary of the rocking little band that formed that afternoon.. Yet here I am, looking back over a wild ride that has taken us around the world countless times, that has put us in front of national television audiences, and - most importantly - that has given me the opportunity to play the music that I grew up having such a passion for - Rockabilly, Rock & Roll, Honky-Tonk, Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Doo-Wop... and now with the release of our new all-acoustic album "What A Dream It's Been", even a touch of Jamaican Rocksteady. Putting together the new record for Cow Island Music has brought back a flood of memories; we went through our entire catalogue of LP's, picked out some of our favorite original numbers, and gave them fresh new arrangements, rhythms, and instrumentations. In many ways , it was our way of looking back at everything that has led us to where we are now, while looking forward towards new musical horizons.
Happy 25th Anniversary, Fly-Rite Boys! Here's to 25 more!"
