VLV15 – Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender 15 – Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys

Big Sandy (born Rusty Williams) grew up listening to his parents’ collection of jump blues records. Inspired by the rockabilly revival of the early ’80s, he began to perform with a variety of neo-rockabilly bands in southern California. Formed as a trio in 1988, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys soon expanded to its lineup featuring Wally Hersom (bass), Lee Jeffriess (steel guitar), Ashley Kingman (guitar), and Bobby Trimble (drums).

Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys represent an international collaboration with Kingman and Jeffriess hailing from the U.K. Although they released two albums as Big Sandy & the Fly-Rite Trio, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys’ proper debut album, Jumping from 6 to 6, was produced by ex-Blasters guitarist Dave Alvin. While their second album, Swingin’ West, released in 1995, focused on the Western swing influences on their sound, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys took a more eclectic approach with their effort Feelin’ Kinda Lucky, released in 1997.

The band has been inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame.
