Since forming in 1988 in Southern California, Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys have become one of the world’s most beloved Americana/Roots acts, drawing from the deep musical waters that flow just beneath the surface of Rock & Roll’s fertile soil. A childhood passion for Country, Doo-Wop, and Rhythm & Blues records led Sandy (nee Robert Williams) to pursue a singing career as a teenager, beginning a life in music that continues decades later.
As his record collection continues to grow (75,000 and counting!), so does the depth of the musical influences that stream through his songwriting and singing style. After nearly 35 years on the road and more than two dozen releases to their credit, they remain vital figures on the ever-changing Americana circuit, both on record and live appearances.
