It's Hootenanny Time!

Once again (how many times has it been? Anyone?) Big Sandy & the boys will be taking the stage at OC's annual rockin' rollin' blow-out, The Hootenanny (Saturday July 2nd). It is highly suggested that you come early as lines get long and the sun gets hot! BS and the boys will be performing on Main Stage A at 2 PM SHARP!!!! Also of note: The Fly-Rite Boys, Joe, Jeff, and Ash will be backing up that Rockabilly Filly, Miss Rosie Flores at 1 pm!!!

Why, look who's here!!!

Hello strangers! I was sorta nudged by BS blog follower and friend "theLydiaT" (who is sportin' some new Big Sandy inspired ink!) to reactivate this here blog. So, here I am after a four month absence...

Two Fly-Rite shows this weekend, beginning tonight (Friday Feb. 4th) at The Redwood Bar in downtown Los Angeles. DJ Dan Moses will be filling the gaps with the music that moves... but we will be going at it alone tonight. That means two LONG sets from me and the boys... and more fun for all! Bring along your request list and get ready for some surprises!

Tomorrow night (Saturday, Feb. 5th) we'll be returning to the Juke Joint in my home town of Anaheim, CA. We haven't played the ol' JJ in a while and it looks like it's gonna be quite an affair! Joining us will be Buzz Campbell, Johnny Bowler, The Hot Rod Trio, and The Jackpot Club!

I'll be tippin' on in a little more often here on this page, and hope to be posting a little bit more than just gig updates... so stay tuned!

your pal,
Big Sandy
