Clad in their trademark Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling masks, the ‘Jackets’ have delivered their trademark guitar licks across 30 years, 16 albums, thousands of concerts and dozens of films and TV shows. Viva Los Stratjackets!

Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys

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 justbeneath the surface of Rock & Roll’s fertile soil. A childhood passionfor Country, Doo-Wop, and Rhythm & Blues 45s led Sandy (bornRobert Williams) to pursue a singing career as a teenager, beginninga life in music that continues decades later. And as his personalrecord collection continues to grow (75,000 and counting), so doesthe depth of the musical influences that stream through hissongwriting and singing style. A critically acclaimed tribute to Tex-Mex hero Freddy Fender, released at the beginning of the 2020lockdown, points the way forward for Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boysas they continue on a path of musical growth. After nearly 35 years onthe road, and more than two dozen releases to their credit, theyremain key figures on the ever-changing Americana circuit, both onrecord and in live appearances.
