WMNF 14th Annual Rockabilly Ruckus


This annual event brings out the best swing dancers in the area.   This year’s Ruckus features as our headliner our longtime friends Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys.

Over the last three decades, Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys have kept up a constant cycle of traveling back and forth across the lower 48, then hopping across the pond to Europe and beyond. They bring with them a brand of American music that has earned them an induction into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame, several national television appearances, guest spots on The Grand Ole Opry, and a slew of adoring fans.

“I truly love being out on the road, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to sing my songs all over the world,” said Sandy. “But when I’m away from the U.S. for too long, it’s like I need a recharge… like I need a solid dose of everything Americana. Give me a Chuck Berry song while rolling down the interstate, or a truck stop conversation with a waitress who once danced with Lefty Frizzell, and I’m good for another three thousand miles”

Dust off your dancing shoes! And rev up those vintage Hot Rods for the Car Show and we’ll see you there!!
