- WMNF Rockabilly Ruckus
May 11, 2019
6:00 pm - 10:55 pm
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”
Drummer Lindsay Beaver will play, too… ~ Dust off your dancing shoes!
