Big Sandy & 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 .



 




 


 


Matthew James & the Rust Belt Union


Matthew James hails from Downriver, Michigan. A seedy hustling underbelly of Detroit. He left rambling around with Rickett Pass and the Back Home in Michigan Band for a handful of years before running out of gas and coffee in Des Moines, IA. As he shrugged his shoulders and lit a cigarette he decided to hang his hat in Iowa. Where he was lucky enough to meet Wrex Hill, Nathan Emerson, Jason Bordeaux, Matt Miller and Brad Hanson which now make up the Rust Belt Union. After two rehearsals it was clear that the Rust Belt Union was here to stay. This is Midwest Junk Soul. The songs of hard working, land locked dirty hand blues.
