Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys
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”.

The Rock-A-Sonics are an exciting rockabilly band led by young phenom, Willie Barry who is getting attention around the globe. They play a versatile mix of authentic rockabilly, vintage country, and atomic age rock and roll.

In January 2014 an extraordinary teenaged singer hopped a time machine from the fifties and landed on the doorstep of four Washington DC area rockabilly musicians. They initially got together just to play a single show (a Buddy Holly tribute), but quickly realized the combination should become a regular thing and the Rock-A-Sonics were born. Their deep playlist and variety of styles and tempos have made them a favorite of the DC/MD/VA/PA swing dance communities and Americana music fans everywhere.

The Rock-A-Sonics are playing regularly at clubs, carshows, dances, and street festivals throughout the mid Atlantic area. They've appeared nationally at the Viva Las Vegas rockabilly weekender in 2016 and 2017, the New England Shake-Up weekender in 2017, and twice at
Musikfest in Bethlehem Pa. plus classic car shows such as the Hot Rod Rumble, Mobtown Greaseball, Gasket Goons, and Jalopy Showdown.

Members of The Rock-A- Sonics have played with Marti Brom, Deke Dickerson, Collins Kids, Sleepy LaBeef, Jumpin' Jupiter, J.P. McDermott and Western Bop, the Hurtt Brothers, Four Star Combo, Pink and Black, Out Behind The Barn, Kiti Gartner, Natty Beaux, The Peashooters, Old Line Skiffle Combo, Daryl Davis, Bill Kirchen, Jake Starr and the Delicious Fullness, Nils Lofgren, and Ringo Starr.
