Fans of swing music should look no further than Valhalla Tahoe when scoping out this week’s live entertainment. On Wednesday, Aug. 9, the venue welcomes Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys to the Boathouse Theatre.

“Authenticity is the key to the music of Rockabilly Hall of Fame members Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys. Although they’ve moved from their rockabilly roots to a sound that encompasses folk, bluegrass, Western swing, Cajun and mariachi influences, the six-piece, Southern California-based band continues to be faithful to the music of the past,” states Valhalla Tahoe’s website.

The band formed in 1988 and has since released 14 albums drawing from rock ‘n’ roll, honky-tonk, doo-wop and more.

“Despite their connection with days gone by, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys maintain a foot in the present as well. With one of the most beautiful and unique voices in modern popular music and an unbeatable, swinging band, Big Sandy is a must-see artist,” continues the venue’s site.

Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys dropped their most recent record, “What A Dream It’s Been,” in August 2013.

“It is our way of looking back at everything that has led us to where we are now. I feel like we’re sounding better than ever and experimenting musically. While it’s a reflection of our past, this album is really a hint of things to come,” said frontman Robert “Big Sandy” Williams.

Tickets range from $23-$35 for the 7:30 p.m. show and are available online through, where additional information can also be found.
