Big Sandy (born Rusty Williams) grew up listening to his parents’ collection of jump blues records. Inspired by the rockabilly revival of the early ’80s, he began to perform with a variety of neo-rockabilly bands in southern California. Formed as a trio in 1988, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys soon expanded to its lineup featuring Wally Hersom (bass), Lee Jeffriess (steel guitar), Ashley Kingman (guitar), and Bobby Trimble (drums).

Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys represent an international collaboration with Kingman and Jeffriess hailing from the U.K. Although they released two albums as Big Sandy & the Fly-Rite Trio, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys’ proper debut album, Jumping from 6 to 6, was produced by ex-Blasters guitarist Dave Alvin. While their second album, Swingin’ West, released in 1995, focused on the Western swing influences on their sound, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys took a more eclectic approach with their effort Feelin’ Kinda Lucky, released in 1997.

The band has been inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame.
