About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Dubbed “The Biggest Little Band in the Land,” powerhouse Western swing & vintage country trio 'The Western Flyers' serve up an irresistibly hot, unmistakably Texas-style sound with an electrifying energy all their own. Featuring a fresh, all-star lineup led by Western swing master Joey McKenzie on rhythm guitar & vocals, champion fiddler Ridge Roberts, upright bassist Matthew Mefford (and as often as possible Grammy award winning telecaster master Redd Volkaert on lead guitar & vocals), they are guaranteed to have even the shyest of wallflowers swinging on the dance floor. Performance highlights include: The Worlds Fair in Dubai, National Folk Festival, Grand Ole Opry, Lowell Folk Festival, Library of Congress, Prairie Home Companion, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, tours in France, South America, Russia and Australia, US Embassy tours and sister city events, folk & bluegrass festivals, fairs and private events across the United States. "I love The Western Flyers. When I listen to them play I know that I am in the presence of modern masters in motion." - Marty Stuart "Together they perform with a brilliance and panache that will draw in any fans of traditional American string music." - Bluegrass Today "The most wonderful modern take on post-war Western Swing" – Country Music People "Somewhere, Bob Wills is smiling" - No Depression

WeddingReviewed on October 15, 2022From Waco, TX

The Western Flyers were incredible! They made our wedding night so magical— and were definitely one of the best parts of the whole experience. They were super communicative and even sent us videos of them playing our first dance to practice to prior to the wedding. They worked with every request we had and are so stinking talented! We would hire them again in a heartbeat and will be telling all our friends to check them out. Our guests loved them too! Absolutely fantastic

Nothing but accolades for the Western Flyers! they are personable, charming, and so very talented! They are great for dancing or just setting the mood. Our guests raved about them, they were a hit!

Corporate FunctionReviewed on April 21, 2022From Dallas, TX

The band was awesome! They sounded great considering they were playing in a warehouse. Their style of music was perfect for our event. We even had couples up dancing. I had only positive feedback from those who attended our party. I would definitely recommend The Western Flyers to anybody who needs a band. Oh and I felt like what they charged was very reasonable.

The Western Flyers:

THANKS Lori, super nice to meet you fun folks, we had a great time. AND y'all had the best brisket and ribs ever. :)
