About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Dubbed “The Biggest Little Band in the Land,” powerhouse Western swing, country & honky tonk 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 tappin' their toes or 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

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 16, 2023From Odessa, TX

We loved having The Western Flyers be a part of our wedding day! They were very professional. Their manager was able to answer any questions we had leading up to the event. Their sound is so full and is amazing! Whether dancing or enjoying the ambiance, all of our guests had a great time. Highly recommend The Western Flyers for any event.

The Western Flyers:

Thanks so much Sydney - there's nothing like a Texas flavored wedding! We hope to cross paths with y'all again and watch your moves on the dance floor! :) TWF

WeddingReviewed on October 17, 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
