About
Texas's finest Western swing, vintage country, hot string jazz, Texas fiddle band! Equally at home on a festival stage, performing arts hall, private event or dance party, the Flyers take their unique brand of music coast to coast and around the world. Churning out true blue masterful, hip, authentic Texas flavored music, internationally-renowned guitar master Joey McKenzie drives the train, reigning 4-time US National Swing Fiddle champion Katie Glassman's improvisation astounds, and world- class upright bassist Gavin Kelso (Texas dates) or Matthew Mefford (out of state dates) add fuel to the fire. Named 'Best Western Swing Group' at the Ameripolitan Awards, as well as their debut album 'Wild Blue Yonder' receiving the Best Western Swing Album Award from both the Academy of Western Artists and the Western Music Association. Equally comfortable in attire appropriate for a black tie event or western duds, the trio delivers old school professionalism in every sense, appealing to a diverse cross section of music fans young and old alike.

"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

Performance highlights include: The National Folk Festival, Grand Ole Opry, tours of France, South America, Russia and Australia, Lowell Folk Festival, TedxMile High, Library of Congress, Prairie Home Companion, Texas State Fair, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, US Embassy tours, to name but a few. Although small in number they are dubbed "The Biggest Little Band in the Land", and folks often comment, "You guys sound bigger than you look"! On occasion the Flyers may play as a duo or as a four piece and are open to discussing what works best with each individual event and budget. References available upon request.

This was one of the best experiences we have had musically at our church. The Western Flyers were extremely professional and the music was amazing. Everyone had a great time, and we will definitely use them in the future.

From the moment I heard them on-line, I knew they were the best fit for my client event. Their sound is toe-tapping good and makes for a lively night.They were easy to contact and answered all of my questions on a timely manner. They traveled from north Texas to San Antonio and were early for set-up. They arranged for a local sound person and saved me the hassle. Our event was held at the San Antonio Zoo and Zoo staff requested their information for future possibilities. Besides professional, and incredibly accommodating, they're downright nice and talented. The clients LOVED them too. After dinner, no-one moved, they just sat and enjoyed. Thanks Western Flyers!
