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

Private PartyReviewed on July 12, 2022From Yamhill, OR

They sounded great, they were very friendly and accommodating, I'd hire them again anytime. The communication beforehand was A+ as well.

Thanks for the royal treatment, super fun event and one of the prettiest places we've ever been!
