Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys

Over the last three decades, Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys have kept up a constant cycle of traveling back and forth across the lower 48, then hopping across the pond to Europe and beyond. They bring with them a brand of American music that has earned them an induction into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame, several national television appearances, guest spots on The Grand Ole Opry, and a slew of adoring fans.

"I truly love being out on the road, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to sing my songs all over the world," said Sandy. "But when I'm away from the U.S. for too long, it's like I need a recharge... like I need a solid dose of everything Americana. Give me a Chuck Berry song while rolling down the interstate, or a truck stop conversation with a waitress who once danced with Lefty Frizzell, and I'm good for another three thousand miles".

Lance Lipinsky

Sleepy LaBeef

For half a century, Sleepy LaBeef has lived his life on stages, in honky-tonks, and on the road. He has released records in six different decades and has had chart success as far back as the sixties and as recently as the year 2000. Sleepy LaBeef has shared bills with practically every great in music history: Elvis Presley, George Jones, Roy Orbison, Wanda Jackson, Carl Perkins, has numbered in his band over five hundred people (including the likes of Doug Kershaw, Kenny Rogers, Glen Campbell, D.J. Fontana, and Grady Martin), and has been an admitted influence to such a variety of people as Brian Setzer, Bruce Springsteen, and the Beatles.

As significant as his recording career has been, it is the live Sleepy LaBeef that is important. Today, at 76, Sleepy still performs two hundred shows a year and plays with such energy that people a third of his age are annihilated when they attempt to keep up with him.

Sleepy LaBeef's live sets are truly indescribable. One must see them to understand that he is doing nothing less than giving up his body to the spirit of the music and testifying. In this day of studio effects and ever-changing technology, many record buyers wonder why a live show even matters. Sleepy LaBeef is the answer.

After hitting every possible venue in the Milwaukee area, they became a regular act at Lee's Liquor Lounge in Minneapolis and many venues in Chicago. The Exotics were the featured act at a surf music showcase at SXSW in Austin, Texas. The band has toured the Midwest, the East Coast and Florida, largely due to the success of their 1996 release, "Go Go Guitars." In 2005, the Exotics made a featured appearance on the long running public radio program, A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor and played at Chicago Exotica. In 2009, The Exotics released the "Lost Album," their first in many years.

In the summer of 2010, the boys embarked on their "California Tiki Tour," playing the state's tiki hot spots including Forbidden Island, Trader Vic's and Don The Beachcomber.

Jackson Sloan

Jackson Sloan, over the years, has built up a reputation as an exceptionally talented and gifted frontman


Lil' Mo and the Dynaflos came about one night around 2004 at the World Famous Derby Club in Los Angeles as "Lil' Mo" Morris Everett and Cliff Quan discussed their love for Doo Wop music. Lil' Mo, being a veteran of previous vocal groups and Cliff, being an avid Doo Wop listener and rockabilly guitar

player, decided "Why not give it a go ourselves"?​​​​​​​​​​ The rest is history!

The original group consisted of 5 vocalists and 4 musicians, whom Cliff recruited from the creme of the crop of L.A.'s Rockabilly and '50's Rhythm and Blues scene. Unlike other vocal groups, Cliff's idea was to make the band an integral part of the group (instead of a vocal group with a back up band). This idea was to form the structure and sound of "The Dynaflos". The current line-up consists of 4 vocalists and 4 musicians.

The Dynaflo's set consists of some obscure 50's-60's Doo Wop, some standards and some original tunes. Something for everyone! They blend their style of 50's, 60's, Doo Wop and R&B, with an upbeat, rockin' band. Combine that with a high energy stage show and you'll find one undeniably fun, hard working, Doo Wop group that is hard to ignore. They are becoming high in demand at car shows, swing dances, parties, clubs, etc... and have played two very successful shows overseas, in Spain and in England. Their original music ​​​​​​​​​​have been used in movies such as Lionsgate Film's "The Winning Season" and highly acclaimed independant film "The Deuce of Spades".
