Having an adjective before your name makes a bold statement. Lil Wayne. Notorious B.I.G. Rowdy Roddy Piper. With a name like Big Sandy & the Fly-Rite Boys
, the idea might seem like the “big” should apply only to Sandy. Although he is a big guy, that “big” in his name describes his huge voice and massively impressive rockabilly band. Playing up to par each time, Big Sandy and his band keep the mood up beat and swingin’ all while keeping their hair greased back and suits neatly matching, as if the 1950s never left. It’s go big or go home on Friday, May 18, at Rancho Nicasio. 1 Old Rancheria Road, Nicasio. 8:30pm. $12–$15. 415.662.2219.
