Texas's finest Western swing, vintage country, hot jazz & swing fiddle band! Equally at home on a festival stage, performing arts hall, private event or a dance party, the Flyers take their unique brand of music coast to coast and around the world. Churning out true blue masterful Texas flavored music, internationally-renowned guitar master Joey McKenzie drives the train, reigning 3-time US National Swing Fiddle champion Katie Glassman's improvisation astounds, and world- class upright bassist Gavin Kelso adds fuel to the fire. Named 'Best Western Swing Group' at the 2017 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, the trio is a singular musical experience; a fresh take on a venerable American art performed by three acoustic virtuosos.

"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 supplement personnel if needed and are open to discussing what works best with each individual event and budget. Flexible, friendly and easy to work with, the trio delivers old school professionalism in every sense and appeal to a diverse cross section of music fans young and old alike.
