The Western Flyers

The Western Flyers are one of the most exciting new bands to glide on to the music scene in years. Their unique brand of music is a cross section of the Great American Songbook: classic western swing, hot jazz & swing standards, toe tapping cowboy songs and electrifying old-time fiddle tunes.

After 10 years of touring with The Quebe Sisters Band (Joey was the Quebe's fiddle/vocal teacher, musical arranger and guitarist), Joey McKenzie is stepping into this exciting new musical journey. The award winning multi-instrumentalist and archtop guitar slinger brings his signature style and archtop rhythm guitar expertise to the group along with Katie Glassman — 2-time National Fiddle Champion and vintage-style singer extraordinaire — and the incomparable world-class upright bass playing of Gavin Kelso.

Blending tradition with musical innovation, McKenzie and Kelso comprise one of the most electrifying and swinging two-man rhythm sections in the business, and when you add Katie Glassman's phenomenal fiddle playing and singing you get one of the mightiest and exciting trios on the music scene today.
