Further Event Information
No one equals the finesse and power of Los Straitjackets when it comes to delivering high-energy rock and roll instrumental music. Since first donning their trademark Lucha Libre masks before a record store appearance in 1994, the band has recorded 11 albums, played around the world, and never failed to inspire an audience to smile while rocking out.
A well loved figure to audiences on both sides of the Atlantic,Big Sandy is the charismatic vocalist and band leader of Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys.
Since forming in 1988, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys emerged as one of the world’s most respected practitioners of roots music, western swing, rockabilly and traditional country - and performing like they invented it.
When Big Sandy & Los Straitjackets join forces, watch out ! This is a high energy rock 'n' roll show delivered with great enthusiasm, style and humour that is impossible not to move your feet to. It is their first ever performance in Ireland, a rare treat for fans of this guitar driven, mask wearing, rock en espanol combo.
