When it comes to delivering high-energy rock and roll instrumental music, no one equals the finesse and power of USA band Los Straitjackets.

Since first donning their trademark Mexican masks in 1994, the Grammy-nominated quartet has recorded 11 albums, played all over the world, and still continues to inspire audiences to dance and smile while rocking out. Of course we can’t reveal their actual identities, but it has been suggested that the Clark Kent guises of the band has contributed to their unique sound.

Los Straitjackets are joining forces with renowned Californian singer Big Sandy, for a surf and rock spectacular tour across Australia. Big Sandy is a torchbearer for American roots music and as a bandleader and entertainer, he has few contemporaries. As a longtime friend of Los Straitjackets and having previously recorded with them, the singer was a logical choice when Los Straitjackets decided to tour with a guest vocalist.

The result is a dynamic and exciting show with elements of surf, rockabilly, 60s groove, rock and soul, that is sure to leave audiences howling for more.

In addition, Big Sandy will also be reuniting with Brisbane band The Oz-Rite Boys for a once-only performance for the Brisbane date only. The Oz-Rite Boys (Dan Nosovich, Jon Flynn, Coojee Timms) backed Big Sandy during his tours of GreazeFest in 2003 and 2004 and this show will be their first time back together in ten years!

Opening the night will be red-hot rockabilly outfit, The Hi-Boys, hot on the heels of their overseas shows and cd release, so get ready for a wild evening of music!
