And now Big Sandy and the boys are headed back to the Ale House on Tuesday night (May 7) for a special show that not only celebrates their upcoming CD What a Dream It’s Been, but also the band’s 25th anniversary together.
That’s right, 25 years, 14 albums and hundreds of thousands of miles on the road…
“When I first got together for a garage rehearsal with a group of musician friends in the spring of 1988 in Anaheim, California, I never dreamed that I would someday be celebrating the silver anniversary of the rocking little band that formed that afternoon,” says Big Sandy. “Yet here I am, looking back over a wild ride that has taken us around the world countless times, that has put us in front of national television audiences, and – most importantly – that has given me the opportunity to play the music that I grew up having such a passion for – Rockabilly, Rock & Roll, Honky-Tonk, Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Doo-Wop.”
