ARVADA, CO - On Saturday, July 28 at 7:30 p.m. the Arvada Center welcomes Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys to its outdoor amphitheater. Opening the show are The Hacienda Brothers. This concert is sponsored by DBC Irrigation.
Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys have emerged as one of the world's most respected practitioners of American roots music, western swing, rockabilly and traditional country-playing like they invented it. In a voice reminiscent of Buddy Holly-sweet and smooth and sincere-Big Sandy delivers songs that double as musical short stories. Having played the Grand Ole Opry and Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys are bringing some great old-time rock 'n' roll to the Arvada Center.
The Hacienda Brothers first introduced their wood-smoked blend of stone country and old-school R&B on their self-titled 2005 debut album. Led by cult heroes Chris Gaffney and Dave Gonzalez, the fresh new group was just nominated for the Americana Music Award's "Group of the Year." Hailed as "the sound of western soul," The Hacienda Brothers bring a refreshing mix of western soul, country and early rock 'n' roll to this amazing night of music and fun!
Tickets are $28 for reserved covered seats and $18 for general admission on the lawn. For tickets, call the Arvada Center box office at (720) 898-7200 or visit arvadacenter.org. All summer concerts are held rain or shine.

In compliance with city regulations, no alcoholic beverages or glass containers can be brought into the amphitheater. The Arvada Center offers beer and wine service.
