Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys

Lightweight entertainers suffer from acid reflux live (hey, Ashlee!), survive on a steady cocktail of water and lemon, and form far-too-dependent relationships with their personal trainers. Biggie-sized entertainers have more fun pound for pound. For this, the man at the center of Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys is in good company with other famous big guys (Big Bopper, Notorious B.I.G., etc.). Sandy has crooned on more than 11 albums with his boys and sung on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. The band's sound is a buffet of genres, from rockabilly to country and western to swing, with all things Americana in between. What comes across is a sound all their own -- something that can be enjoyed equally by you and your parents. -- Terra Sullivan

Big Sandy swings at 9 p.m. Friday, November 5, at Bamboo Room, 25 S. "J" St., Lake Worth. Tickets cost $22. Call 561-585-2583.
