Big Wy’s Brass Band –
Big Wy’s Brass Band is a New Orleans style brass and funk band based out of Austin, TX. In 2017, Big Wy’s made its first international debut by representing the United States at the Instituto Guatemalteco Americano (IGA) 2017 International Jazz Festival in Guatemala, touring the country while performing and giving master classes. Guatemala was quickly followed by the selection of Big Wy’s for the 2017 CR Promising Artists Tour in Costa Rica. During the tour, Big Wy’s Brass Band was hosted by Centro Cultural Costarricense Norteamericano (CCCN) and played around the country, with the additional honor of performing for President Luis Guillermo Solís at the Afro Descendants Day parade in Puerto Limón.

FLYJACK got its start in 2007 playing a weekly residency at TC’s Lounge on Austin’s deep eastside – a dilapidated but much-loved holdover from Austin’s “chitlin’ circuit” days. In 2008, the band initiated a funk/soul series called “Superfly Soul Party” – featuring other like-minded groups, performing at the Victory Grill and other establishments in and around Austin. In April 2008, FLYJACK moved their residency to Antone’s – Austin’s Home of the Blues – initiating the successful “SuperSoul Mondays.” New album on Spotify!
