In Their Words: "Wild Blue Yonder is a labor of love for us Western Flyers. This is a recording of three great friends who share the same passion for playing music deemed obsolete by record labels and industry executives all across America. However, we find lots of fine folks everywhere who share our passion and enthusiasm for timeless, well-crafted music.

The songs on Wild Blue Yonder are a collection of the music we love -- authentic Bob Wills-inspired Western Swing, hot jazz and swing standards, cowboy tunes, classic country songs, and toe-tapping, old-time fiddle tunes. Great lyrics, great music, and great musicianship never go out of style. Wild Blue Yonder is our tribute to the music and musicians we love from the 1920s to the 1950s. It is our hope that the album inspires folks to jump into their time machine and revisit the wonderful songs from this special period of American music." -- Joey McKenzie
