BackPorch Bluegrass is a Wilkes County, NC based group, known throughout the state for their traditional hard-driving bluegrass style. The band was formed in February, 2005 to

- play great music,
- to always be a blessing
- to help others whenever possible

From the traditional songs of Bill Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, IIIrd Tyme Out, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, The Lonesome River Band, Blue Highway to the contemporary flair and artistry of the Kruger Brothers, their influences have one thing in common: GREAT MUSIC! That is what BackPorch Bluegrass has set out to do…Play Great Music!!!

BackPorch Bluegrass is a fan favorite wherever they play – including Carolina in the Fall, ChickenFest, MusicFest n Sugar Grove, The Valle Crucis Creekside Bluegrass Festival, Got to be NC Festival, North Carolina State Fair, The Hunger and Health Coalition Festival, the Winston Cup Museum, Greensboro CAFE and Happy Valley Old Time Fiddlers Convention as well as many private functions to include weddings, receptions, fraternity parties, private parties and bluegrass gospel concerts.

Since 2005, there have been many versions of BPBG, with David Culler being the only original member remaining. Through the many changes, BPBG would not be where they are today without the contributions of each former member.

Jerry Lankford, Editor of The Record of Wilkes, has noted that "BackPorch Bluegrass is a band that delivers – hot and fast. As for strengths, there are no loose boards on this backporch. Frontman David Culler (vocals/guitar), who founded the band, dishes out a heaping helping of high, lonesome sound with one of the strongest bluegrass voices in the region ". Culler is joined by Bassist turned Dobro player turned now to Banjoist Tony Joines. Tony is in his 3rd year with BPBG and a band leader's best friend, always willing to play or do whatever is necessary. While they both play every stringed instrument, Wes Tuttle will be handling the Mandolin/Fiddle duties and bringing some lead and tenor harmony to the Group and Jim Matthews' primary role will be the upright Bass and some smooth Baritone harmony but will be called upon from time to time on the fiddle, mandolin or guitar. Frequently, BackPorch Bluegrass is honored with a special guest, Mr. Jacob Joines, Dobro player for the Darrell Webb Band which makes for an incredible show.

"Whether it's Bluegrass or Bluegrass Gospel, BackPorch Bluegrass offers a sound that is both powerful and inspirational and the quality is suitable for any back, or front, porch in Nashville."
