If you are looking to give your guests a great taste of North Carolina tradition, we're the band for you. Backstreet combines high energy, fine musicianship, and unsurpassed vocal harmonies to help make your event special. Based in the North Carolina Blue Ridge, Backstreet has been performing their eclectic mix of acoustic roots music since 1985. The band members are all seasoned veterans who have the experience, the repertoire and the chops to give you just the performance you're looking for. Backstreet has performed at countless weddings, private parties, festivals (including world-famous Merlefest), and music venues across North Carolina and the Southeast. The band completed a tour in England and Scotland in 2003. Backstreet has produced 2 CDs; "Another Look"(2002) and "Live at The Famous Bein Inn" (2004).

The band's extensive, intelligent repertoire is influenced by bluegrass, old-time, folk, western swing, blues, and Celtic music to name just a few styles. Band members consider that they are a product of their environment. From their home in the N.C. Blue Ridge they have been exposed to the rich heritage of traditional music this region has fostered. Choosing songs both old and new, songs that everyone knows and gems recovered from the depths of obscurity, Backstreet lends to each song the band's own unique sound and energy. They also perform many original songs written by band members. Strong, tight vocal harmonies are an important element of Backstreet's music.

Backstreet was the best band for our party! They really fit our vibe and were very accommodating to our wants and needs for our party scene. They listened to what we wanted and made professional recommendations and then exceeded our expectations for the party. They enhanced the atmosphere of our Southern Soiree to make the night truly memorable and special. They were friendly and professional with a great sound that made the party extra fun! We even had a group of people dance because the music just made people want to get up on their feet! We received so many compliments on the band we feel confident recommending them to anyone for any occasion!!

Backstreet exceeded all of our expectations! Prompt, professional, kind, and talented. If you want a flawless gig for a very reasonable price, book Backstreet. It was clear from the first note that each member of the band is talented and loves to play. Backstreet entertained our 150 guests for more than 3 hours to rave reviews. Roger and the entire band was easy to deal with, assisted in planning, flexible on songs and genres, and very professional. Highly Recommended!!

Backstreet did a wonderful job playing our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The band was excellent at communicating with us prior to the wedding day and accommodated several special requests for ceremony music. The quality of the music on our day was amazing. We have heard so many compliments about the band from our guests, as was evidenced by all of non-dancing friends and family having a blast on the dance floor. Furthermore, they pulled all of this off for us with four weeks notice when a band we had hired canceled. Truly, I don't know if you can find a better bluegrass band in the area. Backstreet is all around incredible. Many thanks Backstreet!
