$700 - $2400 per event
One of the Washington D.C area's top retro honky tonk bands, The Backroads Band plays CLASSIC COUNTRY music with a dash of 50's rock thrown in. In no time at all, they'll have you out on the dance floor doing a boot scootin' two step or snuggling up close for a slow tune. If you prefer an acoustic sound, we also play as an ACOUSTIC BLUEGRASS/COUNTRY group with fiddle, acoustic guitar,banjo and bass. Their sound is vintage country from the 1940s-1970s plus original roots songs written in that early country style.

Karen, the lead singer is a coal miner's daughter from Southwest Virginia who grew up listening to country music. For several years in a row, Ira, the lead guitar player has won multiple WAMMIES for best instrumentalist in both the bluegrass and country categories.

I truly enjoyed the band. They were on time, ready to go for the party, were reasonable costing especially for their outstanding music. I would hire them again. Everyone at the party loved them!

Backroads Band’s Response:

Thanks so much, Irene. We had a lot of fun playing for your party. Your guests were all so friendly and you welcomed us as part of the party rather than the "hired hands". Karen & the Backroads Band

The band was timely, accommodating, and very talented. The agreed on songlist went very smoothly. The vision of how this 15 minute performance would go in the middle of a funeral reception celebrating a lifelong bluegrass lover and banjo player was completely realized. Karen and Ira were just great.
