Like a Midwest summer storm blowing across the plains, the Back Porch Blues Band roars into town providing the best variety of original contemporary blues in the Heartland. The band's influences range from Chicago to Texas to Funk to West Coast Swing and everything in between. Four seasoned individual musicians have come together to form a cohesive unit that is even greater than the sum of the parts. The Back Porch Blues Band puts forth an exciting new sound that has thrilled music lovers for more than a decade!
After invigorating the crowd at the 2012 Paxico Blues Festival, the Back Porch Blues Band took things to another level in 2013. In addition to their regular club dates throughout eastern Kansas and the Kansas City area, the festival season saw them rocking stages at the Spirit of Kansas Blues Festival in Topeka, Tunes & Tobacco Weekend in Weston, MO, the Coleman Hawkins Blues Festival in St. Joseph, MO and the Jammin' in JC Blues Festival in Junction City, KS.
The band is looking forward to new and exciting things in 2014 starting with the release of their first studio CD in January. Eleven original songs showcase both the musical talent and songwriting ability of the band. A full schedule of festival and club dates will give their fans plenty of opportunities to see them live and enjoy their unmistakeable sound.
