About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Welcome to B J Magoon & Driving Sideways, established in 1986. The lineup can vary from a 4 to 7 pieces in an electric format playing a range of Americana & Roots music genres including Roots-Country/Classic/Oldies Rock, Country, Rockabilly, Swing, Blues & Soul and can feature any one of these styles for the entire Event. We currently play several long term Club & Swing Dance gigs and can provide references if requested. Our forte in the electric lineups is playing an uptempo mix of music mentioned above for folks to dance to. We can also play low volume instrumental background music for the "reception/cocktail hour/dinner" portion of an event. We can also play in a semi-acoustic format with a lineup that can vary from a duo to 5 pieces playing any of the Americana & Roots genres mentioned above with the addition of folk & bluegrass music. We play a mix of original songs & material by artists & song writers such as Delbert McClinton, Allen Toussaint, Doc Pomus, Rodney Crowell, Dan Penn, Lieber & Stoller, Etta James, Emmylou Harris, JJ Cale, Vince Gill, Asleep At The Wheel, Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, Jimmie Vaughan, Bonnie Raitt, Hank Williams, BB King, Carl Perkins, The Band, Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Elvis, Brian Setzer and many more. We would love to play for your event, satisfaction guaranteed!

Review by Bill S.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on June 22, 2019From Sherborn, MA

Totally professional, accommodating and nice folks. That's great but you'll want to hire them because these guys (and Liz) CAN REALLY PLAY!! They are fantastic. A number of our guests are musicians and they all were floored.

B J Magoon & Driving Sideways:

Bill & Rosemary ?are the best customers & hosts. They were totally accommodating, very easy going & flexible. We received nothing but compliments from them and their guests and the weather couldn't have been better for an outdoor event! Thank you! B J Magoon & Driving Sideways
