About
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 phenomenal at a party at my home. My guests loved the music and the story they gave behind bluegrass music. I have had them play at previous functions and will continue to do so. Bravo Backstreet for making my party such a great success! Allen

We hired Backstreet for a corporate event, and they were absolutely amazing! We had a last-minute special request, and they were beyond accommodating to help our vision for the event become a reality. Not only were they professional, they went above and beyond to make sure they delivered a great experience for us and our guests. They are all very talented musicians, and everyone was talking about how wonderful they were and how they added so much to our event. Our event was a huge success, in large part because of Backstreet. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

BACKSTREET’s Response:

Thanks Meredith. It was a nice warm autumn evening......not many of those left this year, I'm sad to say. We enjoyed providing music for your event and keep us in mind if you find yourself planning such events in the future. All the best, Jeff Pardue, for Backstreet
