One of the Washington area's top retro honky tonk bands, The Backroads Band plays classic country music like it was played back then. 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 buckle polishing slow tune. Their sound is vintage country from the 1940s-1970s with a bit of early rock in roll thrown in. The band’s repertoire also includes their original roots songs written in that early country style.
The band features Karen Collins (vocals, fiddle, and rhythm guitar), Ira Gitlin (lead guitar and vocals), Geff King (bass and vocals) and Rob Howe (drums). All four of the Backroads members have been performing musicians for many years and bring a wide array of diverse musical experiences to the group. The group's sound is hard driving with a country heart and just the right amount of twang.
