While Back Porch Orchestra started their journey as a modern band, there’s no doubt that they’re shaped by their homegrown, traditional roots. Since releasing their first album in 2009, BPO has been making strides in the both the local and regional music scenes for eleven years together. Capable of performing both original material rooted in blues, bluegrass, country, and classic rock, or covering any of your favorite hits from the 1950s to now, BPO’s extensive wedding and corporate experience ensures your event will be the talk of the town.
One of the best features of Back Porch Orchestra is the band’s unmatched versatility. For your event, the band can include either an acoustic set, featuring songs from your favorite bluegrass & country artists, or a full electric set, ranging from 2-3 hours, including songs by Journey, Led Zeppelin, R. Kelly, Grateful Dead, Taylor Swift, Bob Seger, Stevie Wonder, Miranda Lambert.
Let us provide music for every part of your event! BPO can handle the live music for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Additionally, one of the band members is a wedding DJ, and can provide DJ services for the reception (upon request). If you are torn on whether or not to hire a band vs. a DJ, Back Porch can provide both, making sure your guests are kept on their feet all night.
The band has repeatedly played corporate events such as the Wyndham Championship afterparty, weddings at the Biltmore Estate & Grove Park Inn, performed at the North Carolina Wine Festival, and many more beautiful venues. We are familiar with what it takes to hold a successful event, and selecting good music is one of the most important components of planning. Be confident in your choice - we are certain that you and your guests will be entertained no matter the occasion.
