One of the Washington area's top retro country bands, The
Backroads Band plays classic country music like it was played "back
then". The band’s repetoire includes award winning original songs and
tunes from Karen, Geff & Ira plus cover songs that range from 50’s
rock and roll (Everly Brothers and Chuck Berry) to classic country
(Patsy Cline and Hank Williams). 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.
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).
At this show the band will be celebrating the release of their new CD
“Tail Light Blues”, which features eight songs written by Karen.
Acoustic country quartet, The Blue Moon Cowgirls,
will be opening the show.
