WELCOME to BackPorch Banjo
Bluegrass Band 2019
We are an active bluegrass
band hailing from
Parksville-Qualicum Beach.

We are the #1  bluegrass band
in Qualicum since 2014.

BackPorch Banjo came together
 from a desire for all of us
to play good bluegrass music.

BackPorch Banjo is an active traditional bluegrass band. 
If you  need to hire a good bluegrass band, we are available for your special event, party, 
festival, market, birthday, celebration of life, or 
any other occasion.

We had a terrific summer playing lots.  Thank
you to the many kind people who came
out and supported bluegrass music. 
And to all the people who sent us photos, you
rock.  Thank you, we appreciated it!
We will be updating the website
very soon.
