WELCOME to BackPorch Banjo
Bluegrass Band 2019

We are an active bluegrass
band  from
Parksville-Qualicum Beach.

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

BackPorch Banjo is an active traditional bluegrass band
based out of Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island. 
If you  need  a  bluegrass band, we are available for your special event, party, 
festival, market, birthday, celebration of life, or 
any other occasion. 

  We welcome you to have a listen...
