Since 2005, there have been many versions of BackPorch Bluegrass as many great musicians have come and gone. David Culler, the leader and founder of the group is the only original member that remains while progressively growing the band to today’s high quality, hard driving and highly sought after NC based band.
Jerry Lankford, Editor of The Record of Wilkes, has noted that “BackPorch Bluegrass is a band that delivers – hot and fast. As for strengths, there are no loose boards on this backporch.
Front man David Culler (vocals/guitar), dishes out a heaping helping of high, lonesome sound with one of the strongest bluegrass voices in the region.” David’s love of Bluegrass music inspired him to pick up the guitar in 2004 prior to forming the band
Bassist turned Dobro player turned now to Banjoist Tony Joines is a superb musician. Tony is in his 5th year with BPBG and a band leader’s best friend, always willing to play or do whatever is necessary. Tony’s career has seen him with other groups in the past.
Although they both play every stringed instrument, Wes Tuttle handles the Mandolin/Fiddle duties and brings some lead and tenor harmony to the group. He has played with many professional groups in his time and brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the band
Jim Matthews’ primary role is the upright Bass and some lead and smooth Baritone harmony but is called upon from time to time to play fiddle, mandolin and guitar. Jim is another great musician with lots of experience playing in bands all over the country and is steeped in skill in all genres of music.
BackPorch Bluegrass is frequently honored with a special guest, Mr. Jacob Joines 2011 Galax Fiddlers Convention Dobro championand fulltime member of the Darrell Webb Band which makes for an incredible show.
“Whether it’s Bluegrass or Bluegrass Gospel, BackPorch Bluegrass offers a sound that is both powerful and inspirational and the quality is suitable for any back, or front porch in Nashville.”
