Other Comments: If you’re looking
for a band with a swingin’ rhythm and an old timey flavor, look no
further! This group combines the talents of six notable musicians responsible
for the tapping of thousands of feet across Ohio for the last ten years.
Included among the more than eighty-five performances they average each
year, are county fairs, “Music on the Levee,” the Becky Thatcher
at Marietta, Zanesville’s “Lorena” paddlewheel riverboat,
Shaker Woods, Salt Fork Arts & Crafts Fest, Burr Oak and Malabar State
Parks, Lowell Oktoberfest, the Moonshine Festival, Cincinnati’s Appalachian
Fest, and countless square dances! So whether you’re looking for
a family oriented variety act, a hot square dance band with a swinging
rhythm that you can’t resist, or an historical anomaly that will
knock your socks off, we suggest stepping out to The Back Porch Swing Band!
