Local Countryfest Artist Profile – The Back 40 Band

Once again we highlight another  one of the premier country bands of the area, and we’ve enjoyed a long relationship with this one– the Back 40 Band.

I can remember bringing my mother to see these guys years ago at a bar in Ballston Spa, and she raved about them.  I’m sure she would rave about them now too ( you’re mother’s always right, correct?)

They’ve gone thru many transformations, but the essence of what they are remains the same- a talented, rock solid band totally committed to Country music.  You can catch them for FREE at the block party on Pearl Street at 3PM
