“A heaping of harmony and a whole lotta hokum is what you’re in for when the Back Porch Apostles roll into town. The music these boy’s make is like mixing together the dark and light loads of laundry ….. you’ll recognize it when it comes out but it sure ain’t the same as when it went in. Happyfyin’ audiences young and old, find yourself making friends,…… perched up on the porch.” – Vashon Island Strawberry Festival


These ain't your grandfather's versions! The Back Porch Apostles turn each song upside down and inside out and make it their own special sound.

"All killer, no filler."


- Phil Bengston

“If you only attended the concert, you probably had a lovely
time, but missing Friday evening’s Musicale was like, well, missing one of
Michael Tacchia’s pre-concert lectures. You love and appreciate the music, but
much of the musical back story is missed.”


- Highland Community News (USA) March, 2012
