Back Adit is a 4 or 5 pc. band (we have the option to include the drummer if needed) located in the inland NW (Spokane to Libby, MT) and we play, for lack of a better description, eclectic retro jazz/swing. We are influenced by Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks as well as the styles of the 1940's dance era. I play tenor, alto and soprano sax, flute, harmonica and misc. percussion (when we don't use the drummer), lead and back-up vocals. Dave Williamson plays acoustic and electric guitar, lead and back-up vocals. Gary Lawrence plays bass, lead and back-up vocals. Wayne Rau plays acoustic and electric mandolin and banjo. Mark Clark plays drums with us on occasion and is an excellent addition. We try to emphasize our vocals and in most songs use 3 part harmonies and lots of call & response type singing.

Deposit is Required| Pricing is for all event types
The Back Adit Band performs swing and jazzy fun music. We love what we do and you'll love us too! We have a great Bose sound system and additional componants for larger venues. We have our own stage lights, as well, for outdoor venues.
Price is based on an event located within 200 miles of Libby, Montana. If the event is located closer and whether or not rooms and meals are included, price can be negotiable. We would like as much notice as possible as we do book up fast during the summer months. Back Adit reserves the right to not accept a booking if there is a scheduling conflict.
We can often, depending on the tune, learn a special request song if given enough time (usually a couple of months in advance).
