The Backtalk Band is one of Central New York's most versatile groups.
Comprised of four accomplished and professional musicians from the Ithaca, NY area,
The Backtalk Band has been pleasing audiences for over eighteen years. The Backtalk Band's
playlist reads like a Who's Who of Rock 'n' Roll. Each performance runs the gamut of Rock 'n' Roll
history from the 1960's (The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Turtles, The Young Rascals,
The Monkees, The Rolling Stones, Roy Orbison and more), through the 1970's (Loggins & Messina,
Van Morrison, Billy Joel, etc.), up to the 1980's and beyond (The Romantics, Bob Seger,
John Cougar Mellencamp, Paul Simon and Bruce Springsteen).

Boyce Thompson Institute, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY
On behalf of the staff event planning committee at The Boyce Thompson
Institute, would like to thank
The Backtalk Band for another fantastic
performance at our annual holiday party.
As always, they filled our
evening with great music.
We have been booking The Backtalk Band for our organization’s annual
holiday party for over 7 years
and are extremely pleased every year.
Over the years, we have received countless compliments from attendees
of all ages. Jim Lawrence is accommodating, kind, and easy to work
with. All contact with The Backtalk Band
is always met with a prompt
and courteous response.
The Backtalk Band is elegant, entertaining, well-dressed, and extremely
professional. They have an extensive
repertoire and perfectly
accommodate our diverse crowd, setting a festive holiday mood with some
wonderful jazz melodies in the early evening then transitioning into
classic rock favorites to fill the dance floor as the night unfolds.
They have our highest recommendation. Thanks Backtalk Band!
