The Backtalk Band is one of Central New York's most versatile groups.
Comprised of four accomplished and professional musicians, the band includes
Jim Lawrence (bass, vocals), Bob Keefe (guitar, vocals),
John White (keyboards, vocals),and Mark Joyce (drums, vocals).
Hailing from small towns around and including Ithaca, NY, The Backtalk Band has
been pleasing audiences for over seventeen 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, Wild Cherry, Billy Joel, etc.),
up to the 1980's and beyond  (The Romantics, Kenny Loggins, Bob Seger,
John Cougar Mellencamp, Paul Simon and Bruce Springsteen).
