Back Porch Swing is a 4 piece acoustic band that blends western swing, jazz, folk and bluegrass to bring you their very own "cowjazz".
Jim and Penny Malmberg started the band in 2003 to showcase their songwriting amid a collection of vintage tunes from across the 20th century. The string band format is ideal for their heartfelt and often comic insights into life, love, and livestock. Hundreds of live shows have helped the band polish their sound to a smooth, seamless finish.
