"...In addition to good music, the band’s (BackDrop’s) strengths also include good showmanship, as they frequently delight and awe the crowd..." - Iowa City West Side Story


"What's Next?" - Album Released June 6th, 2008



BackDrop is a three-piece New Alternative Rock/Pop group out of Iowa City, Iowa. Their music combines explosive instrumentals with catchy vocals that are meant to connect with listeners and be meaningful to everyone. In an age of computerized songs and more instruments than fingers on your hand, BackDrop is making music for reasons more than just to impress a record label. Whether it is through the stories behind their songs, or by hanging out with fans, BackDrop aims to do anything they can to make their music not about themselves, but about others. With a high energy performance and the belief that nothing shows a band's musicianship better than great original songs, BackDrop has been entertaining thousands throughout the Midwest with over 75 shows in less than a year together.
