Our name is The BackRoads Band because the songs we sing were penned from the back roads of this country by the legends of country music . We're trying to keep the true sound of country music alive. We've been together since 2001 and have played fairs,festivals ,private parties and clubs all around southern MIchigan and Northern Indiana. Some of our influences are , Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, George Jones, George Strait, Alan Jackson, Josh Turner, Dwight Yoakam, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Pam Tillis and many more. Matt is the oldest of 8 kids who grew up singing all their lives and has fronted a country gospel band in the '80's and has been a part of different bands in MI and now fronts The BackRoads Band. Ron and Ellen Gallegos have played music all over MI and have backed many country legends at Prairieville Farm days in Delton ,MI for 20yrs. They were both inducted into the Michigan Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005.
Jim Murphy has been involved in several different bands throughout Michigan for many years. He fronted a band called Johnny Apollo for many years .
