Czech acoustic blues band BACKSiGHT has been on the scene since 2004 and performs various genre music linked with and/or based on blues.
This includes some real good-old-blues fashioned songs with harmonica like “Young Boy”, but also some more 'poppy' ones like “For Her”, or even swing/folk/soul style like in “Fool That Way” that features more drums and double bass. You may also enjoy slide-guitar riffs in open tunings like in "California".
BACKSiGHT's specific style is based on two acoustic guitars with strong lead male vocals accompanied by additional vocals, frequent harmonica, double bass and drums, which have been since 2015 uniquely played at the same time by two of us - we've got them split! One of the guitarists kicks the bass drum & tambourine, and the harmonica player tickles the snare drum.
We used to play covers a lot, gradually have shifted to mostly own original songs.
