Backseat Revival is a Raleigh-based Alt Country/Rockabilly duo — Wyatt Crabtree on vocals and guitars and Mike Anderson on drums.
Backseat love to cover the classics but 90 percent of their material is original. They’ve played in bands who have shared the stage with the Black Crowes, Hootie & the Blowfish, Widespread Panic, The Romantics, and Toad the Wet Sprocket and have been active in the North Carolina music scene since 1985. Wyatt and Mike formed Backseat Revival early in 2019 and have played several successful shows in Raleigh and just cut a new EP that is available on our site and via Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, and Spotify.
We think our style of Rockabilly and who we are is about more than just playing familiar covers. We don't like to re-use coloring books, you know? We have a brand new set of crayons and a fresh coloring book and want to show you what we can do. Wyatt and Mike are passionate about their original music and it shows in their songwriting and performances.
We are always looking for an opportunity to play at a cool, funky venue or festival and are prepared to develop a professional press kit and media release and to work with promoters and venues on the materials and promotions (on Facebook and other social media platforms) needed to make our appearance a success.
