The Backdoor Boys

Craig Cunningham and Kevin Weldon , also known as “The Backdoor Boys”, are not quite like other Boy Bands. In their new show “Bring On The Men!” the draw on material from the musical theater, classic American Standards, and the “counter culture” music scene. In the tradition of “Broadway Backwards”, and reviews like “Whoop-de-Doo!”, and “When Pigs Fly”,they sing and joke their way through Contemporary Life , looking at the world through Lavender Colored Glasses, as it were.

Separately they have cris-crossed the globe performing on Broadway, throughout the US, Canada, Middle East and Europe, Audiences have enjoyed their work on radio, on television, and all types of venues from Radio City Music Hall and the concert stages of Europe to intimate Cabaret clubs on New York City, like Don’t Tell Mama’s and Eighty Eights. Together they have become a crowd favorite in the Berkshires, and Club Helsinki, in Hudson, NY. They put a new spin on some old favorites, and explore lesser known socially and politically satirical numbers.
