The Porchistas started as a bunch of friends singing songs late into summer nights, on their rickety porch on Forest Street in Montclair, New Jersey.
That evolved to DIY house concerts and block parties that continue today. Their songs navigate through the rock genre; Folk, swing, surf, reggae, ska, polka, blues, psychedelic, punk - always rock and roll.
The Porchistas have performed at the WNTI Stage Festival, The Jersey Shore Music Festival, The Wellmont Theater and The Hoboken Arts & Music Festival, just to name a few. In October 2017 they were aired on WFMU's "Dance With Me, Stanley" for two consecutive episodes with DJ Stashu, first live on air, then taped live in Studio B for live broadcast and for WFMU's free music archives.
With the 2014 release of their 5th CD, “Shoot it at the Sun” The Porchistas built upon their reputation for deft songwriting. "Combining an honest simplicity with a wicked talent for arrangement and construction, The Porchistas’ great new CD, Shoot It At The Sun, is the surefire money shot straight into that elusive, face turning solar plexus of musical success." John Pfeifer The Aquarian Weekly
In June 2018 the band released Porch Drive - 10 Porchistas tunes on flash drive wrist bands. It was deemed the 'Record of the Week' in & NJ Stage Magazine. "...songwriting that best accentuates eclectically expressed roots and globe-spanning styles makes “Porch Drive” the strongest release yet by The Porchistas." (Bob Makin).
