“The Podunk Throwbacks are a “throwback” to a time when songwriters did not “lure” listeners with familiar covers and slip their own works in between, but believed in their songs enough to allow them to stand on their own….& that’s exactly what they do. Their music combines lyrics of life experience with a diverse & energetic sampling of different musical styles, providing a little something for everyone to relate to. Together, the Podunk Throwbacks take front-man & songwriter, Todd Skilton’s musical perceptions of life and “throw them back” with a unique sound, no “gimmicks” or formulation & an energy that keeps the audience engaged.
The Podunk Throwbacks started as a duo in 2012, and have evolved into a 5-piece band over the years. They have taken their 3 hours of originals from coffeeshops and hardware stores to the Goshen Stampede, the Elm City Folk Festival &most recently, the Podunk Bluegrass Festival Acoustic stage. They have performed in venues all over CT, MA, NY & RI, & are currently working on their first cd. “
