Backyard Cohort. Born in the south side suburbs of Chicago, BC has been playing their brand of acoustic jam rock at fine pubs and historic venues since 2005. Backyard Cohort turns heads with their distinguished looks, big personalities, and a collective propensity to
blow fans minds!

Backyard Cohort first came together shortly after founding member andfront man, Michael Enguita, started playing a weekly gig at a pub in Orland Park, IL. After inviting Pat and Steve to join him, it became clear that a band was coming together. This residency lasted for two
and a half years, giving the guys time to gel as a band and write original material. It was not long before fans started to request the tracks “Bridge,” “New Shoes,” “Fallacy,” and “Mr. Baker.”

Michael Enguita is an engaging front man with a passion for music and the rare ability to win over the crowd. Pat Shannon’s playful demeanor, magnetic energy, and skillful drumming make him the beating heart of the band. Steve Jackson completes the rhythm section with his
ardent musicianship while contributing his lively stage presence to every performance. The sonic fury produced by the lead guitar of Ryan Frahm is a highlight of every Backyard Cohort show and has revitalizeda stalwart of the Chicago music scene.
