Original acoustic Americana band Satori Bob has evolved over many years, centered on the work and vision of singer/guitarist/composer John Baumann. John’s songwriting, musicianship and presence has earned him loyal fans across the US. The interplay between longtime accompanist Devin Newman on banjo, noted bassist Jeff Langston, and the highly creative Russ Wilbanks on guitars, round out this fast-rising Eugene, Oregon based acoustic/electric ensemble.
The band conveys a vibrant energy in diverse settings, bringing audiences into the performance with compelling lyrics, uncanny improvisational interplay and strong arrangements.Their appeal has the ability to cross many boundaries with songs ranging from gentle acoustic pieces to hard to ignore social commentary.
