On Saturday, February 2, Satori Bob played a great show at a beautiful concert hall at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. Following a KLCC live radio appearance, a larger-than-expected crowd showed up and was very appreciative. Thanks to Niki and the crew at Lincoln City Cultural Center, as well as the historic Anchor Inn (hope we didn't keep you folks up too late). As a band, we are hitting a stride that is really satisfying and fun. We're looking forward to many more adventures like this one. A real stage, a listening crowd, and some great recordings. Thanks to everyone who came out for the show.
2013 looks to be a promising year for Satori Bob. We just finished a year that featured the release of our popular CD "Strangely Familiar," are seeing our songs get some radio play, and finished the year with a great show in front of a very appreciative crowd at one of our favorite venues, the Axe and Fiddle in Cottage Grove, OR. Our CD release party was a tremendous success in November, and the band is turning heads. We have some great things in the works for 2013, including a busy gig schedule that begins in January with shows at S'Wine, Creswell Coffeehouse, the Drift Inn, and on Feb 2, the Lincoln City Cultural Center. We are looking to expand out of the Oregon area into selected festivals and showcases. Stay tuned...
"I absolutely love the new CD. The stories take me down different roads and trips while Johns voice pulls you in. I like how all the instruments interweave with each other yet at the right moments allow breathing in the songs."
We have the first song from our new CD, "Strangely Familiar," finished !! Check out "Beats Me" here on our site.
Last weekend we played a marvelous gig at Eugene Saturday Market, complete with interpretive dancers, bright sunshine, and that unique Eugene vibe. Satori Bob is optimistic about the coming year and the positive feedback we've been getting.
Satori Bob just finished 3 gigs in two days, and had a great time musically. We're starting to realize just how good our PA sounds, compared to the festival style " show up with your guitar and we'll do your sound" roulette game. We endured waves of horrific feedback at one gig, and very mixed sound at the other. Playing through our JBL Eon 15 speakers, Soundcraft board, and light Lexicon reverb, we had pristine sound that has not been matched by festival PAs. Musically, we had a ball as a trio, guitars and vocals and bass, though we did miss our strange and twisted banjo player, Devin. We have another gig next weekend at Holy Cow, but the whole band won't regroup till September.
