Japple Monkey/Satori Bob, Eugene, OR
Satori Bob is a unigue group of versatile Musicians and Songwriters playing Alternative Americana. The lineup is made up of two singing guitarists, a crazy banjo player (aren't they all?) and bass, resulting in an amazing eclectic sound, capable of producing high energy jump and shout tunes to heart-wrenching ballads. Highly unusual, yet strangely familiar, Satori Bob is a "must see" band!
Japple Monkey is a dynamic group of seasoned players. We concentrate on bringing quality Jazz, R&B and Funk music to Festivals, Corporate Events, Fine Clubs & Casino's and Private Parties.
