Guitarist and Singer Bob Bakert
Bob Bakert is a life-long, dedicated and passionate songwriter and musician, having performed for over 40 years in countless venues. His guitar and vocal experience comes from several different genres of music, from Americana, Folk, R&B, Motown, Rock and Jazz and his style has morphed into one that blends all of them and is truly his own- decidedly relaxed and low key with a smoldering energy. Says Bakert, “In the past 40 years, there haven’t been six days when I haven’t picked up the guitar and played. At this stage in my life, what’s most important is having fun in what you do.”
Combining all of the influences of contemporary American music., Bob Bakert’s show is a carefully crafted set including original music as well as many favorites. Drawing from iconic acoustic artists like James Taylor and Gordon Lightfoot as well as blue eyed soul and jazz-blues artists like Boz Scaggs and Robben Ford, Bob and his band mates, celebrated Atlanta musicians Chris Riggenbach (bass), Jared Lanham (drums), Dustin Cottrell (piano) and Wil Hollifield (saxophone) will give new treatments to many classics from the “Great American Songbook”. This approach gives the listener the excitement of true jazz improvisation while ample familiar favorites keep you wanting more.
