Johnny Bauer is a touring solo or duo musical entertainer from western NY. He is an accomplished guitarist, singer, and harmonica player. With organic percussion looped from the guitar, this is not your typical acoustic performance. Through intimacy and engagement with the crowd, the audience walks away feeling like old friends.  

He incorporates all types of familiar favorites and infectious original songs into his shows, performing soulful americana in the styles of Country, Blues, and Rock. A sound comparable to Merle Haggard meets TOm petty, mixed with vince gill. 

Duo partner, Nicki Paris, plays bass guitar and sings backing vocals. They have performed at breweries and distilleries throughout the US, including all over the west coast of Florida, as well as at private events. Together they have an electricity that draws the audience in.

I've known Johnny since he hit the scene. As a fellow professional musician, I know he is interested in not only the quality of presentation, but also quality interpersonal relations.”
