Johnny Bauer is a touring musical entertainer from western NY. He is an accomplished singer, songwriter, guitarist , and harmonica player. From solo to 3+ piece band, Johnny’s show is tailored to fit any venue or event. 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 Outlaw Country Greats like Merle Haggard meets the melodic tones of Tom Petty, mixed with John Denver. 

Solo or duo shows incorporate organic percussion looped from his guitar, bringing it beyond your typical acoustic performance. Duo partner, Nicki Paris, plays bass guitar and sings backing vocals. For special occasions, Johnny’s son Ryan joins the two on drums and guitar/vocals. They have performed at breweries , distilleries as well as private events throughout the US, including all over the west coast of FL ,WV, MD, TN, NC, MO, GA and PA. Together they have an electricity that draws the audience in.
