-D.A. Pennebaker

"Because of his courage in portraying the lights and shadows of a complex character as Bobby Bare Jr, with subtlety and a very skillful use of cinema verite."

More on Bobby Bare Jr.

Few that we have found can combine humor, pain, and anger in such an effortlessly well-crafted manner as Bobby.

With a big-as-the-room persona, an ability to rock the doors off the most jaded of clubs, the heart to hold a room completely still with just his guitar, and a genius for arrangement, Bobby Bare, Jr. and his band of merry makers are one of the most unique bands around. They are adept at abandoning common sense in favor of laying themselves at the feet of a rambunctious, freewheeling, and unfettered and unhinged muse.

Bobby's music is ample proof that commercial radio wouldn't know a genre-bending smash hit if it ran up and bit it in the ass, and, if radio programmers weren't all neutered corporate lapdogs, his songs would be in the broad canon of rock.
