Johnny Bob is a NeoProgRock band from Kiel and Hamburg. The group’s style is based on genre idols such as Genesis (70-78), Camel, Yes, King Crimson and Marillion. The debut album "Carnival of the Brahma-Sox" was released in 2017 and has ensured initial success. The second album "Fjodor and the Water Giant" followed in April 2019 and Johnny Bob were showered with praise from the ProgRock scene. The 4-track EP "Hunted by a Caproid" was released in January 2020.
The brothers Jörg Purfürst (bass, keyboards, guitar) and Carsten Díaz (voice, guitar) form the core of the band. Line-up is completed by Philip Mestwerdt (drums), Jan Brust (guitar, keyboards) and Jürgen Ufer (guitar). The songs are mostly bizarre stories, told / performed by Díaz, who tends to roguery by tirelessly altering the history of the band in interviews and on stage, so that truth and fiction merge here.
Was sind die Ziele und wer ist die Zielgruppe?
Progrock fans of the world united with a strong affection to Marillion, Genesis (70-78), Yes, Camel, King Crimson, van der Graaf Generator.
