About
Versatile, professional, original, and uniquely entertaining – audiences in the Florida Keys have kept John Bartus one of the busiest and most booked musicians since his arrival in the islands in 1984. Whether it's with his band Storm Watch, or his solo acoustic act that redefines what a one-man band can be, John has performed for events large, small, and everything in between. From sharing the stage with acts like Kansas, 38 Special, Rick Derringer, Edgar Winter, and Clarence Clemons, to the most intimate of acoustic performances, John Bartus makes each performance something to remember. In addition to being one of the Florida Keys' best-known singer/songwriters, John has a repertoire of over 1,000 songs ranging from Jimmy Buffett to Elton John to Pink Floyd. John is an accomplished singer, guitarist, and pianist, with a little harmonica added for good measure. His solo act features some real cool looping and harmony technologies that allow him to perform challenging material like Pink Floyd and CSN, all live and in real time with no pre-recorded material or "invisible computer musicians." From a solo act to a four-piece classic rock band, John can tailor the entertainment specifically for your event, whether it's club, concert, festival, corporate, or wedding. John also has all the sound equipment needed to cover everything from small clubs to large outdoor events. Find out why John Bartus remains in constant demand as a 30-year full-time professional musician and entertainer by hiring him for your next event.
