Bob Log III is an American slide guitarist and one-man band. During performances, he plays old Silvertone Archtop guitars, wears a full body cannonball man suit, and a helmet wired to a telephone which allows him to devote his hands and feet to his guitars and drums. The spectacle has been described as a guitar dance party, full of sweaty smiles, jumps, and kicks. Touring over 150 shows a year in more than 30 countries, Log and his guitar never, ever quit. Bob Log’s version of quick Delta blues is a continuation the sound that Bob Log and Thermos pioneered in the duo, Doo Rag. The major differences are: greater emphasis on guitar showmanship, and drumming -one-man band style-with his feet. It sounds like three drummers, two guitar players, and one sort-of singer.
Bob Log III will be returning to Portland for a show at Dante’s, 350 W Burnside, on Wednesday, May 9 at 9:00 pm. Tickets for this 21 & over show are $12.00 advance at Ticketweb.com.
