About
Bob Skon is a singer, guitarist, and award winning songwriter. He is best described in the Singer / Songwriter style, with a healthy dose of Acoustic Rock, and touch of Jazz. His original songs deliver sweet, lively melodies wrapped around intelligent, well crafted lyrics. His repertoire includes cover songs from Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Elvis (Presley and Costello), Lyle Lovett, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, The Band, and more.

Bob's services come with a professional sound system. The volume is always kept at a comfortable level for your guest to hear the music and easily hold a conversation.

Testimonials:

"We had Bob perform at our wine and food festival in downtown Detroit which saw about 1,600 people and he did amazing! He never stopped singing and his covers were classics that provided a great mood for the event. Would definitely recommend booking Bob for any of your events, large or small."
Abby Hayes - Detroit Free Press Wine and Food Experience

“We've hosted and co-hosted living room concerts since 2011. It's a warm, intimate way to experience live music. We loved co-hosting Bob Skon. His acoustic music is a perfect fit for an in-home concert. You can get up close, listen to the lyrics and hear Bob tell stories about what inspired his song writing. He's also such a pleasure to work with. He's responsive and professional, showed up when he said he would and put on a well-thought-out show. Everything about the experience was a delight.” - Colleen Newvine Tebeau and John Tebeau, Brooklyn NY

“We heard Bob Skon playing at the Farmer's Market one day and were instantly drawn to his music (a mix or both classic hits from artists like Paul Simon, James Taylor, Elvis Costello, etc… along with his great original songs). We asked him if he played private events, and hired him for a party at our house. He is AMAZING!! His music really took our party to the next level. Not only is he a talented musician and a wonderful guy, he is very professional and rises to the challenge. It was in the upper 90's the summer afternoon he played at our outdoor party and nothing stopped him from rock'n down the house! After hearing him play at our party, our friends have hired him for their events too.” - Michelle Segar and Jeff Horowitz, Ann Arbor, MI

"We have hired Bob to play at Labor Day picnics for incoming graduate students the past two Labor Days. He has been fantastic, creating a festive atmosphere without dominating the proceedings." Paul Resnick and Caroline Richardson, Ann Arbor, MI

Bob's skill and approach is perfect for our venue. We asked for live dinner music from 7-9, at a volume level that is loud enough to hear and enjoy, but not so loud that our customers can't have a conversation during dinner. After having Bob perform, we received a lot of positive feedback that it was perfect. Great music at a perfect volume. As long as Bob is willing, we plan to have him perform at our restaurant at least once a month.
