Celebrated guitarist, composer and bandleader Bob DeVos has enjoyed over 50 years as an in-demand player.
With long, blues-drenched melodic lines and a horn-like approach, he has a signature style of groove and
sophistication. From solo to big band, Bob is a modern player with strong traditional roots, equally at home with
straight-ahead jazz, blues, Rhythm & Blues, funk, Latin and more. A master with a full, warm sound, Bob came
up touring and recording with the giants of organ jazz–Trudy Pitts, Richard “Groove” Holmes & Sonny Stitt,
Jimmy McGriff & Hank Crawford, and Charles “The Mighty Burner” Earland. Bob has gone on to perform with a
Who’s Who in and out of the organ genre. DeVos returns to Scranton with his playing & recording trio featuring
masters Dan Kostelnik on organ and Steve Johns on drums. DeVos’ CDs as a leader for HighNote/Savant and
other labels earn rave reviews, are consistently in the top five on the JazzWeek Chart and on many yearly top
CDs lists. A Brilliant, Knowing Bebop Player – A Living Jazz Legend” – All About Jazz
