For almost 3 decades, The Bobkatz have enjoyed incredible success in the Australian Country Music scene.
Releasing eigth albums, twnetyone singles (including two national Number #1's), twenty music videos and 3 Golden Guitar Finalist Nominations. Not too mention winning “Heritage Song of the Year” & “Group or Duo of the Year” at the Southern Stars Australian 2015 Independent Music Awards and countless TSA (Tamworth songwriter Awards).
Maintaining their consistency of 'real songs”, strong use of harmonies and that 'out on the veranda' organic country sound, The Bobkatz have built a steady and faithful following of “story song fans” with current worldwide plays and streams totaling 20,000 + per month.
Sadly, founding member, songwriter and lead vocalist/bassist Garry Koehler passed away in October 2019 after a 3 year battle with cancer.
Tribute shows to Garry at Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2020 performed by The Bobkatz, with Garry’s daughter Sarah on lead vocals, were extremely popular and after careful thought The Bobkatz decided to continue with Sarah upfront performing her father's wonderful songs.
The album “The Truth Is” recorded in 2021 contains songs recorded by Garry & Rob, prior to Garry’s passing, as well as some new material and a couple of old favorites, reimagined and performed by Sarah.
Sarah & Rob will continue to perform as The Bobkatz carrying forward Garry's truly wonderful songs with performances at Tamworth, The Gympie Music Muster & many house concerts throughout southeast QLD.
The new album "Keeping it Real" is complete and out now containing 13 newly recorded Bobkatz tracks. Rob & Sarah are "over the Moon" about this recording. They say it beautifully reflects The Bobkatz today and in yesteryear. Garry has written or co written most of the songs with Allan Caswell co writing 4 songs including one with Rob.
It's not only a beautiful collection of amazing songs, but also a further tribute to Rob’s best mate & Sarah’s Dad, Garry Koehler, in music, word & picture.
