Nenad Bach Band at Croton Free Library, 24th March, 7.30pm


Through his evocative and singular brand of music Nenad Bach calls back the ethos of the ‘60s. He believes, and expresses through his original music, that the human family can connect to repair our troubled world of war, injustice and economic woe.

Nenad Bach and his band of four like-minded musicians appearing at the Croton Free Library perform substantive songs, infused with droll wit. As a recording artist and performer, two of Nenad’s albums reached number-one in Europe, and to date he has sold over one million records.

He has performed all over the world with a wide range of artists, including Luciano Pavarotti; Bono and The Edge; Indigo Girls; Richie Havens; Vince Welnick, and many more.

Nenad Bach (lead vocal, piano, acoustic guitar) is joined on stage by Joe DeSanctis (keyboards, melodica); Richard Lindsey (bass); Michael O’Keefe (drums); Al Orlo, (guitar).

Nenad Bach Band Conquers Hanks Saloon


The Nenad Bach Band's debut performance at Hanks Saloon on 18 February 2012 was a fantastic success. There was great feedback from members of the audience.

Firstly, we wish to share a few photos sent in by Merlin.

It is also our pleasure to share wonderful comments by Vera Fabris who was one of the appreciative people who watched the show.

Hank’s Saloon in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. A neighborhood with the mind of it’s own, with a relatively small, but powerful gem hiding in it. Nenad Bach and his band fit right in, adjusted to the environment; their music promoting the mystique in an undeniably invigorating way. One could not avoid but to ask oneself - did the audience know that the song ‘Vukovar’, about a Croatian town that became a symbol of senseless destruction, was brought to Brooklyn by Mr. Bach and his band in the form of a phoenix, raising from the ashes, only to blend in…It seemed as the rhythm of it, as well as of the other songs, was becoming faster and faster, and it’s texture grew stronger. The atmosphere was becoming more uplifting and optimistic, as the other songs were. The emotion was paradoxically heavy and light at the same time, always meaningful, positive, and elegant. It could have been that, in such an environment, it almost became compatible, in it’s greatness, with a timeless, black and white, John Wayne’s photo hanging on the wall. Nenad Bach and his band conquered Hank’s Saloon with such a certainty that comes only in some chosen times.
