Jozef Bobula

Sammi George

     Jozef Bobula snaps, he crackles, he pops across the stage like a man possessed.  And he is possessed—by the heart of the bass.

     Originally from Prievidza, Slovakia, at 20 years old, Jozef picked up a bass and taught himself to play. Soon after, Jozef attended Pink Jazz Festival in Dallas and Los Angeles, and two years later, he was enrolled in the jazz music program at Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth.

     While at Wesleyan, Jozef  performed studio work, restaurant gigs, weddings, musicals, concerts, and even events like the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah.  In April 2003, he received the Outstanding Solo Performance Award at the UNT Addison Jazz Festival.  Also in 2003, he released his debut solo album “Letters from the Virtual Universe.”  In 2001, Jozef joined the nationally-recognized Christian pop/rock group “Destination Known” with whom he went on to record three albums. In 2007, Jozef earned a Master of Arts in Music Performance from UT Arlington and moved to Las Vegas, where he now resides.

      Since 2013, Jozef has been featured nightly as the Musical Director of the critically-acclaimed six-piece band that plays live onstage behind Playboy Playmate of the Year 2011 Clair Sinclair in Pin Up, at the Stratosphere Hotel & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

     Jozef also occasionally performs in Las Vegas with Pop Evolution, Zowie Bowie, Legends in Concert show, The Australian Bee Gees Show, as well as with his own jazz trio – The Jozef Bobula Trio

     "My experience with the Conklin company has always been outstanding. From their quick replies to any of my questions, they took my drawings and transformed them into beautiful pieces of art.  All three basses were made exactly as I designed and to this day they attract people when I play them for their look and sound…Not to mention how much I enjoy Conklin strings too…I have never seen tapered bass strings up to D string before. I play Snakeskins and I love them! Thank You guys!!! ”
