The Logan Brothers Band, the 2016 and 2015 Glenwood Springs Post Independent's Locals' Choice Favorite Band, is a Glenwood Springs-based classic rock, modern rock, and folk rock cover band. Our characteristic sound comes from outstanding lead vocals, two-part harmony, guitar, melodic bass lines, drums, and harmonica.
The Logan Brothers are Steve Barbee, Jonathan Satz, and Danny Brennan-Combs.
Steve and Jonathan have been playing music together in some form or fashion since 1977. In college, they played at coffee houses, open mics, and occasional talent contests. They took the name The Logan Brothers for their current-day band to honor their past: they met at Utah State University in Logan, Utah, and they are like Brothers (of different mothers), with over 35 years of friendship.
Steve started playing guitar when he was 12 years old and has been singing in choirs since he was 6. Besides playing on and off with Jonathan in and after college, and performing as a solo artist while living in Salt Lake City, he was also a founding member of the popular acoustic duo, Stillwater,and performed as such for 12 years. Jonathan began playing guitar in high school and also sang in choirs since he was 14 years old. He's been singing ever since in community choirs and musical theater. The Logan Brothers is Jonathan's first formal band.
After Steve moved to Glenwood Springs in 2004 (where Jonathan already lived), Jonathan and Steve revived their musical partnership and began playing at local open mics and other venues. After a couple of forays with other musicians, and honing their sound as a duo, they formed The Logan Brothers and played their first gig in September 2012. They have been playing gigs in the area ever since. Steve plays a number of instruments, but with The Logan Brothers he focuses on acoustic and electric guitars and harmonica and sings lead vocals. A goal since high school, but not begun until he turned 50, Jonathan learned electric bass, which he plays for The Logan Brothers. He also sings backup harmonies. The Logan Brothers has been mostly a trio (adding drums) since December of 2014.
