Philip Bauer began his entertainment career in 1985 by winning a state wide talent contest in Minnesota. Bauer took 1st place in a field of over 800 contestants at the Minnesota state fair. In 1986 he was asked to perform nightly at the fair with a 40-piece orchestra. This singer /songwriter has had his original songs played on over 300 country music stations all across Europe. Throughout the '90’s Bauer played in bands performing his own music as well as his many impersonations of various artists. This award winning entertainer was a proud member of the Oklahoma Opry Association where he was honored with Male vocalist of the year and Entertainer of the year. Philip considers it a blessing to be able to bring the music and memories of Johnny Cash to all his audiences. His show has taken him all across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, New Zealand and six 26-city tours of Australia.
