Kobanova is a folk rock and alternative music experience created by Jimmy Riemer, Wes Bacastow, and Chris Dickson. The group got their start performing as a jam band in Athens, Georgia, while attending UGA and began writing their own music in 2019. After many years of live performances and several sold-out shows, the trio released their debut self-titled album, Kobanova, in December 2023. The group prides itself on creating a unique experience at every live performance. The current lineup features a seasoned rhythm section: Ripken Walker (Drums) and Owen Eaton (Bass) and frequently expands to include friends and guest performers on horns, backing vocals and keys.
