BIO

JUJU EYEBALL is a Beatles cover band formed in 2015 in Bend, OR. The high-energy band is dedicated to bringing the Fab Four’s classic songs back to life--in all their original rock power. The 4 members of the band (2 guitars, keyboards, bass, and drums) all sing lead and harmonies to perfection. They are versatile enough to play beautiful ballads like Something and Yesterday, rock hard on Back in the USSR and Revolution, bring the Summer of Love back to life with Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and A Day in the Life, and get the whole crowd up and dancing to the early hits like She Loves You and Can’t Buy Me Love.

With over 60 songs in their repertoire JUJU EYEBALL can jump between the #1 hits that everyone knows and deep cuts for the true Beatles nerds. Their fun banter and exuberant stage show has made them a huge favorite in Bend and elsewhere. They are a true “all-ages” band with retirees, children and their parents, millennials, teenagers, all sharing the dance floor and singing along at the top of their lungs.

The summer of 2019 has them playing large festivals like Munch & Music, The Bite of Bend, Music on the Green, as well as venues like the Tower Theater, Spoken Moto, Silver Moon Brewing, Crux Fermentation Project, Worthy Brewing, McMenamins Old St. Francis School, Immersion Brewing, and others.

Originally formed as a 3-piece in 2015, founding members DAN LARSSON (bass) and KARL LINDGREN (drums) decided to carry on with the band after their guitarist left in 2018. They recruited ANDY JACOBS (lead guitar) and PETE FICHT (rhythm guitar, keyboards) to fill out the band. With the addition of a second guitar and keyboards, the band were able to shift from their looser earlier feel to a more authentic sound that's truer to the original arrangements.

Having four strong lead singers really adds to the excitement. DAN delivers the McCartney screamers like Oh! Darling and Helter Skelter with great aplomb and KARL sings the Ringo songs, of course--but also comes to the front of the stage to sweetly croon Yesterday. PETE mostly handles George and John songs like Here Comes the Sun and Come Together in true adenoidal Liverpudlian fashion, while ANDY pulls from everyone, tenderly singing In My Life and belting out I Want to Hold Your Hand. And they all come together on mind-blowing 3 and 4-part harmonies on songs like Nowhere Man and Paperback Writer.

All top-notch instrumentalists, they truly bring the songs to life, like when ANDY melts faces in While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and KARL bangs out the drum solo in The End, and PETE pounds the keys on Hey Jude, and DAN nails the intricate and funky bass lines on I Want You (She’s So Heavy).

JUJU EYEBALL always delivers a crowd-pleasing show. When they break into Twist and Shout, the dance floor instantly fills up as the happy crowd dances and sings with wild abandon. The band plans to continue playing festivals, events, clubs, and corporate events throughout Central Oregon and beyond.

Pete is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, starting out in New Orleans with the popular folk-punk band House Levelers in the early 90s. He moved to Oregon in 1995 and has released half a dozen albums with various bands, including Portland’s King Black Acid and Wild Bells.

Andy Jacobs
(lead guitar)

Andy is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has been a part of countless music projects around the Bend music scene over the past 20 years.  He is a founding member of Goodbye Dyna, Subliminal, Blame Amy, Sons of Dirt, and Thought Police - all of which have released albums. Currently, he fronts the band Goodbye Dyna, plays drums for The Color Study, and plays lead guitar in Wild Bells. He also is a music instructor with the local organization, MusicFlow.

Dan.png

Dan Larsson (bass) 
Covering two ends of the sonic spectrum, Dan rocks the low end for Juju and also sings the high vocals in that famous Beatles stratosphere. Oh, Darling! A veteran of pro bands for years, including stints with New York-based rockers Balance, Dan Larsson is a necessary ingredient in the JuJu soufflé. He currently also plays bass in Wild Bells.

Karl.png

Karl Lindgren (drums) 
Everybody sings in JuJu! But not only does he sing, Karl's also one of the busiest percussionists in the local area (Derek Michael Marc, Bobby Lindstrom, and the COCC Big Band to name a few). Why? Because he throws down a serious groove that makes people want to move their bodies. We like that.
