The Wabi Sabis finding the beauty in imperfection, one note at a time.

Based in Panama City, FL, The Wabi Sabis are an all female Americana pop band. Performing songs from as early as the 1920s to those you hear on the radio today, they bring their own unique style to everything they do. What started as a quickly put together band for a local fundraiser in 2017 has turned into a performing group that is like The Wailin' Jennys, The Bangles, and The Avett Brothers all rolled into one.

With Julie Bullock on bass, Denise Denaro on percussion, Jennifer Rollins on guitar, and Valerie Woods on mandolin and ukulele, these women blend their voices in harmonies that weave their way into your heart. You can catch them at many of the local venues and festivals in Panama City, but they have also started traveling to other nearby cities and states, spreading the philosopy of "Wabi Sabi" to new fans. When The Wabi Sabis are in the house, you are guaranteed to tap your toes, clap your hands, and smile until your cheeks hurt!

What does "Wabi Sabi" mean?

From the Japanese, "Wabi Sabi" is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete." Learning to accept and embrace the imperfections, and finding the beauty in them, is our band's philosophy.
