Bart Libby resides in South Lake Tahoe with his wife Nancy and son Evan. Bart has been a working musician since his teen years playing in dance bands, orchestras, original recording bands, lounge acts, and traveling Christian music ministries. Previously he served as chief musician for his church, Lake Tahoe Christian Fellowship, for 13 years. When Bart’s family expanded in 1991 with the arrival of Evan, life changed when they learned of his disability. Feeling lost and alone in their Christian life, Bart and his family were blessed to discover the Joni and Friends disability ministry, where they found support and validation for their newly challenged life. Today, in addition to playing worship in his church, continuing to play professionally and serving with Joni and Friends Sacramento, he finds great joy in playing for JAF Family Retreats, JAF Marriage Get Away, and NOW The Dads Band Project, which is a heart-felt expression of how disability has impacted his life and what the Lord has done with it.
