Manhattan Transfer meets Monty Python...Robin Williams meets Bobby McFerrin...J.S. Bach meets Jimi Hendrix: Grammy-nominated vocal acrobats (and
certifiable nutjobs) THE BOBS return to the Towne Crier!
This original "band without instruments" has been skewering the classics, breaking all the rules and clear-cutting their own unique path in the world of vocal music for over 25 years, playing everywhere from Lincoln Center to Berlin's Passionkirche. To quote one reviewer, "...the Bobs still shine, breaking new ground each time they tunnel out of the sanitorium. The twin keys to the group's creative safe deposit box are unflagging dedication to vocal excellence and utter disregard for everything else."
Together since 1981, the original "band without instruments" has released 13 albums and several concert DVDs including the recent Rhapsody In Bob, which truly showcases The Bobs' trademark audacity in vocal arranging. The last cut, Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" features The Bobs as a Vocal Orchestra, accompanied by guest pianist Bob Malone.
