SIGN MY SNARLING MOVIE chronicles the history of The Bobs, "The
Beatles of the A Cappella World," from their humble origins at the
Western Onion Singing Telegram Company in San Francisco. The band
evolves as they gain an audience, get nominated for a Grammy, tour the
world, and manage to thrive for 25 years with no major label support,
no hit records, and no instruments. Featuring clips from The Bobs'
25th Anniversary Reunion Concerts in Berkeley, California in 2006, the
DVD also features 45 minutes of bonus tracks not included in the
theatrical version. To see a trailer for the movie, go to:
