"Fun, inventive and full of sass and spice.
..The material may be splendidly silly, but
The Bobs are serious about entertaining and
trying to find your ticklish spot.." -
"Virtuosic and funny and ingeniously
arranged..." - Metroland
"The Bobs are an a cappella quartet that
falls outside both traditions. Neither
conventional nor stuffy, they mostly perform
original songs, and they've taken a page from
the Ramones." - Washington Post
"They are simply the template for funny,
witty, superlatively harmonized a cappella
singing with a strong emphasis on a slightly
skewered cynicism that is offset by a deeper
sense of humanism. The Bobs are beyond fun."
- Home Grown Radio
