      THE BOBS' AFTER CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY SHOW

      Strikingly similar to THE BOBS' HOLIDAY SHOW, but... later

      FRIDAY, DECEMBER 29 and SATURDAY, DECEMBER 30, 2006 7PM

      THE TRIPLE DOOR, 216 Union Street, Seattle, WA



      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 perform what has become a Seattle tradition - their AFTER
      CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY SHOW at the Triple Door. Celebrating their 25th
      Anniversary of skewering the classics, breaking all the rules and
      clear-cutting their own unique path in the world of vocal music, The
      Bobs have brought their trademark wit and musical malfeasance to
      venues ranging from Lincoln Center to Los Angeles' Universal
      Amphitheater to Berlin's Passionkirche. They recently appeared as
      special guests in Judith Owen & Harry Shearer's Holiday Singalong at
      the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco.



      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. A documentary about the group, SIGN MY SNARLING MOVIE: 25
      YEARS OF THE BOBS, is slated for release and festival appearances in 2007.



      In Seattle, The Bobs will perform selections from their 1997 holiday
      release, Too Many Santas (Rounder Records) as well as new material
      from an upcoming CD. Local musical guests will be sprinkled
      throughout the shows.



      The Bobs' endurance is trumped only by their unrivaled creativity as
      they continue to infect audiences with their humor and musicality. To
      quote a recent review, "At an age when most surviving pop groups grind
      out a living with warmed over retreads of greatest hits, 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. The Capitol Steps are occasionally as funny, and the
      Roches and the Mockingbirds sometimes achieve similar a capella
      excellence."
