      The web cast was great. I was running a little late, so I didn't see the beginning, so was sorry to see Bob in the chair, although I'm glad they didn't belabor whatever put him there. I was also shocked that there was no encore. I'd taken my teens to experience the Bobs at Freight and Salvage a couple years ago and they loved the whole thing, so I was sad that the audience was so lukewarm by comparison.

      Very enjoyable and convenient, though the sound level was a little low.

Amazing vocal acrobats, The Bobs – Matthew Bob Stull, Richard Bob Greene, Dan Bob Schumacher, and Angie Bob Doctor – serve up unforgettable performances, outrageous covers of classic songs, and wonderful, witty originals. In shows that are part theater, part comedy, and part performance art, this a cappella "band without instruments" uses voices and body percussion to make music that is hilarious, inspiring, and often beautiful. If you haven’t seen them before, think Manhattan Transfer meets Monty Python. Or imagine Jimi Hendrix and George Gershwin jamming with Karl and Groucho Marx.

Formed in the Bay Area in 1981, The Bobs have played everywhere from Lincoln Center to Berlin's Passionkirche, earned four Grammy nominations, and won just about every a cappella award there is to win. They’ve recorded 15 albums, including Songs at Any Speed and Get Your Monkey Off My Dog, and a DVD, Sign my Snarling Movie: 25 Years of The Bobs, which includes extensive footage of performances at the Freight.

To say that The Bobs have a good sense of humor is a little like saying that LeBron James has a decent move to the hoop. The funny thing is, they’re brilliant musicians – who just happen to be certifiable. In the words of comic Paul Provenza, "Some performers are brilliant comedians, some are genius musicians, and some just make you happy to be alive. The Bobs are all of that – and then some."
