The Bobs – Farewell Tour
October 14 @ 7:30 pm
It all started when Western Onion went bust, leaving all singing telegram deliverers broke and unemployed. Thus began the Great San Francisco Singing Telegram Depression of 1981. Gunnar Madsen and Matthew Stull, two of the newly unemployed, placed a free 25-words-or-less ad in the classifieds for a bass singer. They got one call–from bass singer, songwriter and recording engineer Richard Greene. After six months of rehearsal, the trio debuted at an open mike in a Cuban restaurant. They sang “Psycho Killer,” “A White Sport Coat” and a few others. The audience loved them. The Bobs were born. Thirty five years later, hundreds of concerts and performances notched up, this fall this iconic acappella group goes on tour for the last time. If you’ve never heard them before, listen in tonight. If you’ve been to their concerts, come again, this will be one of your last chances to hear The Bobs. Advance tickets $25, day of show $30.
