The Bobs, described by the Seattle Times as "a musical equivalent of a Gary Larson drawing, "use just their voices and body percussion to fill a room with an orchestra of harmonious sound. They have left an indelible mark on vocal music, expertly skewering standards and establishing their own hilarious norms. Once dubbed the only New Wave a cappella group in history, "The Bobs," commented The Washington Post, "prove that the human voice remains the most powerful instrument of all."

Burgers & Brew before the show at 5:30 pm! $15 at the door.

Since they last graced our stage the Good Lovelies went on the Vinyl Café Christmas tour and they took home two Canadian Folk Music Awards for best Vocal Group of the Year and Ensemble of the Year. The aptly named Good Lovelies are Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, all of them best friends who rely on unerring three-part vocal harmonies, clever songs, and convulsively funny repartee on stage.
