The Bobs – Final Appearance Ever
May 28, 2017
6 p.m. & 9 p.m. | $20 | 21+

The Triple Door
216 Union St, Seattle, WA 98101

It’s been a 35 year enjoyable and successful run with The Bobs, thousands of live shows, hundreds of original songs, and some 16 albums recorded. My thanks and appreciation to all the members of the various iterations of the group: Gunnar, Matthew, Janie, Joe, Lori, Amy, Dan and Angie. My enormous thanks also to all the folks who have come to our concerts and purchased our recorded music.

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.

    I listened to the Bob’s when I was in labor with my son who is nearly 30 years old. So every time I hear them sing I remember the day my son was born. Would be so special to hear the last concert

    My dad took my family to see The Bobs at the Triple Door for the holiday sing-along they performed with Harry Shearer years ago. He has always been a fan of The Bobs, and the show was absolutely fantastic. Throughout the years, my dad has tried to get the family together to go see then again for our annual family Christmas outings whenever The Bobs are in town, but for one reason or another we’ve never able to make it work and haven’t seen them since. I would love to surprise my dad with tickets to their final show.

    They “Really Got A Hold On Me”! I’ve been a fan since they burst on the scene years ago. It’d be great to give them a proper sendoff.
