The Kingsport Office of Cultural Arts and Engage Kingsport are pleased to present The Bobs in concert on their farewell tour.
In addition to the concert, The Bobs will be conducting an outreach session with members of the Dobyns-Bennett High School Acapella Groups.
After more than 35 years together, The Bobs will be stepping away from the microphones. Described as ‘Manhattan Transfer meets Monty Python or Robin Williams meets Bobby McFerrin… J.S. Bach meets Jimi Hendrix’, The Bobs are a quartet of Grammy-nominated vocal acrobats.
This band without instruments has been delivering the classics, breaking all the rules and clear-cutting their own unique path in the world of vocal music for over three decades, playing everywhere from Lincoln Center to Berlin’s Passionskirche.
“Hosting The Bobs and having them meet with some of our acapella students is very exciting,” said Bonnie Macdonald, director for Kingsport’s office of cultural arts. “They are the best at what they do, and this will not only be a great concert, but a learning opportunity as well.”
The Bobs will perform Tuesday, September 12 at 7 p.m. The concert will be held at the DB Little Theatre on the campus of Dobyns-Bennett High School. Prior to the concert, the student outreach session with members of the DB High School Acapella groups will take place from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m.
