Seattle-based a cappella group The Bobs will perform at the Spanos Theater on April 18.

The quartet, consisting of Richard Greene, Matthew Stull, Dan Schumacher and Angie Doctor, has been around for more than 20 years and performs almost all original songs and arrangements.

Cal Poly Arts Director Steve Lerian said The Bobs stand out because of their comedic element.

“They’re not only great singers, but also fantastic humorists,” Lerian said. “It makes it a whole different kind of experience.”

In contrast to other a cappella groups, The Bobs approach performance in a more lighthearted, playful manner, Lerian said.

“They’re great vocalists, but these guys tend to not take themselves too seriously because they just like to have fun,” he said. “You would be expecting to have a lot of fun when you attend this show.”

The blend of their sound is unique as well.

“It’s kind of unusual,” he said. “They have three guys and one woman, which adds an interesting element to the vocals.”

The show will hopefully bring in a younger crowd, says Lerian. There are a couple hundred tickets left, and $10 rush tickets will likely sell at the door for students.

Tickets are available online and can be purchased at the door. The show will begin at 8 p.m.
