Getting Acqainted with The Bob Boyd Sounds
With the renewal of interest in music of the Swing and Big Band Era, The Bob Boyd Sounds, David Higginbotham, Randy McDonald, Pat Henry and Bob Boyd, are having the time of their lives playing and singing songs from the thirties through the nineties. Word has gotten around that these four guys will knock you out when they play music of the big bands. All four of them sing, solo and in harmony, music from Sinatra, the Four Freshmen and the Modernaires, to Stevie Wonder! They play smooth, listenable jazz, if you can manage to keep your feet still. But when they play, unlike much jazz, in their music you can always recognize the melody!

With their extensive repertoire and diverse backgrounds, the Bob Boyd sounds are also quite adept at presenting themed shows when necessary. The group has performed entire evenings of Dixieland, Cajun, Polka, Mariachi, Italian, Irish, and Western Swing music. Although most of the time they play swing and pop tunes from all eras, the Bob Boyd sounds can tailor their playlist to suit any musical needs!
