The Bobcats is a result of a love for the energy and emotion of rockabilly music. The original four members met when Bob posted an ad on CraigsList in late Summer 2009, hoping to find some musicians who shared his love of rockabilly music to do a side project. Oddly, these initial four members were all named Robert (hence the band's name). The band has worked steadily to expand their song list and refine their sound.
The Bobcats are: Rob Walker (lead vocals), Bob Müller (rhythm guitar, acoustic guitar, backing vocals), John Wachter (lead guitar, backing vocals), Kevin Burke (bass), and Ed Modzel (drums).
