"We are so very lucky to have Bob as a regular...
at the Shakers Bar and Grill and Pho Cao open-mics. Every time he takes the stage he elevates the proceedings. I'm not worthy."
– Lewis Ray Cammarata (Performing Musician and Open Mic Host at Shakers and Pho Cao)

Bob's latest CD, "Now & Then."
"Bob McCarroll’s album is the dream ticket for anyone running a restaurant in a well-populated tourist area. His swing jazz sound is literally so ‘nice’ I don’t think it could rock the boat any more than a mouse might if it were stowed away on the QE2. While the tracks are perfectly well recorded, and Bob’s vocals emulate the very best of Bublé-style swing jazz vocals, there just isn’t the energy that I’d like to hear in an album like this to take it to the next level. At times, I felt as if it had been recorded so quietly that at any moment you might hear the producer turning the page of a newspaper as he waited for the session to end..."
