    Where were "The Crumbs"? I remember an act with the same name playing on the east coast in the late 1970's.

    I didn't realize he was still around. If you ever get a chance you absolutely must see him & his band perform. I can tell you he has a HUGE following (made up of off work casino employee's and locals) and the crowd makes the show even more fun. I am not sure if his voice is as good as it once was, but if it is, you will be in for a treat.

    This guy & his band are the end of an era of "Vegas Lounge Acts", and it is kind of sad that more casinos don't have them any longer.

    Yea, he did play some college dives in Kenmore Square. We were having dinner at the Canal Street Grill at the Orleans seveal years ago after seeing Bill Medley play( Bobby had already passed).

    We happened to be seated next to Bill's party which included Cook.

    When we left, we quietly told Bill that we enjoyed his show and were sorry for Bobby's passing. While we intended to make the interruption brief Bill jumped up, introduced us to his wife and Cook and thanked us. Cook also stood up and said that he knew our accent and that he had played Boston many times.

    We had a nice conversation whith two nice gentlemen who gave us way more time than we expected.

    I saw him at Bill's casino last summer. It was pretty not great. He was singing solo to a recording. Mostly 70's - 90's stuff. His wig is worth the free admission alone.
