2013 Jukebox

Bob and Barbara’s

In a world of Internet-connected jukeboxes, its great to see that this legendary dive has realized the inherent evil of the trend. I hated it! says Bob & Barbaras owner Jack Prince of the new-school play-anything model he acquired a few years back. Prince recently kicked it to the curb, replacing it with a traditional box containing a well-curated selection of R&B, jazz and funk thats appropriate for the space. In other words, youll never ever hear Margaritaville or Piano Man here again.
