Bobby Sherman





Bobby Sherman was born July 22nd, 1943 in Santa Monica, California and learned to play the guitar, piano, trumpet, trombone, French horn and drums while growing up. He performed in high school shows and then went on to college to major in psychology. The show business urge was still in him however and he kept performing on the side until he was noticed by a talent agent. It wasn't long before Bobby was signed to the cast of TV's rock and roll show, Shindig, where he was a regular from 1964 to 1966. He began to write songs and found extra work as a record producer, but couldn't find a hit making formula.

When Shindig was cancelled, Bobby was chosen to star in a new TV series called, Here Come The Brides, which continued his national exposure. Now with the full support of the network, Bobby's next recording effort got more attention than ever. The song was called "Little Woman" and found a place in the bubblegum fad of the day. The song hit #3 in 1969 and was followed by "La La La" (If I Had You) (#9 in 1969), "Easy Come, Easy Go" (#9 in 1970), "Hey Mister Sun" (#24 in 1970) "Julie, Do You Love Me" (#5 in 1970), "Cried Like A Baby" (#16 in 1971) and "The Drum" (#29 in 1971).

After the bubblegum craze had passed, the hits stopped coming. His last effort was called "Together Again", made for a failed 1972 spin-off attempt of The Partridge Family. Following that, Bobby made several guest appearances on TV, including The Monkees, The Love Boat, Emergency, Fantasy Island, Lobo, Murder She Wrote and The Mod Squad. He also appeared in the 1982 movie, Get Crazy.

Bobby settled back and worked occasionally as a producer, director, composer and now and again, a guest star. His autobiography, Bobby Sherman, Remembering You was published in 1996, and he toured the oldies circuit in the late 90's with Micky Dolenz and Peter Noone. Bobby did his last concert as a solo performer in Lincoln, RI on August 25th, 2001, then retired from public life, but still performed at corporate events and charity shows. Bobby went on to become a reserve officer with the L.A. Police Department and an unpaid medical training officer at the L.A. Police Academy.

The first season of Sherman's show Here Come the Brides was released on DVD by Sony Pictures on May 16th, 2006 and Here Come the Brides second season was released on February 28th, 2012
