Etter noen år som musiker i Las Vegas, flyttet han til Los Angeles og har medvirket med Art Pepper, Bud Shank, Horace Silver Quintet, Frank Strazzeri-Sam Most, samt storband som Bill Holman, Louie Bellson, Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin, Oliver Nelson, Bill Berry, Nat Pierce-Frank Capp Juggernaut, Ed Shaughnessy, Terry Gibbs, Benny Goodman, Maynard Ferguson, Neal Hefti, Don Menza, og Bob Florence. For mange er innspillingen ”Music of Pat Metheny & Lyle Mays” fra 1994, hvor Bobby er en fremtredende solist med The LA Big Band, et av mange høydepunkter. Bobby Shew har i tillegg lansert mange innspillinger over hele verden i eget navn og med ulike samarbeidspartnere, f eks med trompeteren Jan Allan fra Sverige og med trombonisten Carl Fontana.
