Link to some songs from the new musical FAMILY MUSIC


I pulled down the videos that were here recently for the new show, since so many people were saying they were unable to access them for some reason.

But I'm hoping this link will work - here are more songs from the newest show I'm working on called FAMILY MUSIC.

It's more serious than a lot of material I usually work on.  

The show takes place on Long Island about ten years ago, and it's about the impact of the war on a family that runs a music business, when the younger son comes home wounded.  I co-wrote the show with the very gifted Marian Hannah Weiner.

In honor of that Brooklyn horse and the "Brooklyn Boyz" stable winning the Kentucky Derby


In honor of that Brooklyn horse and the "Brooklyn Boyz" stable winning the Kentucky Derby

Here is our opinionated song about loving Brooklyn (from a so-far-unproduced show, so the opinions are the character's, not the writer's!)

BROOKLYN BOY - the original Coney Island version

and the alternate "Modern Brooklyn" version of the video


Hope you like this slightly tongue-in-cheek salute!

in the spirit of the fan who fainted at "Hello Dolly" the other night, but told the paramedics "I'd sooner die than miss Act 2!"
