"EVER YOU": for my family who recently lost my cousin, James Michael Conway at the early age of 58.

And to all the families who recently lost loved ones in Las Vegas, and Hurricanes Irma & Maria.

After months of work, I was finishing recording this new song as these events occurred.

-Bruce Kerr

STEREO AUDIO ORIGINAL mp3

"I MET MY SWEETIE ON TAHITI" is an original song & recording by "Loose Bruce" Kerr. It's an homage to his parents who taught him his first instrument (ukelele, by his Dad, Ken), songs from their youth in the 1920's (Ken & Opal, both), and, re his Dad's love for both dixieland jazz and barbershop quartet which he passed on to Bruce. This is Bruce playing out his Tin Pan Alley songwriter wish.

Bruce sings each harmony and plays each instrument one at a time (a digital unit allows him to affect horns & strings he can't play). It's a 1-man band (across time). ;)

Bruce took 20 years off from his legal career to write & perform music, sometimes solo, sometimes in a duo or the band, "Spud City-Music With a Peel" (Mass., VT) with his hometown buddy, Steve Hoeft. As a solo, he opened for "Weird Al" Yankovic. Then he resumed being an attorney, now working for Oracle in Northern California's Silicon Valley.

Bruce dedicates this song to his cousin, Jim Conway, who moved to the South Pacific island of Tuvalu and eventually met his sweetie, Nese Ituaso, and married her up real good.

"THE BATTLE OF FLORIDA (2000)" was parodist Loose Bruce Kerr's real-time telling of Bush v Gore during that election year, where it all came down to recounts in Florida, including "chads." It is to the tune of "The Battle of New Orleans" by Johnny Horton.

The song was featured on NPR's "All Things Considered" on election coverage.

Loose Bruce Kerr took 20 years off his legal career to write, record, and perform music across the country and the Caribbean. He's resumed his day career and works at Oracle in Silicon Valley. Before Oracle, Bruce was Assistant General Counsel at Sun Microsystems.

Bruce records his original songs and parodies, multi-tracking 1 vocal and 1 instrument at a time in his garage in Morgan Hill, CA. He is originally from Waukesha, Wisconsin, home of Les Paul who invented multi-track recording.

Besides this podcast of Bruce's originals and parodies, both videos & audio mp3's (all for free), you can search on youtube.com for many others, including records he recorded with his college band in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the 5 Bucks (became the Byzantine Empire).

“YOU CAME FROM WAUKESHA”
by Loose Bruce Kerr
 
1. If you wanted water pure
Or a grand resort to tour
YOU CAME TO WAUKESHA
For a motor running true
Or a generator new
YOU CAME TO WAUKESHA
 
Want a hazy, lazy river
Or somebody to deliver
      all your dairy and a paper to your door?
You could do worse by far
Than turning ‘round your car
And instead YOU CAME TO WAUKESHA
 
2. For the yellows, reds and greens
Of the Kettle Morraine scenes
YOU CAME TO WAUKESHA
Best in sports and all the schools
The best neighborhoods and pools
YOU CAME TO WAUKESHA
 
Ask any stranger on the street
‘twas the path to really beat
If you just follow your feet
      you end up there
For a job or Carroll College
If you had or needed knowledge
Then at last, YOU CAME TO WAUKESHA
 
3. If you had your head on straight
Had the finest girls to date
YOU CAME FROM WAUKESHA
If your parents loved you so
And were sad to let you go
YOU LEFT FROM WAUKESHA
 
Need some help from helping hands
Or some kickass local bands
      or some Jimmy’s, Scrima’s, Rode’s, Schley’s and more
Take a mudbath or decline
Know...the...name...of..."Reiney Hein”*
Then it’s your hometown and mine
YOU CAME FROM WAUKESHA
 
(*R.G. Hein, Waukesha Superintendant of Schools, circa 1950’s-60’s, with apologies to our CMH compatriots)
