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.
