  • HOLD ME NOW - Loose Bruce Kerr original

    HOLD ME NOW - Loose Bruce Kerr original

    18/07/2020 Duración: 02min

    "HOLD ME NOW" is a new song by Loose Bruce Kerr. While Bruce often does parodies, he also writes originals in various styles. This one's in the mold of old Sinatra or Andy Williams standards. Using multi-tracking (invented by his fellow townie of Waukesha, Wisconsin, Les Paul), Bruce adds horns, strings, drums, etc.  by synth and plays the guitars, bass, and sings the vocals. Bruce lives with his wife, Linda, in northern California heading up toward Lake Tahoe, oh, and 2 cats (not in the yard, mostly in the house...hot!) Back in the day, he opened for "Weird Al" Yankovic, and has been played over 100 times on the Dr. Demento Show. He's an attorney and works at Oracle. (well, now from his home).

    11/05/2020 Duración: 02min

    "HEAD FOR THE HILLS" is Loose Bruce Kerr's latest song, a post-pandemic one and an original that takes its flavor from the 1920's songs his parents taught him growing up in Wisconsin. Bruce plays the uke he learned on and inherited from his father, Ken (a Martin uke). His mother sang 20's & 30's songs while cooking and his dad played uke and whistled (he wouldn't sing!). Enjoy!

    "GORBY" (audio mp3) by Loose Bruce Kerr (1990)

    09/05/2020 Duración: 01min

    "GORBY" (audio mp3) is Loose Bruce Kerr's original satire/parody from 1990 on the occasion of the about-to-disintegrate Soviet Union's premier's visit to Stanford U in California's Bay Area. Bruce lived 8 mins away so it was only logical he drove there with his guitar & tape deck around his neck playing his pre-recorded background tracks, mounted CNN's 2 story scaffold where they were beaming live to Atlanta, and sang this song about Gorby, which was then nationally broadcast at the end of the 8pm segment that evening. On the 30th anniversary of the then-thawing relationship between the US the Soviet Union's Mikhail Gorbachev, Bruce wrote and recorded this song on his 4-track TEAC cassette deck, then sang and played it live at his gigs with the background tracks added behind him. Loose Bruce Kerr is from Waukesha, Wisconsin, home to multitrack & guitar inventor, Les Paul, and now lives in northern California.

Bruce uses multitracking to provide all his desired instruments & vocals, a process invented by Bruce's hometown influence, Les Paul, Waukesha, Wisconsin. In this recording, Bruce layered a 16 voice chorus plus lead vocal over orchestration of guitar, multiple bass viols, cellos, violins, french horns, flute, oboe, snare, timpani, & cymbals. The orchestral instruments were done by Bruce on keyboard midi'd into a Yamaha rack synth. His main instrument is a decades-old Wechter (Made in USA...Michigan) acoustic guitar, double-cutaway.

    01/05/2019 Duración: 01min

    "4+20" by Loose Bruce Kerr is an AUDIO MP3 parody of Stephen Stills' song, "4+20" from 1969. It's about April 20th each year at 4:20pm when pot lovers everywhere celebrate, well, pot! Together. Or alone. Whatever. Who's counting (...except on the calendar & clock). Instead of Stills' dark picture of despair, the parody flips it to celebrating 4/20. At 4:20pm. You get the picture. Or had it decades ago.  Whether I still smoke pot or not is private, this song’s title begged for a parody of it. However, I will say I first tried pot the same year Bill Clinton did. But I definitely inhaled. Earbuds encouraged.

This is how our rock road band in New England in 1978 opened our shows. For this concert, we played about 12 original songs after this opener. Big stage for us since most of our 4-5 gigs a week those years were clubs, college pubs, bars, ski lodges. But once in a while, a concert like this one came along where, instead of 4 x 45 min. sets including covers, we did an all-original show of songs written by "Loose Bruce" Kerr. We had a band house in rural northern Massachusetts up on the New Hampshire border, about an hour out of Boston. In those days, around 3 to 5pm, 4-5 times a week, 3 cars loaded with gear would launch down that 1/4 mile driveway (if snow allowed) to drive an hour to 4 hours away in Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut or Mass. In the big snowstorm of '78, we were snowed in at that house for a week, lost a lot of

    "THE GIRLYMAN," parody by Loose Bruce Kerr (2004)

    10/03/2019 Duración: 01min

    "THE GIRLYMAN," (AUDIO) by Loose Bruce Kerr (2004) is a parody of "The Candyman" as sung by Sammy Davis Jr. in 1972. The parody transforms the positive Candyman who made the world glow with candy into the negative budget opponents in the California State Legislature of new California Governor in 2004, Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Governor dubbed them, "Girliemen" in reference to a famous bit at the time on Saturday Night Live where "Hans & Franz" (actors, Dana Carvey & Kevin Nealon, respectively) performed a send-up of former body builder Schwarzenegger, using Austrian accents to put down male weaklings who didn't train, as "girlymen." In the song, the singer Schwarzenegger puts down those legislators, including at the time, Darryl Steinberg, current Sacramento mayor, as such girlymen for opposing his budget plans. Loose Bruce Kerr (nationally: Dr. Demento Show, Jim Bohannon Show, CNN & other network segments using his parodies related to current news stories) recorded each vocal and instrument one

    "THE RALPH AND BOOF SONG" by Loose Bruce Kerr (Audio mp3)

    30/09/2018 Duración: 01min

    Here's Loose Bruce Kerr's latest song parody, to the tune of the 1909 Yale University song, "The Whiffenpoof Song." It is, of course, about the current Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, and his recent U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee appearance wherein he nearly waxed poetic about his love of beer from his high school days on. Some of his Yale acquaintances are saying that love was over the top. The Yale drinking song here becomes a vehicle for Kavanaugh and his buddies to fondly look back when that drinking included ralphing (you know) and boofing (you may not know: it's consumption of alcohol or whatever "on the back end"). Bruce Kerr is an attorney working at Oracle in Rocklin, California. He was Assistant General Counsel at Sun Microsystems and before that, had a 20 year career writing & performing music across the country and Caribbean. His songs have been heard over 100 times on the Doctor Demento Show. He's also heard on the Jim Bohannon Show on radio and internet. He now lives in Roseville, C
