Wishing everyone great health and great love.
The month of May 2022 has several concerts and Keyboard University Music Styling seminars. Sharing the gifts of music has been such a great blessing in my life.
My life has been blessed in so many ways. I had the great honor of sharing the stage with so many unbelievably talented musicians and performers. In the organ world as a young teenager I first performed, in many cases, walk- in music before the headliner star played. Before the year was over I now was their guest performer. Some of those stars were Ethel Smith, Eddie Layton, Mildred Alexander, Porter Heaps, Rosa Rio and Lenny Dee. All of those great musicians shared many of their styling secrets with me so when we played duets I knew the best way to accompany them. Those were the days before the Lowrey Organs.
I first met Lenny Dee in 1957 and we became lifelong friends. One of my many blessings were the many concerts and shows we did.
Two absolutely wonderfully talented stars of Lowrey and the home organ industry are Mr. Bil Curry and Mr. Paul Shaub. Both Bil and Paul have the fabulous gift of performing good clean comedy! One time when we were together in Las Vegas we posed for a Three Stooges picture and here it is.
Paul Shaub and I loved the comedy routines of Abbott and Costello and years ago we started doing several of their routines and Who’s On First can be seen here and Paul and I hope you really enjoy it!! There are some other pictures of Paul at the studio of one of his many video production performances. Bil Curry is the true genius of Lowrey. He has created more orchestrations, presets and exclusive features than anyone else. Bil is a super wonderful giving person and so is Paul Shaub and I’m truly blessed having Bil and Paul as friends.
One of my favorite Bil Curry routines is entitled Guitarzan and its here for you to enjoy!
Magic has been a hobby of mine since my early teens.
Another wonderful friend of mine is Rob Labby who is a master magician and a Hollywood Legend W.C. Fields impersonator. On my DVD special Concerts of Concerts Rob Labby appeared as W.C. Fields. Great Memories!!!
My best to you always,

One of my greatest memories was having the great honor, privilege, and blessings of appearing on several of the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethons along with many fund raising events. Jerry Lewis was a totally dedicated wonderful performer. I had the honor of accompanying Jerry on a great old Al Jolson song, “Rock-A- Bye Your Baby With A Dixie Melody.” Great Memories!

I promised last month to have some wonderful video’s for you to see and they are all here in my new “ Thanks For The Memories “ section. This section is dedicated to all the wonderful people, audiences and performers that has so blessed my life.
Paul Shaub and I have known each other for over 40 years. Not only has Paul been a Lowrey concert organist he has created and written many of Lowrey’s best owners manuals! Paul is known for his great sense of comedy and many of his fantastic musical medleys. The Paul Shaub video segment showcases Paul in the Abbott and Costello comedy sketch of Who’s On First and then performs his musical tribute to America’s Armed Forces. Enjoy!
Bil Curry is truly a musical genius. Not only is he a magnificent keyboard artist his knowledge of all, and I do mean All, of America’s musical styles is unbelievably amazing. his knowledge and ability to duplicate those musical styles for all of us to play on our Lowrey instruments phenomenal. And what is truly amazing is that all of the musical styles he has created,
never, has one of his orchestral accompaniments made a mistake. Never!
Bil Curry is the living genius of Lowrey . I am truly blessed to be able to call Bil Curry a true friend. Like Paul Shaub Bil loves comedy. This fabulous routine is a true Bil Curry classic.
For your Christmas holidays I’ve included 3 special Christmas music videos.
I made two Christmas DVDs in my lifetime.
The first one was called An Awesome Christmas. It was a full theater showcase performance with some very famous guest stars in a beautiful Christmas setting. All of the special guest organists performed on the Lowrey Imperial Console organ.
The second video was entitled Home For The Holidays. The video totally starred the music and the joy of the Christmas season and features over 1000 beautiful Christmas scenes. This DVD is perfect to play during dinner or when guests are at your house or to truly celebrate the meanings of Christmas.
The first video features music and pictures of ' I’ll be home for Christmas. ’
The second video showcases two Christmas hymns.
The third one is Santa Claus is Coming To Town.
