Pandemic, Plans and Purpose 

My Dear Fans and Friends,

During this time of uncertainty, I am dealing with my own additional uncertainty, as my parents tackle health challenges. As their loving son, I am their by their side.

Musically, I am quieter than usual. However, I am working on new songs in the silence, and am excited to share them with you soon.

Thank you for your support, your love, and for always making me feel welcome.

Take good care of yourselves and of team human.

As far as my music, I promise...the best is yet to come!



Remembering Michael Jackson 

Today is the 10th anniversary of the passing of the "King of Pop," Michael Jackson. I loved Michael and had the amazing opportunity to meet him twice. I mourn the loss of a great American artist and humanitarian. 

When I think of Michael Jackson, I don't only think about arguably the greatest entertainer who has ever lived. I also think about the humanitarian who contributed an estimated $300 million dollars to charities, and who, when on tour, would often visit as many children's hospitals as he gave performances. Michael's commitment to people and the planet, as well as his music, inspire me to this day. 

If you want to be a little sad, but also smile, please take a look at this live in studio performance from me 10 years ago:

"Tweetin' Donald" Music Video Update 

The "Tweetin' Donald" music video short is 95% complete, and it looks fantastic.

The track is blistering, with amazing guitar work, and I'm really happy with the vocals as well. Our puppeteers did the most fantastic job, and the song and video really sparkle! The director, Ben Bogard, and I are working on the final cut and release date! More updates very soon! It is not too late to contribute and help produce this project. If you would like to be a backer, or have a question about this, please reply to this email me and say "I want to help make 'Tweetin' Donald' a reality!" I promise you... THE BEST IS YET TO COME!

This with Love! JPB

"Tweetin' Donald" - Making Music Videos Great Again 

I'm very excited to share with you my newest project: "Tweetin' Donald" It’s a parody of the song "Rockin' Robin" that takes a comedic yet poignant look at our time so far with 45...with puppets! 

The puppets are currently in production, the song is sounding great, the shoot is scheduled, and we have a fantastic creative team.

Autumn Update 

Dear Fans!

I appreciate all your support of my music and work, whether it's sharing my Chanukah video, LIKEing my Facebook page, or commenting on one of my youtube videos.

Right now, I continue to work on co-writing a new musical. It's fun, funny, edgy, a bit corny, and I hope you'll love it!

I'm also working on a marriage equality anthem and music video, to be released in 2016!

You'll definitely be hearing more from me in the future. "You ain't seen nothing yet!"


"Sacred" - YouTube - Live Performance 

I have fans all over the world, but I haven't performed all over the world...yet! One of the things that is amazing about the internet is that we can reach people so far away. With Valentine's Day approaching here in the US, I wanted to share with my fans a live performance from Los Angeles of my song "Sacred." It's a stripped down version, just a keyboard, a voice and a guitar. I hope you really like it, and treasure your loved ones, this Valentine's Day, and always!

"I will never let anyone hurt you
I will forever care
Because you are everything I’ve ever wanted
And you’re sacred to me."

SHARE "It's Chanukah!" 

It's that time of year agan! "It's Chanukah!"
Enjoy the magic, fun and whimsy of one of JPB's most beloved songs!

Center for Social Innovation, 601 West 26th Street - 11th floor, New York, NY

Jeffrey is honored to have some of his music featured in Chutzpah! The Musical.

Chutzpah! is an irreverent musical comedy about a Jewish girl from Long Island who runs away from home and gets a job at a Manhattan deli. No sooner does she learn the difference between a kishka and a tuches that she discovers the deli is a front for a burlesque club run by Orthodox Jews! Will she make it as a burlesque dancer? Will she make it with the club’s DJ? Will she reconcile with her family? Or will her idea to use her father’s new polysaccharide as a tool for sexual liberation be the answer to a repressed society’s dysfunctionality? A smart and funny look at modern Jewish values and the sexual hypocrisies behind the traditions.  

Come to this benefit reading to raise funds for Camp del Corazon, a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides year-round experiential opportunities for children faced with the challenges of growing up and living with heart disease.

JPB Joins with Lifebeat's Hearts and Voices 

Lifebeat’s Hearts & Voices Progam is an on-going live performance series for people living with HIV/AIDS.

Every year Hearts & Voices produces an average of 250 concerts, bringing the gift of live music to thousands of people at numerous facilities throughout New York City and Washington, DC including hospitals, residential facilities and day treatment centers. Every week, talented musicians from all musical genres volunteer their time and talent to entertain the most appreciative of audiences.

Many people living with the HIV/AIDS routinely spend time in facilities that can serve their health needs. Most people in these facilities are not able to go out to enjoy live music and entertainment, so Hearts & Voices brings the beat of the city to them.

Jeffrey Paul Bobrick is honored to be a Heart and Voices Artist. "I've always belived that all human beings have gifts that we can share to improve the lives of others," says Jeffrey. "I've been very fortunate in life and it's important that I pass that on. For me, one of the things I can give is music. I'm so happy and joyful to be working with this great organization to share the gift of song with those who could use it most."

Hearts & Voices continuously seeks to adapt to the changing needs of the HIV/AIDS community by tailoring live performances to meet the desires of patients and residents. The Hearts & Voices artist roster is diverse, and always expanding. Celebrity performers who have participated include Destiny’s Child, LL Cool J, Stanley Jordan, Jewel, Ethan Hawke, Jon Secada and Floetry, among others.

“… some days I can barely get out of bed, but I know that I have to fight this thing… music helps a great deal, we can sing along, and it makes us feel like we are still a part of society.”
- Carol, patient

“Music is a form of contact to another person (expressing) your feelings. But it’s not done verbally, it’s done through the soul.”
- T. J., patient
