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.

Please click here to see our indiegogo fan funding campaign! SUPPORT AND SHARE! Thank you.


In Honor of Leonard Cohen 

I hope you enjoy this fan shot house concert from a few years ago. While we have better quality videos, I thought this was appropriate for today.

It goes like this 
The fourth, the fifth 
The minor fall, the major lift 
The baffled king composing Hallelujah...

Casey bully song (JPB Original)

Music and Lyrics by Jeffrey Paul Bobrick

This is for all the Casey's out there
This is to all the ones who never cared about you
So unaware about you
This is for all the broken hearted
Losers before the fight has started
How to get through
We will share about you

It makes me sick of everything I've ever seen
How can our lives be turned to such an angry dream
I saw him snap and throw that boy hard on the ground
The people watched but didn't care or make a sound

So many boys, so many men put up their guard
Their posture hides the places where they have been scarred
Where does it start, when does it end, I think we know
That it's a vicious seed and hatred makes it grow

This is for all the Casey's out there
This is to all the ones who never cared about you
So unaware about you
This is for all the broken hearted
Losers before the fight has started
How to get through
We will share about you

Speak with your fists but there are things you cannot say
So many victims and so steep a price to pay
There are some thing that happen that/and should never be
We let them go, it takes away from you and me

This is for all the Casey's out there
This is to all the ones who never cared about you
So unaware about you
This is for all the broken hearted
Losers before the fight has started
How to get through
We will share about you

Winter Wonderland - Happy Holidays!!! 

My first holiday single, “Winter Wonderland” is out! NOW! YAY!

You can see a fun video on youtube and you can buy it on on iTunes. It costs $.99. Making $1 may not be a big deal to you, but it is to me because it means that I’m in the music BUSINESS rather than the music hobby.
Here's the link to click and pick up my song “Winter Wonderland” right now:

If you don't like iTunes, you can buy it directly on my web site at:
Also, if you like it, please share the youtube video with anyone you think will like it. You know, Facebook wall, email, etc. That’s free, after all. Here’s that link:

In fact, here's a link to SHARE directly on your Facebook wall or with a Facebook friend:
