Music and Song Assembly Programs:
How did we get from the calm of colonial hymns to the fireworks of rap, and detour through the big-time fun of ragtime and doo-wop along the way? Brian has the answers … through adult concerts and lectures and school programs and workshops, all presented with doses of humor, mischief and multi-media ingenuity to spice up the game. sh BOOM!

Oh, yeah … and he sings! Brian’s piano artistry, contagious congeniality and versatile singing make him a power-house for the varied repertoire of Hollywood, Broadway, Swing era, Tin Pan Alley and Early Rock ‘n’ Roll.
