Here's the latest documentary about the Professor World Band made by a film student in Boston. Thank you Maya! this is one of my favorites
America's Got Talent asked me to send them a video of me singing an original song about peace and love. So I wrote this song and recorded it in the basement. If they were like it you may see the Professor World Band on your TV screen next year sometime.

Thirty Five Years of The Professor World Band!

      This Coming Saturday, November 17'th, marks the thirty fifth birthday of the Professor World Band! Since it all started officially on my 30'th birthday, this Saturday will also be my 65'th birthday! That's quite a milestone and both the Professor World Band and Ramblin' Dan are still going strong. To celebrate I hope to be playing in the Boston Public Gardens if the sun is shining and it's warm enough. Come on down and join the band and help us make some peace waves on this special day! If the weather is wet and cold we will be playing somewhere in the T, probably somewhere on the Red Line.            

 Even the squirrels in the public garden want to join the band! 

Digger came with me to do an interview for Harvard Radio last week.
I'm working on a more portable show with Digger the Dancing Dog to travel with this winter.

Still Going Strong!

Wow , has it really been a whole year since I updated this blog? Well, it's summer time again and the Professor World Band is still going strong.  A lot has happened in my life since I last logged in here. I was in Athol all winter fixing up a house. A month ago I moved back to Shelburne Falls in western Massachusetts. I'm setting up my studio and workshop in the basement again and looking forward to doing a lot of practicing and tinkering there during the week. Most weekends I still make it to Boston to play in the public gardens.  It's been going quite well for me. I guess folk really appreciate it because the world really needs lots of peace waves these days. So I figure I'll just keep on keeping on for as long as I'm able. I've been adding lots of songs to my repertoire and lots of crazy new dodads and thingamagigs and drums and sounds to the professor world band. One  fun new innovation has been that I am experimenting with adding blocks under the wheels of the rotating stage so that  the whole contraption now is like a giant rocking chair that rocks back-and-forth to the beat  as I play it. It is effortless  and so much fun and helps me get into the beat and looks really crazy.lI plan on making some new videos very soon to post here .  In the meantime, here's a blast from the past that someone just recently sent to me. It's from an interview done almost 20 years ago for Israeli television  that was made on my trip through the middle east in the year 1999.  I looked a bit younger back then!
