UPDATE – 40 YEARS LATER 2016

Today, more than 40 years after HOME was formed, founding members Jerry Brown and Bill McKinney are making music together again. Although we will be playing as a duo, we have decided to call ourselves HOME again. At this point we are busy in the recording studio and hope to create some music videos of these songs in the near future. We hope this will lead to some “live” performances before the end of 2016. It feels great to be playing original music together again.

We have also created a HOME Fan Page on Facebook. We will be posting new and old music, photos, videos and performance dates on HOME Fan Page. Here is a link:

https://www.facebook.com/fanpageHOME/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel

Please visit our Facebook page and let us know what you think. Please “Like” it if you like it. Then you will be notified when we post new things.

The You Tube channel has over 30 videos from concerts that Jerry Brown did in the 1980’s and 1990s.  All the songs are originals except the 2 versions of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”.  Bob Reilly is playing on many of them.

    Claudia,
    I answered your request quite a while ago but I guess it didn’t work. Hopefully it will this time. If you’d like to e-mail me I’d be glad to send you some mp3’s of Home. My e-mail is Jbrown@lpi.com
    Thanks for remembering, Jerry

    Jerry, I remember listening to you in Kazoo when I was going to WMU. Was that the Whistle Stop where you played? Bill and I wen to Groves High School together. I do not have your old recording. Is there a way to obtain it now and put it on my ipod?

    Jerry, Let me try this again. Fan from the 70’s when at WMU. Have your album and have it converted to CD and now on my Iphone. Never can get enough of it. Was wondering via Dave Piersma’s email above about how can I get more music of yours? Anything you can send, anything on CD in the stores? Thanks Marc

    • Jerry Brown says:

      Marc,
      I have MP3’s of a lot of things including “live” stuff from the whistle stop. I can send some via a service called WeTransfer. Send me your e-mail address and I’ll send some stuff when I get a chance. My e-mail address is Jbrown@lpi.com. Thanks, Jerry

  4. Dave Piersma says:

    Jerry, I was googling your name from a wonder down memory lane and this site was given to me by a person I emailed regarding getting a cd from you or someone that new of the band Home. I was a student at Western in the late 70’s and was a constant fixture at the Whistlestop whenever you guys played there. Do you ever get together with the old members? Those were the best days of my life and your music was a key part of those days!

    • Jerry Brown says:

      Dave,
      Thanks for remembering. If you send me your address I can send you a CD of my album, which does include some HOME stuff. I will also be posting a lot more music on this site soon as well as many pictures, including a few at the Whistle Stop.
      Thanks again, Jerry

    Just some clarifications on these 1st mp3s and who are the bands and musicians.
    “Chain of Life” and “Nothin too Good for You” is Jerry Brown and Friends including me on piano, Mike Roush on Drums, Steve Vandenberg on Electric Guitar, Andy Paul on acoustic guitar, Tom Dunn on upright bass, Virgil Corby on violin and Cheryl Jewel and Jamie LaFerrier on back up vocals.
    “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” is the 1st incarnation of HOME featuring me on a bunch of stuff, Bob Callner on Guitar, Bill McKinney on Bass and Rick Ducharme on Drums.
    “The End of the Road” is me solo on a 4 track.
    “Time Traveler” is the 1st incarnation of Jerry Brown and Beyond with me on acoustic guitar, Larry Cook on Electric guitar, Mike Roush on Drums and Scott Butterfield on bass.
    I know it’s complicated but wanted the right folks to get credit. These folks are all West Michigan musicians.
    Thanks, Jerry
