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:
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.
