"Lottery Jingles" CD

Welcome to Lottery Jingle World. This is a CD with nine radio spots I composed and produced for the Louisiana Lottery Corporation. I took these assignments very seriously since we are living in a time where having the payola to buy your way onto state wide radio is next to impossible unless you have a major behind you. “Lottery Jingles” is selling well on iTunes and folks in Europe are buying the songs and CD. Track # 9, “Poker Night” has been published in three iTunes iMix playlists. And the company ain’t bad, “Elvis”, “Ray Charles”... check it out here... “Goin’ to Vegas Baby!!” (iMix), “The Ultimate Poker Soundtrack” (iMix), “Poker on a Friday Night” (iMix).

The first four of the jingles on the CD have won National & International awards in advertising. "Pick 4" the first cut on the CD, won BEST RADIO SPOT at the NORTH AMERICAN LOTTERY AWARDS, in Halifax Nova Scotia, 1999. There were 47 Lottery companies at the competition, from all over North America.

Also included on this CD is the "Brocato Piece." This was composed for (Sam Brocato) Brocato International's 1998 appearance at the "ALTERNATIVE HAIR SHOW", at the ROYAL ALBERT HALL, LONDON. Every year a video of the show is made and distributed throughout the world wide hair industry. The "Alternative Hair Show" is one of the biggest Leukaemia fund raisers in the world.

The CD ends with a re-mastered version of "ANTIFLUFF SUPERSTAR".

This CD will make you dance and funk ya up and leave you with a smile. If you want to hear what fresh, Louisiana-Mardi-Gras Party- Funk sounds like click on the button below.


"Antifluff Superstar" the CD

“Antifluff Superstar” was composed & recorded during a period of unprecedented self-growth. So much energy goes into making records. Only those that have know what it’s like. Takes everything you have body, mind & soul. It's a fantastic CD and some great musicians played on “Antifluff Superstar”- Many of the same who played on my first CD, “Perchaplectic”(*) :
