For the first time in 30 years, the smash Broadway musical hit, 'AVANTGARDE' starring ERNEST KOHL is being released by popular demand! It's debut in 1982 in Union Square was a complete success with sell out crowds! In fact, the show was such an attraction that it was moved to the F Sharp Theater on 51st and Broadway for another great run! Unfortunately, the Actors Equity Union later imposed new rules on shows and closed down 'AVANTGARDE' along with several other well known Broadway shows. Closed down ... but not forgotten ... the 'AVANTGARDE' original cast soundtrack recording has recently been pulled out of the vault and is now fully digitally restored and re-mastered! This promotional video gives you a glimpse into a few of the wildly entertaining 'AVANTGARDE' musical vignettes! If interest is once again piqued with the soaring voices of the cast ensemble and the fantastic original score, this may very well warrant a revival! Stay tuned on this show ... you never know ... it might very well be appearing in a theater near you!

Ernest Kohl - Avantgarde: The Musical on CD this Month!

New York singer/songwriter Ernest Kohl explains, "When I was 16 I starred in a Broadway musical that had a huge wonderful successful opening and was eventually moved uptown to B-way & was selling out every night to great reviews. It was AVANTGARDE.

Well, Actors Equity unfortunately went in to new rules and 4 big musicals closed. Ours was one of them- the Original Cast Recording was never released and because of that, it put a lot of actors out of work.

It is very sad, that over the years ALL of the guys in the original cast, outside of me, have passed away from AIDS.

All the woman are still living and many have great careers & TONY's now!

I promised my best friends on their deathbeds, I would get this Cast Album out- Somehow, some day. And over the years, this has been my goal.

Finally on December 31st - The Original Cast Album of "AVANTGARDE" will be released! I am so excited. It has been fully restored & remastered & with a special bonus track added (it did not fit on vinyl back then).

Now it will finally be out on CD & on Digial Download for the world to experience it's magic.

I succeeded in my mission.

There is even talk of a revival if the album does would have to be re-done & up-dated. But that's why this legendary Cast album (that's now has huge cult appeal ) must come out & we had so many requests for it.

It is exciting that the original Cast Musical "AVANTGARDE" will be released & the beautiful voices of our lost men to Aids will finally be heard by the world and I was able to keep my promise to them! We are dedicating it in memorial trubite to the guys lost."

Brett Gleason - 'Last Christmas' (WHAM! Cover)

Gavin Creel - "Noise" An Anthem for Equality


100% of proceeds go to help Broadway Impact educate, inspire, and connect communities all across the country with one common goal: EQUALITY NOW.

"Gay rights are human rights, and if we want things to change, we all need to take action. We can't stay frustrated, quiet and complacent. We have to be willing to make some noise. This song aims to get us all fired up: gay, straight, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and anyone in between. I'm ready to welcome in a new age of full legal protection in all matters governed by civil law in all 50 states for ALL citizens, and I believe we will get there. But the men and women who have the power to change the laws so that we are all represented and protected equally need to hear from us, NOW. This song calls out to people who believe in equality, regardless of sexual orientation or identity; people who are ready to take action, use their voices and be heard. Until we have equal rights all across this great country, we will play it as long and as loud as we have to. So, let's go....

Get the tune, turn it up, and let's make some NOISE! "- Gavin Creel, 2011

Toni Vere - Grandma's Old Guitar

03 Grandma's Old Guitar by ToniVere

My Grandpa played the fiddle and Grandma played a lap guitar back in Oxbow Sk in the mid 1930's - 1940's. By the time I came along they'd long packed up their music. When my Grandpa passed away some of his and Grandma's history made its way to my Dads and one day while visiting Dad ,pulled out this old guitar that was falling apart. It was Grandma's and he gave it to me. I took it apart and packed it up in a big box with an old quilt to keep it safe and hauled it around with me and my confused life for 10 years. Grandma passed away when she was 99 and I still had the guitar in a box. My wonderful partner Marilyn put the guitar back together for me and i wrote this song in honour of two of the finest people i've known in my life, Grandma and Grandpa ... this ones for you.
