BOB DOROUGH

Bob Dorough gave us "Three is a Magic Number," the song that
inspired Tom Yohe to draw, Rad Stone to suggest an educational series and Mike Eisner and Chuck Jones to put it on the ABC Television Network. Bobby has been our Music Director since day one and has produced every single recording session we've done.

More importantly, he recruited Dave Frishberg, Jack Sheldon and Blossom Dearie for our series. He wrote great charts for Lynn Ahrens before she became an accomplished Broadway composer-lyricist. And propped me up when I decided to unpack my adjectives and compose songs about bones and electoral colleges. He's even gracious enough to give me credit for the concept of a Conjunction Junction, though I could never have written anything as brilliant as his song that's known to millions now as our biggest "hit."

Yes, Bob is still gigging and making audiences smile and nod appreciatively as he sings his (and our) music.

In 2002 Bob and his trio (Steve Berger, guitar and Pat O'Leary, bass) were sent on a "Jazz Ambassadors" tour of South America by the U.S. State Department. Unfortunately, there's no record of how Lolly, Lolly, Lolly did on the pan American charts.


If you're smart you'll go to his website and get yourself on his mailing list. You don't want to miss the chance to see Bob in person.
