  • Holy Moses, I have just finished listening to the two CDs, and I am blown away!  What an incredible tour de force (coup de main?) by an auteur who did the libretto, music, arrangements, lead-singing, money-raising, hand-holding, floor-sweeping, etc. I do think you have brought this art form to a new height. Everything was indeed incredible.  The music was alternatively catchy and melodious.  The words were alternatively clever and soulful.  On the other hand, the singing and the playing were uniformly wonderful.  It was a joy to listen to your performances.

    Todd Stewart Former U.S. Ambassador

  • We are SUCH fans of Phineas McBoof. If you haven't heard the incredibly immersive story — The Ballad of Phineas McBoof and Phineas McBoof Returns — you must listen. It's truly a musical brought to life. Your kids' imagination will do the rest. We are SUCH fans of Phineas McBoof.

  • hello, i discovered you from a friend. anyway, i am still trying to get a handle on all the cool stuff you do and was hoping to see it in person, but apparently you like to tease southern californians by periodically visiting other areas and then coming to northern california but NOT coming down to LA and then going back to other regions then northern california….repeatedly. when will you be coming to LA (if ever?). will you, pretty pleeeeaasee??

  • My time working with the North State Symphony would not have been as eventful and exciting if I hadn't got the chance to work with you. It was always a joy to see little faces light up in the audience. I wish Phineas McBoof a mountain of success going forward.

  • I did check out a couple of the animated videos, and they're great!

    Emilio Miller Composer & Educator
  • The energetic former Pinewood School music teacher received quite a bit of buzz for his recording and book, “The Ballad of Phineas McBoof.” The story tells of a monkey singer who becomes so popular his admirers scream over his performances – a parallel to the Beatles’ heyday. Disillusioned, he travels to another land, where he meets up with new musicians and friends. As Phineas meets each new musician, another instrument is added to the mix, showing children how musical sounds come together.
