The Boobles are:
The Boobles is a comedy music project created solely to raise money for breast cancer research for treatment and a cure, through the ultimate trifecta of the timeless music of The Beatles, the power of comedy, and that which has captivated man for centuries… boobs!
The Boobles began developing in 2007 as the brainchild of Dr. Demento chart-topping1 parody song artist known as “Seamonkey” (“Juan Mellon”) who discovered while listening to his Beatles collection that there were many parody ideas presenting themselves, much to his delight all centering around two things: boobs! This e-tit-phany resulted in many different tongue-in-cheek themes, ranging from a father’s lament over his maturing daughter (“You’re Growing Boobs Now Girl”), to the horrors of undergarment shopping with a spouse (“Buying Brassieres Together”)… from America’s favorite top-dropping party, Mardi Gras (“Oh Won’t You Show Your Cans”), to flat out adoration (“We Love Boobs!”, “Fake Boobs”, “Double Ds” and “Breasts Are Great”)! At present, The Boobles are reworking 25 different Beatles classics encompassed in two upcoming albums, all to tickle your funny bone while working to eradicate the scourge of breast cancer! That’s a pair of wins!
The Boobles would not be possible without some very talented musicians, most of whom play in different Beatles tribute bands across the country. “Big Mike” Richardson (“Raul McHartteats”), provides all bass, lots of the guitar work, keys and backing vocals. He has played with Beatles tribute band “Me & My Monkey” as well as voted one of Fort Worth, Texas’ top classic-rock cover acts in 20092. Rodney Bollinger (“Jorge Chesterson”), a long time member of “Me & My Monkey”, adds more expert guitar licks, vocals, even trombone, and Brad Swiger (“Gringo Tarrt”) provides the beat with the authentic Ringo kits that he has used in Beatles tribute bands “A Hard Night’s Day” and “Yesterday”. We also have our own personal George Martin in Glenn Milam, recording and engineering all the sessions and donating the use of his recording studio as well as his knowhow and trained ears! Many other talented musicians are lending their time and craft to the project as well, including Pete Sacco of “Yestersday” and “Me & My Monkey” on the lead Macca vocals, the “European Ensemble” string quartet led by Edina Pastyik, and saxophone men Jeff Schilling and Jeff Dazey… with more players being added and to be announced soon!
Finally, all the talent and resources for this project are donated, no one is being paid for performing and no one is personally profiting from this project. The Boobles will be donating all the net profits after manufacturing and licensing costs to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (www.bcrfcure.org), a foundation dedicated to research for treatment and a CURE! We love it! They’re truly a great organization!
We’re not here to make a buck, we’re here to save boobs by being… well, boobs! Support the Boobles with your own donation today… all we are saying, is GIVE TEATS A CHANCE!!!
