Welcome to Elliott Kerman's Site

Jules & Eli waiting for a train


Elliott Kerman & his Jumpin' Jazz Combo

I’m extremely excited to announce that I’ve put together my new band, consisting of me on vocals, Tom Hubbard on Bass, Tim Harrison on Piano, and Jeff Brillinger on drums. I’m also really thrilled that our debut will be a double bill with my old and great friends The GrooveBarbers (Sean Altman, Steve Keyes, Charlie Evett, & Kevin Weist.) Here are the details:

Friday, December 2, 7pm

Knitting Factory
Tap Bar
74 Leonard Street
New York, NY 10013
$15 in Advance / $17.50 Day of Show

I’m feeling quite rejuvenated after my yearlong musical hibernation, although I did poke my head out a couple of times to sing with The GrooveBarbers and to make a brief appearance in (and sing on) a feature film. In truth, life after Rockapella has been pretty fun-filled and hectic, although I have missed the excitement of performing live.

I've loved being at home more with Debbie, Eli & Jules. Eli seems to be having one very long growth spurt. He's now in 1st grade (which he loves), has started to play the piano (which we all love), and is playing on a soccer team again this year (I'm one of the refs - and I definitely need glasses). Jules is talking up a storm and he's extremely funny. He's started going to nursery school several times a week (which he adores). It really is amazing to be home all the time with the boys and to have the opportunity to watch them grow up.

Debbie's art career has been growing leaps and bounds. Many of her designs are now on products being sold all over the world, including dinnerware and glassware at Macy's, Kohl's, and Bed, Bath & Beyond; paper products in fine stationery stores; popcorn tins at The PopcornFactory; fabric in fabric and craft stores; wallpaper and borders and art prints, in many locations; and next year Christmas ornaments and rubber stamps and other scrapbooking items. Her relatively new website is great and you can get a taste of her art - here's the link: http://www.debbietaylorkerman.com

I've been spending about half my time working with Debbie on the business side, and the rest of my time immersed in songwriting and playing the piano (which I love).

Life is good.
