"I MOVED MY HEART TO SACRAMENTO" (AUDIO) is Loose Bruce Kerr's latest parody, an answer song to "I Left My Heart In San Francisco" as performed by Tony Bennett.
Much has been made lately, in the press and in blogs, of the move by many people from the Bay Area to the Sacramento area, often times in order to afford less expensive housing.
Song parodist “Loose Bruce” Kerr (nationally: Dr. Demento Show; Jim Bohannon Show), himself a Bay Area resident for 33 years who moved his family from Mountain View & Morgan Hill to Roseville, a suburb of Sacramento in 2017 has released this parody. Kerr sings and plays all the instruments one at a time in his multitrack studio in Roseville, CA. Kerr is from Waukesha, Wisconsin, the home of multitrack inventor, Les Paul, who inspired Bruce who saw him perform in their hometown in 1960.
According to recent newspaper articles, Sacramento has become a nationally-recognized “destination city” for people moving households nationally, oftentimes in order to be able to afford housing.
“Loose Bruce” Kerr is currently an attorney working for Oracle in Rocklin, CA, following a 20 year career as a performer and song parodist in the ‘70’s into the 90’s. Bruce’s songs are an irregular feature of the Dr. Demento Show and Jim Bohannon show on syndicated radio & internet. Bruce opened for “Weird Al” Yankovic back in the day. His breakout song was in 1987: “Walk Like a Deukmejian,” about California’s then-governor and Supreme Court Chief Justice, Rose Bird.
