A Note from Dan Kimpel, on behalf of John Braheny, who passed away earlier this year. 

Dear Friends,


Thank you for filling the Concert Hall at Musicians Institute with so much love at the John Braheny Memorial Event. 

Many of you have asked how you can help. This coming Sunday evening, May 5, from 6-9 p.m. PDT there will be an online event broadcast live from Kulak’s Woodshed in Los Angeles, with performances in John’s honor from Stephen Bishop, Allan Rich, Harold Payne and Dorian Holley – hit songwriters and performers whose careers were dramatically impacted by the Los Angeles Songwriters Showcase (LASS), the organization that John co-founded and directed. 

John and JoAnn with friends

As he battled cancer in the final year of his life, John was unable to work and his economic resources were severely challenged. Per his wishes, we want to support JoAnn; to update a digital version and record an audio adaptation of his book, and to create an online archive of LASS with historic interviews, articles, and related information. 

If you would like to donate to this endeavor (and thank you to those of you who have already done so), you may do so via Paypal to JoAnn@JohnBraheny.com. You may also send a check to JoAnn Braheny, PO Box 5715, Sherman Oaks, CA 91413. Donations will be most appreciated. 


Please tune in and join us Sunday Night, 6:00 p.m. PDT

Thank you Dan Kimpel for bringing the community together, to celebrate John and support his love, JoAnn.
