The Fabulous Heftones and Friends
The Fabulous Heftones perform Moon June Spoon music, mostly 1920's. Love songs, fun songs. Brian and Lynn sing & whistle, Brian plays a mean ukulele!

Brians brilliant ukulele playing makes this act a real favorite at ukulele gatherings from Michigan, to Indiana, to Chicago and even New York City.

Lynns vocals are sweet and pure, a perfect match for the lyrical love songs of this era.

Lynn plays a Heftone bass, a five-stringed upright acoustic instrument played just as one might play any other upright acoustic bass. However, it might reasonably be called a bass banjo rather than a bass violin. The instrument was invented and built by Brians father, Larry Hefferan.

In addition to the instrumentation and vocals this duo creates, both solo and in harmony, Lynn adds whistling in pure tones (sometimes joined by Brian).

Brian also vocalizes in a style sometimes called eefin, which sounds something like adding a trumpet to the mix. Eefin was common in the 1920s, when a lot of The Fabulous Heftones music was originally written and performed. Cliff Edwards, also known as Ukulele Ike (the voice of Jiminy Cricket), was well-known for eefin.
