Bright Blue Gorilla is Robyn Rosenkrantz and Michael Glover - from Los Angeles (though they''re usually on the road). They''re musicians, actors, and filmmakers who have shared the stage with Suzanne Vega, Luka Bloom, Richard Thompson, Loudon Wainwright, A.J. Croce, Ian Matthews, Mary Black, Fish, Townes Van Zandt, and many other fine artists.
You can catch BBG acting and singing 4 songs in the new Matthew Broderick & Alec Baldwin film, The Last Shot. (Touchstone Pictures.) It''s out now on DVD so buy it on eBay or head to your local video rental place.
BBG just wrote & directed their first full-length comedy film, Sister Sarah''s Sky. It''s an official selection of the Brussels International Film Festival. (Watch the movie trailer at their site!) BBG heads to Europe in September, 2005, in support of Sister Sarah''s Sky and their new CD. They''ll also be performing songs from STRANGE STRANGE DREAM, which was their 1st CD on their very own Monkey C Monkey D label. (There were two earlier CDs released by Virgin Records in Europe.)
What the press says about STRANGE STRANGE DREAM:
Oor Magazine(Netherlands): "...a refreshing and well-crafted debut... a sympathetic collection of songs as fascinating and varied as life itself."
Flair(Belgium): "Masterful songwriting...Won''t be long before BBG is a regular on radio..."
Isabel Allende(USA/Chile): [in letter to Robyn regarding the BBG song House of Spirits] "Thank you so much for your beautiful music! I feel honored that my book inspired you... It is good to know that sometimes my crazy characters touch other people''s souls."
Here''s some recent BBG happenings:
--> Watch for Michael playing harmonica in the new Dairy Queen TV ad.
--> In the film, A Mighty Wind, watch for Robyn during the concert finale.
--> BBG songs can be heard in three different episodes of the TV show The Osbournes - Season 3.
--> In the film, It''s All About Love, by Danish Director, Thomas Vinterberg, Robyn and Michael''s voices replace several of the actors voices. (The actors in question were from Europe and had accents that the director didn''t think sounded American enough.)
--> On the TV show, Enterprise, Michael is an alien - a "Tranon" to be exact.
--> On the TV show, The O.C., Michael played "a parole officer who looks like Lou Reed."
--> On the TV show, Boston Legal, Michael played the judge in the Michael Jackson trial who quits the case to become a Phil Spector look-alike. (No kidding.)
--> You can see the gorillas in TV commercials for Dairy Queen, Stanley Tools, the Academy Awards, Nokia phones, Disney Channel, and the German sit-com Alles Atze.
--> Robyn''s India Photos appear in the coffee table book, Photo Crafts, published by Lark Books.
--> Their voice characterizations are on Microsoft''s CD ROM game, Mech Warrior IV, and on various Disney Channel promos, commercials, etc.
It all started in 1990, when Robyn & Michael quit their L.A. jobs, sold everything they owned except their guitars, and bought one-way tickets to Europe. They''ve been travelling the world ever since.
