Please plan to attend and play with us!!! Contact Gordon Kohl for your part assignment. (I am mailing him the parts on Dec. 22)

This arrangement – takes advantage of MAJOR REPEATING of patterns and notes – so – I can easily call this a level 3 – with some of the parts – actually level 2.5!!!

About the Song

My Boyfriend’s Back” was a hit song in 1963 for The Angels, an American girl group. It was written by the songwriting team of Bob Feldman, Jerry Goldstein and Richard Gottehrer. The recording, employing the services of drummer Gary Chester, was originally intended as a demo for The Shirelles, but ended up being released as recorded. The result was a single that spent three weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and number two on the R&B Billboard.

Fictional music group The Chipettes covered the song for “Hooping It Up,” a 1986 episode of Alvin and the Chipmunks.

The song is featured in the 2006 Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys. It was also featured on the U.S. television show “American Dreams,” where it was sung by Christian Pop singer Stacie Orrico, backed by series stars Brittany Snow and Vanessa Lengies.
