    The O’Neill Brothers to be Featured on PBS

    Piano-Playing Brothers Invite February Concert Tour Guest Vocalist
    Deborah Gibson to Perform on Upcoming Holiday Special

     

    NEW PRAGUE, MN (December 2, 2005)—Minnesota-based musicians Tim and Ryan O’Neill will be featured performers in a Holiday music special to air on PBS stations in the Midwest beginning Tuesday, December 6, 2005.
     
    The piano-playing brothers are featured in a one-hour show, The O’Neill Brothers: Piano for Someone You Love, which includes holiday favorites and selections from their upcoming CD release, Someone You Love. Guest vocalist Deborah Gibson, known for her ‘80s pop music hits and Broadway roles, is featured on several selections – including a new acoustic version of her hit “Lost In Your Eyes” and the title track from the upcoming album, “Someone You Love.” Ms. Gibson will be joining Tim and Ryan on their February concert tour in the Midwest.

    Television viewers watching the show will have a chance to receive tickets to the musicians’ February concert in Minneapolis (at Orchestra Hall on February 14, 2006) and CDs (including the not-yet-released Someone You Love) as a gift for supporting their local public broadcasting station.

    Tim and Ryan O’Neill, New Prague natives and current Twin Cities residents, have sold more than 1 million CDs—without being associated with a major record label. Along the way, the brothers have written and performed music for HBO (including music for “Sex and the City”), NBC and ESPN; and performed for President George H.W. Bush. In February 2005, their 3-CD set of romantic songs, From the Heart, hit No. 30 on the Billboard Catalog Album chart and No. 1 on the New Age Catalog chart. And their wedding album, A Day to Remember, quickly became the best-selling CD on weddingchannel.com and theknot.com.
