Now the Coney Island Troubadour has a new blog to get his word out.
Wengler’s bio states (MySpace):
Moved to the US from Isreal when I was 10, the British invasion caught my attention and by the age of 16 I found myself with a guitar and began the process of creating music. Started out playing on the streets of New York in the west village, then moved around and found myself in New Orleans as a Busker, then over to Amsterdam where I performed in a musical comedy that I co-wrote called “Welcome to Transylvania”. One of the tracks from the show was picked up and recorded by EMI. Eventually I returned home and made Brooklyn my home. When I returned back to the US I recorded with Henry Hirsh at Waterfront Studios, where I recorded the tracks “Polar Bear” “Mermaid Parade” and “The Same Mistake” which was published the Rainbow Collection. Today I have written over 100 songs, and continue to perform on the boardwalk as the Bard of Coney Island, where you will see me performing at the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, The Swims of the Coney Island Polar Bear Club, and a weekly regular at the Stillwell Ave Station as a performer for the MTA for Music Under New York Program.
