ABOUT

Paul L. Eichlin is an accomplished keyboard player for the past 55 years. Paul started playing piano at age 5 and was even declared talented in those earlier years. Paul has perfect pitch and plays mostly by memory without any sheet music required. If he has heard and knows the song by memory, he can play it . The favorite era in which he specializes in is from the 1940's to the 1970's and remembers thousands of popular songs from those eras and can play them without any sheet music required. He also knows many songs and hymns prior to those eras going back many years. The 59 year old musician is a native from the Borough of Washington, N. J. and had lived in the same house for 52 years before coming to the Central Jersey Shore area.
Upon arriving at Ocean Grove and Asbury Park, Paul began a Carousel-Style music, also known as "Callapie Music" in Ocean Grove, N. J. on July 18, 2015. The Carousel-Music is reminiscent to the Carousel Music heard for many decades going back to the early 1900's. The music performance was moved to the Asbury Park Casino in August 2015 on the insistence of two Asbury Park Police Officers who heard the music. The Carousel-Music is reminiscent to the Carousel Music heard for many decades going back to the early 1900's from Palace Amusements in Asbury Park, N.J. The original music from Palace Amusements serenaded the areas all around it, including the Boardwalks and Beaches of Ocean Grove and Asbury Park. Palace Amusements was in operation for 101 summers from 1888 until November 27, 1988 and at that time the once beloved Carousel-Style music was silenced. The revival of his Carousel-Style music in 2015 at the Asbury Park Casino has been very popular with many residents and tourists as it brings back the memories of the old time Boardwalk days during those "Glory Years" we all remember. People of all generations as well as children love the music. During that time, Paul also had the opportunity to perform at the Paramount Theater at Convention Hall in Asbury Park on September 19, 2015 for the Glen Burtnik Love Concert along with performing the Premiere for The Annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony at Asbury Park’s Convention Hall on November 28, 2015. There have been numerous articles in local magazines and websites on his music venues during the Summer and Fall of 2015 and up to the present day. There have also been three TV Interviews on the Boardwalk performances including one done on Labor Day with WPIX- News and two interviews with PBS in October 2015.
Paul was also featured in the television program "Driving Jersey - Here's the Story - " Seasons Greetings from Asbury Park" which originally aired December 23, 2015 on PBS-NJTV Networks. The program has been rerun many times ever since and to this day with proposed reruns of the program in the future.
In his earlier years, he was part of the Warren Hills Regional High School Marching, Concert and Stage Bands from 1971-1977. He was also part of Bill Galloway's All-Star Band from 1976-1981, which featured Big Band Era songs as well as other popular songs back in the day. He has done solo musical engagements ever since.
Paul purchased a new electronic Yamaha Keyboard originally in 2009, and an exact duplicate model in the Fall of 2017. The keyboard digitally contains 400 different types of musical instruments and about 100 sound effects and has the capability of sounding like a whole orchestra when all the tracks in the keyboard are combined in the memory bank. The big advantage with this type of keyboard is that any of the 400 types of musical instruments can be substituted on the keyboard in place of the actual instrument, whether be guitar, trumpet, saxophone, clarinet, etc. The keyboard also contains a variety of types of pianos and organs.
Paul has used the Yamaha keyboard with its capabilities to produce nine albums over the years beginning in 2011. He started out with the "Hit Parade Favorites" series which is featured in 7 numerical Volumes with more volumes planned to be added in the future. The albums slogan is "An Orchestra on a Keyboard" as the keyboard has the capability of sounding like a whole orchestra when all the tracks in the keyboard are combined in the memory bank. There is also a Christmas album entitled "Ring the Bells" which contains traditional popular Christmas songs. The mastering of the music was personally done by Paul, along with all artwork. You can view the album series of both "Hit Parade Favorites" and "Carousel Memories" in the photos section of this website.

With the popularity of the Carousel Music with the public, Paul started a "Carousel Memories" Album Series featuring the "Popular Carousel-Style Songs of Yesteryear Still Popular Today."
