Get Michael McCormack’s TSISW Soundtrack at JAWSFest


 Just as I told him back in May 2006, this album is dedicated to my favorite actor, Mr. Roy Scheider (1933-2008). I share this dedication with John Williams, Steven Spielberg & the rest of the great cast and crew of the film “Jaws” and the many generations of wonderful fans this timeless, classic film has inspired and entertained. – Michael McCormack

This original soundtrack includes 38 tracks consisting of new instrumental music and two sea shanties inspired by, and meant to evoke, the impact and legacy of the enduring classic film, JAWS. Two newly recorded vocal tracks on the CD, “Show Me the Way to Go Home” and “Spanish Ladies” – feature dynamic lead guitar by Nashville-based guitarist/producer Greg Parker with vocals by Michael McCormack.

Prior to its official release on August 14th, the soundtrack CD for “THE SHARK IS STILL WORKING” will be available at JAWSFEST (in the JAWSTORE from AUGUST 9-11) and available at MichaelMccormackMusic.com, Amazon.com and CDBaby.com beginning AUGUST 14th, 2012 

Michael McCormack, a life-long fan of “JAWS,” is Composer and Co-Producer of “THE SHARK IS STILL WORKING: the Impact and Legacy of Jaws” (along with Producers James Michael Roddy, Erik Hollander, James Gelet and Jake Gove) and a proud sponsor of JAWSFEST – with special thanks to JAWSFEST Event Producer Susan Sigal-Goldsmith, who will feature the music from this CD at the JAWSFEST celebration!

Quint Recreated for JAWSFest


Quint has been recreated for JAWSFest: The Tribute! Nick Marra created this silicon likeness for Greg Nicotero’s JAWS display at the upcoming JAWS event. For the first JAWSFest, Nicotero created a life-size bust of the shark. The creation and unveiling of the shark was documented in The Shark is Still Working, out August 14th on the JAWS Blu-ray.

Nicotero, of
KNB EFX, is a life-long JAWS fan. Be sure to check out AMC’s The Walking Dead to see Nicotero’s zombies in action.

JAWSFest: The Tribute Event Aug 9-12

There is going to be another JAWSFEST!  JAWSFEST: The Tribute will be held August 9-12, 2012 on Martha’s Vineyard, MA, the filming location of the original JAWS. JAWSFEST: The Tribute is being produced by MV Promotions Network, directed by Susan Sigel Goldsmith.  The upcoming event sounds great for JAWS fans:

This three-day fan-centric event will explore the experiences, filming, and memories from the making of JAWS. Our tribute will concentrate on the men and women of JAWS who have passed, with special focus on Peter Benchley, Roy Scheider, and Robert Shaw. We are inviting fans, families, cast, and crew to join us in Amity (Martha’s Vineyard) to share their personal stories, memorabilia, and experiences. This event will explore how the making of JAWS has impacted the lives of those who came to Amity in 1974 and how the blockbuster film they created continues to impact lives today. 9 am to 10 pm various Island locations.

More information about the event can be found here:
