Neal Fox is an award-winning composer/playwright who has written for every medium from TV to theatre. His one-man multimedia show, Pigeonholes, received standing ovations from audiences in San Diego and Hollywood. This September (2007), Fox will premier his new one-man show, Thank You, Dan Rather, in Ft. Lauderdale.

As for Hotel del Swell, it was produced right after Fox finished his first musical, Meat Streetâa dark comedy about planet Earthâwhen he wanted something lighter. Hotel is a departure from his usual work because itâs mainly instrumental, and heâs known for his skills as a lyricist and preference for social commentary.

For the softer sounds of this CD, Fox used piano, guitar and synths, and invited his talented friend, John Rekevics, to add the sax parts.

In Hotel del Swell Fox gives you a musical peek behind closed doors of a once-swank establishment. Each room holds its memories, each occupant has a story. Find a cushy chair, sip a glass of wine, and enjoy.

Kitchen HelpâItâs a regular party in here.

(Here in the kitchen, evârything is bitchin)
Dirty Water
Take your order
Sprig oâ parsley sits above it
Shine those dishes
Clean those fishes
Take the trash out
God, I love it!
Donât need no business cards
Donât need no resumé
No college education is required
In the kitchen all your troubles seem to melt away
And itâs never too hot for the good life that we got.
Chefâs a master
I get plastered
See those rich ladies stuff their faces
Special dishes
Special wishes
I can take them to special places
Where the grease is flying
And the Champagneâs flowing
And the pots and pans beat rhythm like no other
Itâs a symphony of sweet ânâ sour
Getting sweeter by the hour
Never too hot for the good life that we got.
Weâre the players in some
Half forgotten, half-baked play
Still, weâre the ones who get to light your fire
Itâs a mystical experience, thatâs what they say
And itâs never too hot for the good life that we got.

Bridal SuiteâLove, romance, and the anticipation of a new life together

Donât Wake Me UpâYouâve been traveling all day and canât wait to hit the pillow. Tick, tick, tickâ¦BZZZZ!

Get Off My BackâMarried since they were kids, they donât hear each other anymore. She nags. He mumbles. Two recordings on an endless loop.

Room for OneâEven in a crowded city, you can still be all alone.

No MonkeysâKasnovskiâs Animals made the rooms unlivable, so the story goes. Since then the hotel has strict rules about animal acts. Especially ones with monkeys.

Working GirlsâTheyâve been around since the Grand Opening. Though still elegant, like the hotel, theyâre in need of some minor repairs.

A Night Like ThisâIt was supposed to be a one night stand. Then he looked into her eyes.

WidgetsâThey descend on the Hotel del Swell from all parts of the world. They wear seersucker suits. They have fake hair. They sell widgets

Next Bottle of WineâIs he really a hero? Or is his mind gone from booze?

My lady
Do you care to dance with me?
Why donât you play that song again
Your perfume
The smell of roses
Those shoes you wear
Are they really glass
Now the hour of twelve
Has come to pass

And it sure has been a wonderful evening,
The talk was good and the food was so fine
But the time has come to awake from my dreaming
Iâll be seeing you all
Next bottle of wine

My friends thereâs
No need to honor me
Iâm sure if
You wore my shoes
Youâd have done the same
Iâm glad my life
Could have helped few
In the name of God
I thank you all
Itâs a lucky man who hears the call

And it sure has been a wonderful evening,
The talk was good and the food was so fine
But the time has come to awake from my dreaming
Iâll be seeing you all
Next bottle of wine
