Welcome to the Twinn Connexion official website!

If you're looking for music, art and maybe a little fun (gay or straight), I hope you've come to the right place. My twin brother, Jay, died in 2001. He was half of the group Twinn Connexion (we signed 2x meaning two kisses).

My beloved partner of 44 years, Bob Cessna, passed away August 2, 2008. In 2010, Now Sounds Records reissued Twinn Connexion's 1968 self-titled debut album. Below is a promotional video I recorded for the album.

So, you can say this website is a place for me to keep the home fires burning now that I'm still around to carry the torch. I live in Woodstock, New York -- just a stones throw from the original Bearsville A studio run by Alex Grossman, who recorded and managed many top groups in the sixties including one of my favorites, The Band. His wife Sally still owns the property in front and back of me I've lived most of my life in New York City and I still own a co-op on the Westside of Manhattan.

I've been involved in Theatre, Music and Art (painting) all of my life and I continue to strive to work and improve. This is my joy.

A dear friend Fritz Liess (also an identical twin) is the force behind the design and development of this achievement, being a wizard and a fantastic human being. With his expertise this endeavor should be off and running in a few weeks.

When Jay and I were in Junior High in Helena Montana, we used to sing a song My Best To You. I'm not sure who wrote it, but I think Rosemary Clooney recorded it and I'm sure she was holding a champagne glass. I love the lyric:

jerry_florence.jpgMy best to you
May your dreams come true
May old Father Time
Never be unkind 
Down through the years
Save your smiles and tears
They are souvenirs
They make music in your heart
Remember this
Each new day's a kiss
Sent from up above
With an angel's love
So here's to you
May your skies be blue
And your love blessed
That's my best to you

Sincerely yours,


Jerry Hopkins
