Welcome to the original and only web site dedicated to the famed theme of the Hartford Whalers, Brass Bonanza. Serving Whalers fans since 1995.

RIP Jack Say (7/10/2017)

Jack Say (1922-2017)
Jack Say has passed away in Belgium. He was 94.

Known to friends and family as Jacques Ysaye, he used Jack Say as a pseudonym. He arranged and composed a song titled “Evening Beat“, which he sold to a record library. This song was renamed by editors to “Brass Bonanza”, went on to become the much-loved Whalers theme song, and the rest is history.

Rest in peace, Jacques. Your music continues to bring smiles to Whalers fans and beyond…
