Great article yesterday about local phenom Howard Murdoh "the dancing man" of Los Angeles in the LA Weekly. On Facebook he goes by the user name LA Rocker. Howard goes to a lot of concerts and dances the night away. He's also volunteers with Alzheimer patients, "He lends his time and dancing skills to dementia and Alzheimer's patients, working with them as a pool and gym buddy at the Motion Picture & Television Fund near his home in Woodland Hills." He lies in Woodland hills with his boyfriend Ken Warren.

Howard's sister Joyce is also a musician. She's a singer, drummer and was even an ex model. Both of their parents supported Howard and Joyce's love for music and dance. Their family it seems has a long love of music and dancing.

Howard's parents are Jewish and he was raised Jewish. Howard chanted his Haftorah at Congregation Beth Kodesh in Canoga Park in 1964 at the age of 13. All four of his grandparents are Jewish and from Greece. They met and married in New York.

Howard's father was Max Larry Mordoh 1924-2008. His mother was Mary Shalom. They were both born, met and married in New York. They celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in 1972 with a big party and lots of dancing.

Howard's paternal grandparents were Haim "Hyman" Mordoh 1896-1982 and Julia Cohen 1900-1982 both from Thessaloniki, Greece. Haim was a checker. Thessaloniki is a Greek port city on the Thermaic Gulf of the Aegean Sea. Below is a pic of Hyman and Julia.



Howard's maternal grandparents were Nathan and Anna Shalom both from Thessaloniki, Greece. Nathan was a chauffeur and a cab driver.

Howard clearly has a long history of dancing in his family. We hope he enjoys many more years of dancing in Los Angeles.
