Let's Start a Band

Postby Nicole Marie » Mon Jul 14, 2003 2:57 pm

It seems that we have enough people on the BBB to start a band. I play the double bass, OT sings... Who else plays or sings? Wanna join the band?

As always, the priority question that must be asked...what type of music? I play drums and have a very good friend who majored in music - plays guitar - primarily jazz and classical.

I play thy piano (one of the millions I'm sure.) Although in my day I was a virtuoso Bb Trumpet/Cornet player. I know I'm a little rusty though.

I'm in! Especially if the women go with that short skirt & high heel thing H.R.H. referred to elsewhere.... ;)

I can take off pretty well in the David Byrne/David Bowie type of singing. I rail on "Minnie the Moocher" as well.

So we have a guitar, keyboards, a double bass and drums...the start of a jazz band...or a Rush cover band...Metallica anyone?

In search of a vocalist...where would we rehearse?

Put me down for a background vocalist! OT's Tenor is certain to be lead vocal quality, so I'll be happy doing harmony. That stuff's FUN!

I'm trying to figure out how we're gonna rehearse when the band is in four different states...ROFLMAO...well, thank goodness for the internet...and broadband cable! The only question is...who directs?

We don' need no stinkin' director! Why do you think they call it jammin'?

I would like to try to recruit Owlice, Mary and Serenity for vocals as well. :cool:

I'd want Bignaf, except last time we discussed his singing, he compared it to barfing.... :eek:

As no one on this BB seems to really know what good bagpipes sound like, I'll take up the pipes! ;) ;)

Donna, we actually want to make appealing music. No bagpipes, accordions, Celine Dion or Charlotte Church allowed.

However, we do need one mo' backup vocalist, and we don't do what that a@@ of a chorus director did to you.

OT: I said I would take bribes not to play the pipes. Do I see some coming this way???

Unless you are planning on playing in a shower near me (which you had better not), you'll just have to find another vocalist.

Oh, go ahead and pick Eugene. Everyone ignores the Director anyway. ;)

E, that tempo is impossible and nonsensical and you know it. 105 for half note is already too fast. :)

I can often to the doo-wops, sha-la-las and shooby-doos, as long as I don't forget the words.

One more vocal volunteer, here. I'm a nice reliable soprano, moderate sized voice. Unless I'm stuck with this durn cold for the rest of my life, in which case I can give OT a run for his money.

I will also bring my kazoo.

Also willing to take up the violin, and accept bribes not to play.

I think Ben o'Den's attic would be a perfect rehearsal site, I think he's the most nearly central for this crowd.
