Faux Feed Toy Orchestra Rehearsal

November 21 @ 7:00 pm - 7:55 pm

Yo band!
Time to try something a little crazy!

Purpose: to create content for social media, extend our online presence, and have some fun!

Background: Jimmy Fallon does a bit on his show where well-known bands play popular, rockin tunes on kid instruments. Metallica, The Roots, and Adele have all participated and it’s a hoot! Think of 3rd grade music class and the instruments one might find there. Blocks, one-octave xylophones, autoharp, kazoo, ukulele, recorders, and singing, of course.

Plan: to gather interested parties to sing and play some songs on kid instruments. 7pm on 11/21 in the bandroom.. BYOkidInstrument and/or voice. Despics! Y’all come! Play, dance, sing!

Musical Direction: currently popular radio songs with the possibility of some classics sprinkled in. If you have suggestions, please contact Amy with your ideas.

How to participate effectively:
1. Be familiar with the tunes. There will be little to zero sheet music!
2. Listen to all parts of the proposed songs, bass line, harmonies, extra elements, not just 1&3 on a drum with melody. We want to create musical fusion!
3. Think outside the box. What is an instrument anyway? Creative use of ___ is encouraged.

Playlist:
1. Louie Louie, band arrangement (proof of concept)
2. Budapest, George Ezra
