🥁🎷🎹🎺🎸🎙If we created a band...🎶

Emma_Emma_ Community Manager Posts: 601 Incredible Poster
It appears that quite a few of us are actually quite musical. So I'm keen to know, in a dream world where The Mix created a band:
  1. What would be your role (what instrument, vocals or tech)
  2. What song would we play?

I'll be backing vocals for any musical song - bonus points if it's disney!!

    I can play guitar so maybe either guitar or like backing vocals. Hey we could cover Circle of life by Elton John out of The Lion King.

    I can play piano and sing a little :smiley: Circle of Life sounds pretty awesome to cover hahah. We could probably also do Hakuna Matata if you're up for it! Or any song from Princess and the Frog XD

    Alrightyyy, sounds like The Mix production of The Lion King is coming to a theatre near you in 2023 :p

    So we've got vocals, guitar, piano and our front row audience - who else is joining our production?!

    @Morgan007 do you think you could dance whilst playing the clarinet? I think that might add something special into our band :p

    Tbf not got much to offer musically, I used to be able to play the recorder... and I could once play Beat Again by JLS on the keyboard. Happy to support with vibes and questionable interpretive dancing though! 😅

    Some backing dancers would be ace - lots of animals to play in Lion King ahah. Although I'm sure some interpretive version of Beat Again might be just what we're looking for :D@lydia99

    I can sing. I've also written my own song though.

    The band sounds amazing so far - let me know when the performance is so I can support with @lydia99 through "vibes and questionable interpretive dance" coz I'm also pretty good at that =)

    We need someone's younger sibling to use as the baby Simba.

    I'll ask around and see if we can borrow a baby for the performance :D do you think a puppy might work instead?

    This is what I got the idea from. https://youtu.be/_Xfpf5lUmWU But let's maybe not do this no matter how tempting it is. https://youtu.be/mYl6PVLA_zw

    This idea sounds so cool! Can I join too please?? I can do the... wait, I can't do anything lol.
    The only thing I can 'play' is the piano, but you already have a pianist. So I thought maybe I could try to do some beat in the background but you already have a drummer. And I can neither dance nor (and especially not) sing haha. I can be a great audience with @sinead276! :smiley:

    We could use my younger brother for this! :lol: Though he's a bit older than a 'baby' unfortunately.
    Believe in me - who believes in you
