Well, our band, The Blackbirds, is made up of Jo (JoB), Zac (Johnandonandonandon), Cat, Adriana and I. We played at a school concert tonight, and we played three songs. Imagine, Blood Bank by Bon Iver, and the Pokemon theme song (ohhhh yeahhh).

 

JoB has a video which she'll post when she can, but for now, pictures shall do!

Here are some pictures from the concert… Also, I'd like to note that we all completely swapped instruments for Imagine. I went from drums to piano, Zac went from guitar to bass (cos there's no guitar) and Cat went from bass to drums. Also, Jo did nothing. Sorry, Jo… Bahahaha

Me playing piano (and I've somehow gained a moptop. Also, LOL at my fingers)

Adriana, our singer, err… singing

Cat and Zac, playing drums and bass

Whole band shot (minus Adriana)

Jo playing piano (in either Blood Bank or Pokemon, dunno which)

Aaaaaaand, Cat playing bass.

So yeah! Jo, hurry up and post the video a-hard-days-night-john-6 

Also, I've somehow managed to completely stuff up the formatting. Ah well

We've seen the videos, but I just need my friend to send them to me, I'll put them on YouTube, then on here. Woo!

Also, you can't actually see it in the photos, but both me and James were wearing Beatles topsa-hard-days-night-john-6

Woo! We are the best, seriously.

 

I don't actually care that there was a few mistakes, it was a really good concert overall.

Paulrus, when you said "ohhhh yeahhh" I was irresistibly reminded of Kool-Aid Man.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I would have Zigged if I was drinking something.

We would have played Blackbird, but there wouldn't be anything to do for most of the band members.

Blood Bank (which is by Bon Iver, just in case you've never heard of it):

 

Aaand Pokemon:

 

Enjoy!

WOO, YOU POSTED THEM! 

It sounded better in rehearsals… a-hard-days-night-paul-1

Ah well, there you go! a-hard-days-night-john-6

 

Also, I should mention that Zac (the kid playing bass in Imagine and guitar in Blood Bank and Pokemon) had a completely stuffed up finger, so that's why he made a few mistakes. S'all good though.

Pfft, at least we could hear Adriana sing at the concert though! I never actually realised how good she really is until then…

Ok Maybe I'm getting too old or I'm getting into December 8th mood… but… I couldn't help to get teary when I saw Imagine video because I saw Job's avatar and then I saw you guys that were not even born when that song was written… I dunno. I get emotional when I hear someone that young singing Imagine with a lot of feeling.

 

And it was very good. It was done with the right emotion, and I like the way Adriana sang it. I didn't notice any errors. Well done!!!! a-hard-days-night-john-1apple01apple01

 

And what a better number for this post than a 9!!!

Thanks Mith!

I think that's our best song (out of only three that we know), and Adriana's an amazing singer.
