my band

My friend Lucas posted this and I thought it was fun. I'm usually not a fan of "pass it along" type blogs, but this one has promise to give insight to each who posts it. The idea is to build your own dream band...

Vocals: Shane Bernard, Jason Mraz, and Amos Lee

Lead Guitar: John Mayer (John Mayer)

Rhythm Guitar: Shane Bernard (Shane & Shane)

Bass: Michael Balzary (Red Hot Chili Peppers)

Drums: Darren King (Mute Math)

Keys: John Legend (John Legend)

Other: I'd let CS Lewis be in charge of the band's theology and Rich Mullins would help out with lyrics.

I'm not exactly sure what kind of sound would come out of the band, but it would be pretty great.

I'd like to see the bands from a few other:
Carson & Hillary Belmont
Mike Lovato
Whitney Cloud
Merea Price

I'll share mine, although you did not request it.

Vocals: Feist & Damien Rice

Lead Guitar & Harmonica: Ryan Adams

Rhythm Guitar: Dave Matthews

Bass: Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers)

Drums: Carter Beauford (Dave Matthews Band)

Keys: Ben Folds

Other: I could use C.S. Lewis but I'd like him to team up with Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie / Postal Service) and Shane Barnard does everything right.

Wow that is a pretty different band, are you sure they'd all get along?

amy - your band would definitely mesh better than mine... I like it. By the way Flea is Michael Balzary, we picked the same guy for bass. You probably knew that, so that may be for the general public's knowledge.

carson - no, I anticipate that they wouldn't get along - perhaps that would cause some great dissonance in the music... I bet Jason Mraz would be the first to get frustrated that everyone else is so much more musical (and better) than he. But you can't beat his scatting...

oh amy, I did think to request your band, but you don't blog anymore so I thought it a futile request. It's good to know you are still part of the blogging community via shameless stalking without the responsibility of posting.

no your all wrong here is the best band in the world.

Lead guitar, rhythm, lead vocals, back up vocals, beat box drums: Trever Hoene

Bass: Flea

talk about meshing.

oh and maybe if we are lucky we could have the Gaithers sing and provide proper theology.

Why would you want a band from me? You know I have no idea about music stuff! Are you trying to humiliate me in front of all our friends?
