Air Band Camp?

Postby moonwookie » Sat Nov 17, 2012 1:00 pm

Has it been done?

Small stage, intimate sound system. This is, shall we say, a "karaoke totem pole". Why let the singer have all the fun? Get an air drummer, air guitarist, air bass player, and make an entire air band! Depending on the number of volunteers, you could make a big band jazz ensemble, a blues set with harmonica and piano, even country lap guitars. The only person with equipment would be the one with the microphone, and they don't even have to sing (probably better if they don't, especially if they don't know the words!). You need NOTHING in the way of musical training, just pile on the musical emoting and you're ready to go.

Never heard of it having been done, anyway.

. . . Even if it had been done, it doesn't meant you shouldn't do it and blow a few minds.

There are @#$%tons of virgins every year, and even habitual Burners can't see it all, by a long shot.

You probably didn't do it at the Burn though, or you wouldn't bill yourself as "burgin". :)

Welcome to ePlaya. You can go have an introductory thread in "Introduce Yourself", if you like.

Remember, the air in BRC is very dry. Don't let your air instruments crack, check them daily. You might want to put a damp sponge in their cases...

True, that wasn't at a burn, because I AM aptly named. As for proper humidity, I'm of the opinion that it is much more important to keep the bandmembers properly lubricated. Preferences, vary but I'm a fan of alcohol.

In 2012 our theme camp Freestyle Palace was home to the Black Rock City Regional Air Guitar Championship. We have two nationally-ranked air guitarists in our camp - yes, it's a real thing (see http://usairguitar.com/) and the US Dark Horse contender WON THE FUCKING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP THIS YEAR!!! Anyway, Cold Steel Renegade and Seth Liebovitz MCed the show on Wednesday night (listed in WhatWhereWhen). We're planning for it again, perhaps we can join forces or at least coordinate events and spread word-of-mouth about each other!
