Play the Animals Flashband
Eye of the Tiger! I Am The Walrus! Hound Dog! Free Bird! Fly Like An Eagle!
Animals have always been an inspiration for great songs, and this Flashband offers you the opportunity to do your favorites! We'll be back at Pearl Street Warehouse for a night of incredible sound, great tunes, and good vibes.
Q: Can my band do a song that mentions animals in the lyrics but doesn't have it in the song title?
A: Sure, we'll be pretty liberal with this one. Whatever you think qualifies as fitting in this theme is fair game.
Q: Wait, "Wild Animals"? Does that mean I can't do songs about a pet cat/dog/snake/gecko/ostrich?
A: Nope, all animals are on the table. "Wild Animals" just sounded cooler to us as a title.
Q: Can I do an original song I wrote with an animal theme?
A: Absolutely! Express yourself! Creativity and originals encouraged.
Q: Why the rules? Wouldn't it be better just to let us play whatever we want?
A: Ever been to a theme party, and some people just showed up in plain clothes? What a bummer! Themes fuel creativity and are a big part of what make Flashband a good time for the participants and exciting and marketable to audiences. Give it a shot and be creative, and we know you'll dig working within the theme.
