Summer is approaching, and so are the cover band opportunities...

  1. Crazy, or crazy smart? Interesting promotional opportunities, I guess, and just imagine the audience that might show up. Quite a bit of an "ick" factor in the entire thing, but it does make one wonder...

    How about a '70s porn movie music cover band?

  2. Just make sure the wah pedal works! :laugh:

    Dang! I probably shouldn’t admit I know that...:cautious::rolleyes:

    Edit: didn’t read the ad first. I see he mentions wah several times. Oh well.

    It's funny on paper, but probably wouldn't work as described. If they're planning on only doing instrumentals of soundtrack material nobody has heard, forget ever having an audience. If they added a singer and played 70s funk/soul/etc. hits with some of the soundtrack stuff added as interludes, then maybe? But at that point, they're just another cover band.

    Complete waste of time, IMHO anyway. That stuff all sounds the same pretty quickly. Does anyone really think an audience is going to sit and listen to it for hours? :rollno:
  7. Sit? Listen? I must be doing it all wrong.

    The lead singer should be dressed as a pizza delivery guy.
  9. Michael Bloomfield did soundtracks for Mitchell Brothers movies back in the '70's. Whatever pays the rent.

    Funny, that's what I thought when I watched porn as a teenager. Five minutes of "Heh heh, this is pretty good", five minutes of "Uh huh, they're doin' it again", then five minutes thinking "I wonder if there's any football on?"
