06 Sep Music Worth Noting Pt. 5
Honoka and Azita
Big sister Honoka and little sister Azita have been playing the ukele since they were 8 and 4 years old, respectively. Their commitment to their instrument has made them in-demand performers of their home state of Hawaii and have enabled them to travel to Japan to tour. Their videos are so enjoyable to watch because you have a wonderful beach backdrop that complement their immense skills!
They Might Be Giants
Before they were known as the duo that created the theme song for The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, They Might Be Giants was a quirky band that was a hit with the college scene. In the early 1980s they made a telephone line available to fans who could hear new tunes for free, which became known as dial-a-song. The line, and its tunes, remained in existence until 2006. Now it’s back and ready for the Internet Age! In preparation for their new album “Flood,” They Might Be Giants will make a new song available every week on its website along with a new phone number — (844) 387-6962 — and an email subscription service. What do you think of the song?
It is hard to top the sheer awesomeness of Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk.” But if you’re an aspiring singer trying to get noticed, recruiting some older people who love to dance and poke fun of themselves is a good start. Couple that with a spot-on rendition of the song, and you’ll achieve viral video fame. Seriously, how wonderful are these dancers? According to Boye’s YouTube pages that actors range in ages from 65 to 92. Collectively, they have 500 children, 1,200 grandchildren, and 250 great grandchildren.
