My Fantasy Band If I could create a band with musicians from different generations it would probably be something like this. With hits like “Green onions”, “Over Easy” and “Chinese Checkers” the Stax Records House Band would be my rhythm section. The band consists of Al Jackson junior on the drums, Donald “Duck” Dunn on the bass, Steve Copper on the guitar, and Booker T. Jones on the keys. Miles Davis would be on the trumpet, Mariah Carey would be the supporting main performer and the great Stevie Wonder would be my main performer while playing the harmonica.
The style of music they would create would be a soul music with a hint of rhythm and blues. To start off my fantasy band would cover songs like “Burnt Biscuits” and “Over Easy” by the Stax Records House Band by adding some vocals by Stevie and a fusion jazz solo trumpet by Miles. Mariah Carey would use that seven-octave voice on “Over Easy” that would make the listener jaw drop. After covering some songs from the Stax House Records Band by adding to them then we would go on to creating original songs with lyrics written by me, Stevie and Mariah.
My unique talents as a producer would make this piece of art worthy of all their talents because I would make sure everybody has a say so in what we create but still be able to lay the law down on what is good and what is great. I would also contribute in lyrics that are relevant to both of my performers. The name of the band would Gold Fusion because all the musicians in this band have went gold before in their careers and now they are performing together so that’s where the fusion comes from. How I would market this band would be videos on all major social sites and a small tour. I would not put them on a major label unless we could own our masters and sign to nice size advancement. So what do think? Does this fantasy band sound like something you would want to see?
