Snow Ghost Community Show #21: Mystery Band

The Snow Ghost Community Show is proud to present video and audio from Worcester Mystery Band 2008. Here's how Jacob Berendes described Mystery Band in 2007: mystery band is a worcester activity in which everyone who is interested in being in a band submits their name and contact information (and any previous musical experience) to a central organizer, who then organizes the list of people into however many five or six person bands. these bands are given a certain amount of time (usually 2 months) to have a few practices and write between 5 and 20 minutes of original material that is not a waste of everybody's time. improvisation is prohibited. participants need not have any prior musical experience, just the desire to be in a band and the ability to step up. mystery band culminates in a series of shows for all the bands that pulled it off.
