The Band

Daddy Steve:  Ever since their debut last November, the Gregoropolis band has been practicing regularly.  As band leader Bowie likes to remind them, you can't make it in the music business without hard work.

Bowie: Okay, everybody, great session!  Let's wrap it up for today.
Rolf: Gut!  I haff a cramp in my hand.

Bowie: We really need to come up with a proper name for our group.
Gavin: Well, Daddy Steve calls us his 'little virtuosos.'
Valerie: Daddy Steve says funny things sometimes.  Have you ever noticed how he calls a movie theater the 'show house'?
Sebastian: Old people call things by weird names.
Rolf: I luff Daddy Steve.

Bowie: I've got it!  We'll call ourselves 'The Bowie Five'.  You know, like The Dave Clark Five.
Gavin: Why?
Bowie:  Obviously, because there are five of us!
Gavin: No, I mean, why Bowie Five?
Bowie: Because, well, uh, you know, I'm kind of a big deal!

Valerie: Just a minute!  If I'm not mistaken, Dave Clark was the drummer so it stands to reason that since I'm the drummer, we should be 'The Valerie Five'.

Valerie: As Patrick would say, it's only logical.
Bowie: Yeah, well, logic isn't all it's cracked up to be.  Alright, we can be 'The Valerie Five'.
Rolf: Yay!

Sebastian: "Logic isn't all it's cracked up to be?"  Nice comeback.  >snort<
Bowie: She caught me off-guard!  Anyway, I had to give in; I think she's sweet on me!

wow, I can't believe how easily Valerie got her way! Lucky girl!!

Alas Bowie was way too slow there and a bit of a pushover! Giving in because he thinks she's sweet on him...

Great name for the band! Maybe they can learn to play “Valeri” by the Monkees. Davy Jones was the lead singer and the girls sure did swoon, including me!

“Valleri I love my Valleri
There's a girl I know who makes me feel so good
And I wouldn't live without her, even if I could
They call her Valleri…” 😊xxx

Thanks Ginger. That's one of my favorite Monkee's songs; one that I think really showed the world that musically they were a force to be reckoned with. Yes, I think the band will definitely have to add that one to their repertoire.

Just goes to show how powerful LOVE (or in this young case being sweet on someone) is here!
Perhaps Witney Houston's song 'The Power of a Woman' should also be added to their song list.
