One of my favorite things is getting to play in the pit orchestras for musicals. I’ve been lucky to be able to do a few really great ones over the years and it’s always a lot of fun working on the shows with the casts.
It’s been a little while since I’ve been able to do one. I have to turn a lot of them down due to other calendar conflicts, etc. Bummer for me.
When I got the chance to play in the local production of Monty Python’s “Spamalot”, well I just cleared everything to do it.
Great comedy and fun music and Monty Python is one of my favorites! This thing has calls for 5 different guitars, a banjo, a ukelele and I even tuned a 15 course renaissance tenor lute (I’m not playing that!) I wanted to include a photo of my “rig” in the pit, but hey… it’s dark down there.
I can’t wait!
If you’re around the big city, come see this show!
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls? Experience one of the greatest Tony Award winning, Broadway musicals of the modern age!
