Rock Band Recital Fail
Upon taking the stage, Henry, Grant, Stephen, and Griffin, also known as Rubber Band to the audience of the Grosse Pointe Music Academy Spring Recital, had no idea that their performance would be a viral Internet sensation. Watch this 60-second video to see what all the buzz is about!
The song being covered was Weezer’s “Undone – The Sweater Song,” and here is what the band had to say on twitter about the performance:
some are saying this cover of Undone went horribly wrong – we say its the best version we’ve ever seen! https://t.co/sCWGhJSOkP

Thankfully, the great teachers and staff of Grosse Pointe Music Academy came to the rescue. Thank you Hans, Bobby, Dave, and Jake for for responding so quickly! After making sure that nobody was hurt or too embarrassed, everyone had a good laugh and Rubber Band continued on to play their performance pieces. Two days after posting the video, Grosse Pointe Music Academy began to recieve phone calls from several news agencies, including Yahoo News, Ellen TV, and The Huffington Post, who were looking to share the video on their sites and shows.
Grosse Pointe Music Academy offers group instruction to help bands enhance their skills as a group and polish their performances. As it seems so popular, perhaps we should add a master class on how to smash guitars and cause keyboard stands to collapse on stage!
