Now Taking Live Music Requests!
I was planning to write a witty article today poking fun at Twilight: Eclipse that is released today but because I’m feeling quite under the weather, I’ve decided to make a legitimate convention update today.
I know that last years live music was a bit of an experiment and failed one at that. We originally had Steve Nunez scheduled for a live piano performance but this was back before we were smart enough to contract our guests so he canceled two days before the event and after the programs where printed. We managed to book someone at the last moment to replace him. Little did we know that the lady we had would be playing showtunes, Disney melodies and hymns. I think it was after the hymns that we started making a big joke about it so we thanked her, payed her for the time she was suppose to be booked and asked her to leave early.
After talking to our Fans on Facebook about if they would be open for us trying this again (and after having a good response from all of them), we now have booked a very lovely girl who has agreed to volunteer in providing us with a live piano performance with music you acutally want to hear. Anime and Video game themes alike. Pretty much anything with a piano sheet music.
So from now until August 1st, 2010 we will be taking Song Request for our lovely pianist. This will give her time to practice and arrange everything so people can hear what they like! I cannot guarantee that every request will be played at the convention due to time and availability of the sheet music, however, below you will find a website with a great deal of sheet music from Anime, Video Games and Pop Culture movies. If you can request a song from that list which has a downloadable sheet music (must be in piano of course) then you have a better chance of getting your request played at the convention!
I will be regularly updating this current request list so we don’t get a great deal of requests for the same song. If you would like to make a request, please comment here or write on our FaceBook wall. At the end of the month, I will give the list to our pianist so she can begin arranging and practicing!
