Tonight, in the car as we make a supply run for a father-daughter project:

"Daddy, I think it would be cool if me and my friends formed a band. Anyone could be part, even grown-ups, any random person. Except we wouldn't have musical instruments. We'd only use our voices." (sings) "Instruments we don't have, voice boxes we do."

Can I join that band?

(By the way, that's called a capella... ;) )

I do know what a capella is...

She was actually making instrument noises at the time. But then, so was I.

I still occasionally do with the mouth-trumpet. Makes me happy.

Wasn't there a famous 1970s band that was all a capella?

I play the nose harmonica... can I be in the band?

I'll be sure to dazzle you both with my nasal stylings the next time I see you. :D

I believe that's an a capella chorus she's talking about. We should talk. And I bet she could rope in tillyjane without a whole lot of trouble. ::grin::

Dude, put me on the "even grown-ups" list because all the grown-ups I know who want to start a cappella bands? They all want them to be boys only. The nerve.

introduce her to Bobby McFerrin's music. If you can stand it. "don't worry, be happy". That's what he did.

Hey -- cool -- she's rediscoverd "hallway music" (the term my mother used to describe the modern genesis of black acapella groups out of Harlem -- though I can't find any "source" back up her memory :>).

Sounds like a blast!

Been playing Manhattan Transfer around the house?
Most of their stuff is a capella.
