It's pretty cool, if even if they're kinda gay.
Apparently their old trumpeter hated playing their ska material, and was more in to the disco and stuff; and when they decided the new album was straight up ska he jet.

05.11.2009 | SL auditions trumpet players!
What's up Everybody,

Not sure if you've heard yet but it's true, with an unfortunate turn of events Luis and Suburban Legends have parted ways due to creative differences. We wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors.

So right now we are currently in the market for a new horn player. Specifically a trumpet player, but if you play any other horn instruments please don't hesitate to try out. Here's how we're going to do this! Make a video of yourself (visual effects are a plus, remember we have ADD) with four main ingredients.

First, an introduction. We want to get to know you, things like your name, hobbies, family, pets, favorite day of the week, occupation, other talents you may have, basically don't be shy. But don't spend too much time on yourself cause we want to hear you play!

Second, your routine exercises and warm ups on your instrument. Things like scales, long tones, basic exercises... We want to get a taste of how you get ready to play.

Third, play a song on the horn that best show cases you. It can be anything you want!

Forth and final thing is to hear you play one of our songs. Pick any one of our songs from any album and play the horn parts to the best of your ability. We want to hear how well you can play by ear.

Send a link to your video to slneedsnewhorns@gmail.com and we'll be watching them with smiles on our faces! It would be best if you lived in the Orange County area, but in the end this is open to ANYONE and EVERYONE! So give it a shot and TRYOUT! We're looking forward to your submissions so send them in ASAP! The submission process will be open until we find the right person.

In other news! We are currently in the works writing for a new album and we're doing it the way we want to. We're taking our time and writing a SKA record! Not a ska influences record (cause we have horns) or a record with a couple of ska songs, but a FULL BLOWN SKA ROCK ALBUM! We'll post some demos as they start coming together to see what you guys think! We also have some Disney Dates coming up this summer with a special guest joining us, Aaron Bertram! He'll be filling in for the Disney dates until we find a new permanent horn player. There also will be some other unexpected things going down at Disney, so come and join us this summer!

Looking forward to your video submissions!

BIG Love,

SL



Honestly, their music is so-so, but I really respect the fact that they're so open to their fanbase, y'namean?

I liked Luis, he was a cool dude.
And thank god they are going back to ska. I hated their new stuff.

EDIT: Fuck my grammar.

This is fairly exciting. I'm all for a new SL ska record. And for the record, I never liked that Beza dude.

I thought the new album had its strong points, as did the disco stuff (it was definitely different, but not really better or worse), but nothing's touched Rump Shaker in terms of quality, so hopefully we'll see a return to that sound.

This is pretty spiffy. A friend of mine is planning on trying out, he's really good but I highly doubt he'll get the part (especially since he looks about seven years younger then he actually is).

EDIT: Also, Rump Shaker is the only album of theirs I can actually listen to.

I also really like that they're open to "any horn"

Real ska bands have French Horns and Tubas.

I think that Dance Like No Body's Watching was a great CD. I listen to it every now and then.

Hey DJ is catchy as shit.



But I miss the Ska Ska Ska.

True. But what they really needed on that record was a second trombone. Some songs died without one. The sound of only one trombone was like the sound of a motorcycle accident on the way home from band practice.
