Keytar: Back from the 80’s

Everywhere I look the keytar is popping up in bands. This crazy 1980’s instrument has been revived. I hope nothing else from the 80’s comes back like leg warmers. YUCK! Anyway I love the keytar and love seeing it in todays music. Bands like Family Force 5, Worth Dying For (my new favorite band), DCB*, and Mute Math are showcasing this thing. Boy I wish I had one.

Anybody else? like it? Want one?

    Dude I had one and I am kicking myself for getting rid of it. I played it for about half our set when I was in a band in high school.

    It rocked!

    Of course back then, I played it cause Petra used one 🙂

    Maybe my son Garrett would take more interest in his piano practice if I got him one …

    I believe it takes a certain amount of integrity to rock the keytar – not just anyone can do it.

    Joel, I think you could pull it off.

    btw – worth dying for = great stuff.

    Our keyboard player, Rod, has one that he uses every few weeks. He even bought a wireless pak for it.

    It’s kind of funny to watch him. He’s so used to standing in one place that he tends to roam the entire stage!
