Band Geeks: Original Studio Cast Recording released to stream

Band Geeks: Original Studio Cast Recording has been released to download and stream.

Following its debut at Goodspeed Musicals, Band Geeks has become a beloved favourite in high schools, colleges, and regional theatres, inspiring over fifty productions and popularizing the audition song Lost in the Brass.

Band Geeks boasts a score composed by Gaby Alter (Nobody Loves You), Tommy Newman (The Yellow Brick Road), and Mark Allen (Gettin’ the Band Back Together). The show’s book, based on a concept by Tommy Newman, is a collaborative effort by Newman and Gordon Greenberg (Holiday Inn).

With just nine members and dwindling funds, the Cuyahoga High Marching Beavers are close to extinction. When a troubled athlete is relegated to their ranks, Elliott, the tuba-playing band captain and Laura, his best friend, must find a way to unite the band, embrace their inner geek and save the Marching Beavers.
