Okay GROJFANS !!! AT LONG LAST - I FINALLY GOT THE THING TO WORK!!!
I’ve uploaded a playlist (above) of all the production music for season one. This is how it came in to us for approvals from the composers. These are the names we use and the first run lyrics before any changes. You may notice some differences from the ones you’re use to hearing AND a song or two that may have been cut for time.
If you weren’t already pumped enough about Grojband coming to Canada on TELETOON, we’ve got some news to turn things up to eleven! The mad geniuses at Secret Location have partnered to develop a new cross-platform Grojband game! READ MORE... VISIT THE WEBSITE www.grojband.com
That's right Grojfans... it's the titles for the remaining 26 episodes of season one! Oh what wonder these simple configuration of letters evoke! I can only imagine what shenanigans Corey and friends will get up to this time. All I can say is it better be good or I'm out of a job, ha ha ha!"
"The new show Grojband kicks off next week! And like any good concert, we’ve booked an awesome opening act. Check out a musically inspired marathon this Sunday, June 9. The killer lineup includes Looney Tunes, Johnny Test, MAD, Annoying Orange, Gumball, Adventure Time, and Regular Show! It all starts Sunday at 11a/10c!"
Storyboard artist Brian Coughlan came in and pitched us a sequence for an upcoming episode where Trina's soul is trapped in her car. What does a possessed car do in the world of GROJBAND? Why, go to the mall for a make-over shopping spree, natch.
Storyboard pitches historically have been done by having the artist hang their drawings up on the walls and then talk and act their way through the show. We work digitally now, so we have the guys talk and act their way through the show while showing their drawings on our computer screen.
Something new is about to hit TV's everywhere, LAUGHS!
And if you're like me, and prefer to have your laughs presented in an orderly fashion,
you'll want to be the first in line to tune in and rock out
June 10th at 5:00pm on CARTOON NETWORK. It's the place to be!

Laney's usually pretty skeptical of Corey's big ideas for the band. And for good reason. Things never turn out exactly as they plan.
This is a storyboard panel from a sequence I'm working on this weekend. Doing boards digitally lets us drop actual production backgrounds into our scenes where we can draw our characters on top. It makes things a bit easier for each department down the line.
16 year old Nick Mallory is a real looker, and get this - he’s NICE too. He sits between Trina and Mina in homeroom and ALL the girls are crushing on him - EVEN the school's principal seems to be smitten with him. Maybe it’s because he’s a straight A student, captain of the football team with all the charm of a Hollywood heart throb.
So if Nick Mallory could have anyone, why does he want Trina? Good question. It seems the more Corey and the band mess with Trina, the more interesting she becomes to Nick Mallory. He sees her differently then the rest of us and thinks Trina’s vulnerable side is a whole lotta fun and kind of adorable. Nick Mallory’s one flaw - Nick Mallory talks in the 3rd person.
NICK: "The secret to a cool lean, is not needing anything to lean on"
GROJBAND FUN FACT
Betcha didn't know: The name Nick Mallory comes from Nick Moore and Mallory Keaton - two stars from the 80's hit TV show Family Ties.
Betcha didn't know: Not only isGraeme Cornies the voice of Nick Mallory but he's also one of the "real life" composers that writes Grojband's wicked tunes. When we hear a rough cut song in production, it's usually Nick's voice singing them.
