I get asked alot, do the Fresh Beat Band play their own music? Although it’s prerecorded, yes, they sing and play their respective instruments. Their talent goes far beyond just acting. All four of the main cast members have had previous music work. Below is the cast member and what instrument they play. Keep in mind they all do sing as well.
Shout – keyboard
Twist – turntables
Marina – drums
Kiki - Violin and guitar
The real test is when they hit the road for their live shows. How will crowd react to their singing and musical abilities. Personally, I think they will fair well with the very young generation.
Update: As a family we witnessed Kiki, Marina, Twist and Shout perform live at their Boston concert. Needless to say they passed the test! They were incredible live as far as their singing and performing goes. It was difficult to see whether or not they were really playing. My guess is they weren’t as they were singing and dancing 90% of the show.
