This post is part of a new series, RealJams Academy Featured Band of the Week, highlighting students and bands from previous summer sessions. 

Race of Life by Franking and the Handbreakers, featuring:

Guitar: Will age 11, Vocals: Anthony age, Bass: Frankie age 11, Drums: Tanner age 14.

The story

Frankie and the Handbrakers Tanner, Anthony, Will, and Francesca met at The Mohr Bank as coworkers. They all decided to quit working at the bank because they’re paychecks got changed from $10 bills to $5 bills. They all signed up for space training but it didn’t work out because Anthony stole all of the oxygen.

SO they decided to start a band in the military and in a training incident Anthony broke his hand while parachuting, thus the name Frankie and the Handbrakers. All of the band knew they couldn’t continue without him so they decided to also break their hands in a parachuting accident so they could leave the military to continue pursuing the band.

Their first gig was on a cruise ship and the next one was on a submarine. Then miraculously The Queen invited them to Buckingham Palace to be knighted. This all happened in the space of a week. Then they set a world record for the highest output of music ever. Then they went back to space training and it finally worked out so they became the first band to play a concert in space. They are still there now.
