I Am In The Band – Interviews

What’s the show about?

In this music-filled comedy, Tripp Campbell joins his favorite “vintage” rock band, Iron Weasel, and is determined to help the band he idolises make an epic comeback. He’s certainly got his work cut out for him with the trio of rock star misfits whose stars have fallen so far that they can’t even afford their own housing and are forced to share bunk beds in a guest room at Tripp’s house. Nonetheless, in their own off the wall way, the three stooges will do their best to help Tripp steer through his teenage years with the goal of turning him into a bona fide rock star and giving him the chance to live out his dream

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tripp Campbell:  Logan Miller

Are you a fan of metal bands yourself, and if so which ones?

“Yes! In seventh grade that was my eighties year where I listened to bands like Whitesnake, Motorhead, Rat Poison, Metallica… I don’t know where it came from but as soon as I found it I knew instantly that it was my music. It was something I loved as a kid so its great to be able to bring it back.”

Tripp is an astute problem solver – are you also good at coming up with solutions to problems?

“I’m probably not the one to say, ‘Hey guys I think we should do this’. I’m much more, ‘Whatever’, so we’re very different in that aspect. He’s so driven as a rock star and he’s the brains behind every situation.”

What do you like to do to relax?

I love photography and I got a film camera for my birthday last year. It’s just whatever I think looks cool – people, places… I also love hanging out with my friends, going to a movie or a gig. I’m always playing guitar, or writing something – I like to keep busy.”

What’s the best thing about being in I’m In The Band?

“We’re always screwing around and trying to make each other laugh. It’s great as often it’ll help us come up with funny things we can add into the script.”

What can South African viewers look forward to on I’m In The Band, now that Disney XD is coming to South Africa?

“You need to look forward to crazy slapstick comedy. It’s just a really funny show. The jokes keep coming at you ratatatat, and you can sit back, watch it and have a good time.”

Are you really a magician?

“Yes, I’ve been learning magic ever since I was a kind and my mum bought me my first magic set. Yeah, I always wanted to act and do magic and its weird that now I get to do both.”

Can you really speak Spanish and Japanese?

“I did on the show but it was a nightmare. They gave me this really long Spanish phrase to learn in front of a live audience so I had to get the crowd to help me out with the pronounciation. That helped to get them on my side so they cheered when I got it right. So I can’t speak Spanish or Japanese but I am fluent in Serbian.”

What’s your best personality trait?

“I think I have a good sense of humour and I really like meeting people.”

 

Catch the show on Disney XD on DStv, channel304.

Are you like Tripp in other respects, or are you different from him?

In a way, yes as we’re very similar. He’s definitely his own character too. But the writers know us really well so everybody’s personalities come through a bit in their characters.”

What do you like to do in your private time?

I love photography and I got a film camera for my birthday last year. It’s just whatever I think looks cool – people, places… I also love hanging out with my friends, going to a movie or a gig. I’m always playing guitar, or writing something – I like to keep busy.”

“We’re always screwing around and trying to make each other laugh. It’s great as often it’ll help us come up with funny things we can add into the script. What’s so good about the show is that if we have a great idea, they’ll let us try it out and sometimes it actually ends up on the show.”

“You need to look forward to crazy slapstick comedy. It’s just a really funny show. The jokes keep coming at you ratatatat, and you can sit back, watch it and have a good time. Now, more than ever you need to laugh and this show will do just that.”

Are you really a magician?

“Yes, I’ve been learning magic ever since I was a kind and my mum bought me my first magic set. Yeah, I always wanted to act and do magic and its weird that now I get to do both.”

Do you think Derek causes all the problems in the band?

“He creates a lot of the conflict because of his pride. He’ll be the first one to get upset about something so he does cause a lot of the issues, but more of the problems come from the fact that they aren’t smart enough to work out what’s going on.”

Do you see Derek as being a cool guy?

“I think he is. He delivers on the show when he performs as a rock star. We all have flaws and delusions but he’s still a pretty cool guy. The reason I like him is that he’s doing what he loves. Everyone wants to do what they love and he’s doing it.”

Are you as cool as he is?

“I like my life. I think I’m a closet geek who pretends to be a rock star once a week but I’m living the life I want to live.”

What’s your best personality trait?

“I think I have a good sense of humour and I really like meeting people.”
