TAMPA — In yet another addition to what artistic and creative families are doing during isolation, let us reflect upon the family band called Colt Clark and The Quarantine Kids.
On the onset of their isolation in Tampa, dad Colt Clark rallied kids — Bellamy, Beckett, and Cash — to create a unique new band with an ambitious goal. That goal was to learn a song every morning, practice it "a few times" during the day, and record the new song at night every day during quarantine.
We’re not talking songs like "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" or "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" — that’s kids’ stuff. And these very small kids eat kids stuff for breakfast and instead cover songs from some big hitters such as Paul Simon and The Who.
On their 31st day of being home, Clark suggested to his kids that they learn an "easy" Beatles song. Instead The Quarantine Kids chose "Come Together."
"I had my doubts because it's not so easy, but they NAILED it," Clark, a professional musician, admitted on his Facebook post.
And the kids DO nail it.
Is it musically perfect? Of course not. But is it perfect in its joy. Plus the band is lucky to have the most adorable front and official announcer for the band — daughter and sister Bellamy.
Watch the video to see Bellamy’s pigtails and sandshaker in action as well as the killer performance from all The Quarantine Kids.
