This is fantastic! I laughed my head off the first time I heard this. Imagine Bubble Bobble played live by a Salvation Army band and you're getting close. Not a great recording, nor great technically, but top marks for the arrangement, the originality and simply having the nerve to make this happen!

HA HA!!! welcome to the perhaps-a-doobie band. This is just magnificent and for one reason and one reason only, for being completely different and being completely original. Arranged by the Hampshire Regional High School, haha! i never did this in band practice!!!! but then i never went to band practice ;)

This tune actually escaped me first time around and if it wasn't for some wise words from some of the reviewers i would have missed this. Now thats what i call entertainment!

This is a really cool cover =) Getting a whole band to cover it, it sounds really cool and well arranged. It actually suits quite nicely for a band style like that too.

Nice work indeed, truly a different approach to remixes!

Now this is damn funny. I wonder how it got made. Maybe the band conductor is a C64 fan. This is the kind of stuff that just doesn't happen, because getting that many "ordinary" people (not that we C64 fans are all complete freaks) to play C64 tunes is all but impossible.

One thing noone have mentioned is that this is not just a remix of Bubble Bobble, but also of New Zealand Story. I think this is important since it is the ONLY New Zealand Story remix at RKO, although hard to find since all its information relates to Bubble Bobble only.

Brilliant! Absolutely love this! Wonder who's in the audience as they seem to be loving it too! Main theme accurately reproduced with lots of humour - then we have the invincibility music (which gets a big cheer) followed by the New Zealand story ingame music Great stuff and a lot of fun!!
