    Musical jokes

    Who knows some really good musical jokes?

    Here is some that I found, check them out!

    • Why can't skeletons play church music? They don't have any organs!
    • Where do cantalopes go in the summer? John Cougar Mellon Camp!
    • What's green and sings? Elvis Parsley!!
    • What kind of music did the Pilgrims listen to? Plymouth Rock!
    • Why did the chicken cross the road? To get away from the bassoon recital.
    • What's the range of a tuba? Twenty yards, if you've got a good arm.
    • Why do bagpipers walk when they play? To get away from the noise.
    • A guitarist was so Baroque, he robbed a music store and ran off with the lute. His percussionist friend took a drum and beat it.
    • How many soundmen does it take to change a light bulb? One, two, three... one, two, three.
    • What would Mozart be doing if he was alive today? Probably screaming and clawing at the inside of his coffin.
    • These jokes are so bad, I can't Handel them. The make me Lizstless. They can be too Mendlesohm. You'd better go out Bach and stay in Haydn.
    • Why did Beethoven get rid of his chicken? Because it kept saying Bach, Bach, Bach (from Diana Fredenburg; Falls Church,Virginia, USA)
    Add on to this list if you can so we can all have a laugh.

    Cheers
    Gareth.

    Talking

    Drummer jokes (my main instrument- and I'm a blonde, female, drummer.... surely that's a joke within itself right? ).....

    Here's a bunch.... and there's loads more.

    • Why are orchestra intermissions limited to 20 minutes? So you don't have to retrain the drummers.
    • What do you call someone who hangs out with musicians? A drummer.
    • What did the drummer get on his IQ test? Drool.
    • How do you know when a drummer is knocking at your door? The knock always slows down.
    • How do you get a drummer to play an accelerando? Ask him to play in 4/4 at a steady 120 bpm.
    • Why do bands have bass players? To translate for the drummer.
    • Did you hear about the time the bass player locked his keys in the car? It took two hours to get the drummer out.
    • How many drummers does it take to change a lightbulb?
    1. "Why? Oh, wow! Is it like dark, man?"
    2. Only one, but he'll break ten bulbs before figuring out that they can't just be pushed in.
    3. Two: one to hold the bulb, and one to turn his throne (but only after they figure out that you have to turn the bulb).
    4. Twenty. One to hold the bulb, and nineteen to drink until the room spins.
    5. None. They have a machine to do that.
    • Why is it good that drummers have a half-ounce more brains than horses? So they don't disgrace themselves in parades.

    lol..... yes, but I guess thats what jokes are set out to do... especially for us poor drummers.... I should start a campaigne.... RSPCD: Royal Society of Prevention to Cruelty to Drummers....

    Of course, alternatively, I could just get my own back on another instrument.... let's see.....



    What's the difference between a violin and a viola?
    There is no difference. The violin just looks smaller because the violinist's head is so much bigger.

    What's the difference between a violin and a fiddle?
    A fiddle is fun to listen to.

    Why are viola jokes so short?
    So violinists can understand them.

    How do you tell the difference between a violinist and a dog?
    The dog knows when to stop scratching.

    How do you keep your violin from getting stolen?
    Put it in a viola case.

    What do a violin and a lawsuit have in common?
    Everyone is happy when the case is closed.

    There was once a visitor tour group visiting a large Church in Austria. They marveled at the Roccoco Architecture of the exterior and interior of the Church. As they were nearing the altar of the Church, they heard some absolutely glorious music that was being performed. They were amazed that they did not see anyone playing any instruments or singing in the Church, there were no loudspeakers attached to stereo's anywhere in the Church.

    Where could the music be coming from. They started looking around the altar even more. They then discovered that the music was emanating from a large and ornate Sarcophagus. They asked the parish priest why all the beautiful music was emanating from the Sarcophagus, to which the priest replied: "Oh thats just Mozart decomposing".

    Hey. Felt I had to add on a few more. These are getting good. Poor drummers though. Ow well, here's a few more:

    How can you tell if the drum riser is level?
    The drool is coming out of both sides of his mouth.

    Why do rock bands have roadies?

    What is Perfect Pitch?
    When you throw a banjo into the dumpster and it lands RIGHT EXACTLY ON TOP of the bagpipe!


    How many professional trombone players does it take to screw in a light bulb? None. Professional trombone players can't afford light bulbs.

    Why do clarinetists leave their cases on the dashboard?

    Wasn't it the late Victor Borge who said something to the effect of "the main difference between the Viola and the Violin is that the Viola burns longer"!

    How is lightning like a violist's fingers? Neither one strikes in the same place twice.


    We all know that a viola is better than a violin because it burns longer. But why does it burn longer? It's usually still in the case.


    What's the difference between a viola and a trampoline? You take your shoes off to jump on a trampoline.


    How do you get an oboist to play A flat? Take the batteries out of his electric tuner.


    What do you have when a group of conductors are up to their necks in wet concrete? Not enough concrete.


    What's the definition of a gentleman?
    Someone who knows how to play accordion but chooses not to.
