Check out a preview for Disney XD's new show, I'M IN THE BAND, which premieres on January 18 at 7pm on Disney XD and DisneyXD.com
Show Description: 15-year-old Tripp Campbell dreams of showing off his Hendrix-esque guitar skills by becoming part of a rock band. When he wins a radio contest to have dinner with his favorite band Iron Weasel, his dream comes true. He manages to impress them with his musical skills and miraculously lands the lead guitar role, in the Disney XD comedy series "I'm In The Band."
Iron Weasel is made up of three middle-aged stooges - cocky lead singer, Derek Jupiter, ever cheerful and rambunctious bassist, Burger Pitt and the lovable but simple-minded drummer, Ash. The band mates initially scoff at the idea of having a kidin the band , for fear of losing their cool, edgy appeal. But, tired of living in their cramped van, they succumb when Tripp offers the guest room at his mom's house.
Luckily, Tripp convinces his divorced mom, Beth, that the band members will be great role models for him. In their own wacky way, the band will try to mentor Tripp through his high school years with the goal of turning him into a bona fide rock star in the process. Along for the adventure is Tripp's best friend, Izzy Fuentes, an aspiringsinger, who will try to keep him grounded and out of trouble.
Tripp has high hopes for Iron Weasel and will do everything he can to help the band make an epic comeback...from booking concert tours, to getting a well-known music agent to listen to their music.
Unfortunately, the members of Iron Weasel always seem to find themselves in uncomfortable situations - from their nationwide concert tour which ends up being a three venue gig, to protestors boycotting their music because of a silly viral video that was intended to make them popular again. Regardless of their mishaps, Tripp and his band mates always find a way to come together to resolve their issues and do what they love best - play rock n' roll.
