If Harry Potter Had a Guitar...

As if conquering the publishing and film industries weren't enough, Harry Potter mania has officially infiltrated the wide world of music. Over 200 bands are touring across the country to promote "wrock." And what exactly is "wrock"? Why, it's wizard rock of course, a new genre that is based entirely on the life and times of Harry Potter as told by J.K. Rowling in her novels. Bands have taken names that range from the obvious like Harry and the Potters to slightly more obscure allusions like The Hungarian Horntails.

As the front men for Harry & The Potters, Paul and Joe DeGeorge dress like Harry and sing their songs from his perspective. In tunes like "Save Ginny Weasly" & "Phoenix Tears," tales of Hogwarts are set to music; basically, if Harry Potter had a guitar, this is what he would sound like. Each of the brothers sees himself in Harry's likeness: Joe represents Harry from year four and Paul from year seven. The brothers have taken their band on the road to many local libraries, performing for kids, teenagers and adults.

Personally, I find this newest piece of Harry Potter tribute to be more amusing than musically enlightening, but I can certainly see the appeal to a younger crowd — especially those teenagers that dream of someday slipping Harry Potter a love potion and blissfully riding off on his Nimbus 2000. To find out more about Harry and the Potters and sample some of their wrock music, just check out their MySpace page.

I'm so jealous of everyone going, I'm trying to get my brother to go and take tons of pictures for me. The band sounds quite amusing, i love it!

Lol, I found them in an ad in the Arts section of the New York Sunday Times two days ago. I thought it was just a cute name for a band, but I didn't realize all their music is centered around the books! AWESOME!

Harry and the Potters played at a public library a couple weeks ago in Fremont here in the Bay Area. I heard it was a totally good time!

Lucky me, I'm going to be there! My neice and nephew begged me to take them to "Hogwarts Square" this Friday. That's the official story, but I'm practically using them as excuse because I really want to go too. It sounds like the whole area will be a Harry Potter world. It's hard to believe the series is now ending after 10 years.
