PleasPlease Official Band Website


PleasPlease is an intergalactic, crime-fighting, non-animated, cartoon band/group/variety show that was made for TV, but not televised. With host Jonny ReQuest, Fanta Orange ("Va! Va! Va! Voom!"), the dancing Pleasniks, smoke-free cigarette girl Louise Please, the Shadowy Announcer, the ghost of Ronny ReQuest, and the house band pleasPlease.

An all-request group, pleasPlease is at the mercy of its audience. Each concert is structured like a classic TV game show, with winning requests performed live. Requests are sent in a few weeks before each show, and Jonny ReQuest picks his top 10 favorites, or least favorites, depending on how happy he is with the band at any given moment. PleasPlease then works up its own arrangements, or "repleasements", of the songs. Winning requesters are interviewed in front of the live studio audience and receive hankies, in case they shed tears of joy or sadness.
