I'm in the Band is a TV series on Disney XD about 15-year-old guitarist, Tripp Campbell who won a chance to meet his favorite rock band, Iron Weasel. He learns that lead singer Derek Jupiter, bassist Burger Pitt and drummer Ash Tyler haven't had a big gig in years and now live out of their tour van. Tripp asks to join their band after their original lead guitarist, Bleed broke up with them. They say no at first but after showing them his guitar playing skill, and convincing his single mom into letting them live with them, they accept. Tripp is also taking point on securing new gigs for Iron Weasel and trying to make them popular again.But yeah, the thing about Derek, Burger and Ash, they're lazy, shallow, stupid (mainly Ash) and incredibly childish. Tripp's best friend, Izzy Fuentes, an aspiring singer and borderline-obsessive rock fan, can help the situation or make things worse. Add to the fact that most of Tripp's ambitious plans for Iron Weasel backfire and Hilarity Ensues. It is chronologically the sixth and most recent series in the DCLAU. Has a Cross Over episode with The Suite Life on Deck.Only lasted two seasons and was cancelled due to low ratings.The main cast:
Tripp Campbell (Logan Miller)
Burger Pitt (Greg Baker)
Ash Tyler (Stephen Full)
Derek Jupiter (Steve Valentine)
Izzy Fuentes (Caitlyn Taylor Love)
This show provides examples of...
Absentee Actor: Caitlyn Taylor Love (Izzy) is the only cast member who has been absent from some episodes.
Determinator: Tripp, who is probably the most committed into making Iron Weasel a success again.
Didn't Think This Through: In "Weasels on a Plane" when after Iron Weasel have a serious falling out after a nasty plane crash, Ash rents another plane for them all to go up in so they can work together as friends in landing it, though Ash didn't realize that he was also putting his own life at risk until Tripp pointed it out.
Tripp: Our friendship means more to him than his own personal safety!
Fun fact: The pilot episode, "Weasels in the House", aired on Black Friday of 2009, then Big Time Rush had its first episode (which was a two-parter) the next day. Later, both had their second episode on Martin Luther King Day of 2010.
Not so Above It All: Tripp is the most responsible member of the band by far, but he's still a teenager and does act immature at times. An example was when Derek, Burger, and Ash lost all their money to support elderly while they were taking skydiving lessons in "Geezers Rock".
