The Club Penguin Band (AKA The Penguin Band) is a very popular musical band of mascots in Club Penguin. The Penguin Band is Club Penguin's only popular and official band. It is made up of four Penguins: G Billy, Petey K, Stompin' Bob and Franky.
Like Rockhopper, the band members can be seen during certain parties on random servers waddling around and talking to Penguins. It should be noted that the Penguin Band are not always together when on the island as they can be met individually.
Franky is the band's singer and is often labeled as the most 'popular' member of the group; as such he is usually the focus of many of their tracks. He is a yellow penguin who knows how to play the guitar, the keyboard, and sing. According to the 2011-2012 yearbook, he is the mascot most likely to invent a new musical instrument. He is, like the rest of the band, extremely talented in music; his talent was even the inspiration for Cadence to pursue a singing career.
Petey K is one of the band's guitarists. Prior to their redesign, he used to play the piano and the accordion. He is known to be very relaxed, occasionally cracking the odd joke (which is often directed at his band mates). He is a thrill-seeker and, according to the 2011-2012 yearbook, he is the mascot most willing to start a food fight.
Stompin' Bob is the band's electric bass player. He is a self-taught musician who is known to practice constantly. As such, he has more of a serious personality towards their music than his band mates, an example of this would be that he has often said he would be writing poems if he was not a musician. In addition, the yearbook for 2011-2012 said he would be the mascot most likely to 'rock the house'.
G Billy is the band's drummer. He is the strong and silent type, founding member and the grounding force of the band. In addition to the drums, he can also play the flute. According to the 2011-2012 yearbook, he is the mascot most likely to call you 'dude'.
- The original Penguin Band was from Penguin Chat 2.
- In Penguin Chat 3, all the band members were Old Blue and played different instruments.
- In 2006, they were a Hawaiian band, with little to no individualization between them.
- In 2008, they became a country band, with each member getting a different color.
- In 2011, they became a rock band, with unique clothing and new instruments.
- In the Make Your Mark: Ultimate Jam, they appeared every 20 minutes with Cadence, singing at the Epic Show.
- They appeared with slightly altered appearances in Anchors Aweigh.
After The Band did their performance in the Night Club they lost all their instruments. Penguins had to go on a scavenger hunt to find them. Afterwards, you were awarded with (as mentioned above) the Band Background.
The Penguin Band once again played at the Iceberg and met penguins and signing background backstage room, and on the main stage. They were also in this new room that opened in Music Jam 2010 called the Casa Fiesta where you could also meet Cadence.
Taking on their new modern looks, the Penguin Band now have their own method of transport between shows at the Iceberg - their own personal iceberg, kitted with a dance floor, confetti cannons and speakers with flashing lights. They also went Backstage, or to the Casa Fiesta. They played a new song called Better Days.
They would play the song The Party Starts Now with Cadence at the Epic Show. They also made a few, rare, meet-able appearances around Club Penguin Island. They were also meet-able during the party's construction.
They returned after more than a year at The Fair 2014, as confirmed by Polo Field. However, they were just performing, and did not waddle around as mascots. They played the song Anchors Aweigh on the puffle shaped stage in the Park Entrance, and if you clicked on them while performing you could get their background.
On an episode of The Spoiler Alert, it was confirmed that they would appear at the Music Jam 2014 along with Cadence. They were meetable from July 17 to July 29. They can also be seen in the Music Cruise at the stage performing with Cadence for the new song Best Day Ever or waddling at the Music Cruise rooms.
Like the previous year, they played the song Anchors Aweigh on the puffle shaped stage in the Park Entrance, and if you clicked on them while performing you could get their background. They did not waddle around as mascots.
