What Musical Instruments Would the Crew Play
Lurena
For sure: Jenny will be a famous DJ/VJ !!! Look at her, the way she works at those flight consoles!
And I imagine Gan's country of origin has a traditional instrument that resembles the Alphorn and Gan is educated to play it.

I think a mouth harp fits Blake as he is often touching his mouth with his fingers in the way one starts to pluck that instrument.
Lara&Sue's Blake's 7 stories
*No, I am not. I am not expendable, I'm not stupid, and I'm not going.*

Here's my thoughts:
Blake: Saxophone (Soul searching instrument).
Jenna: Banjo (From the smuggling circle days on the outskirts of the galaxy).
Vila: Theremin or Triangle (Because neither require a lot of effort plus the triangle could be used for calling a speech or signalling the next drinks round).
Gan: Bass Guitar (Can be played with a lot of thumping string plucks).
Cally: The Flute (It would fit with her gentle persona).
Avon: Computer Synth (A Logical choice).
ORAC: Perhaps some vocals otherwise N/A.
Dayna: Skin Drums (To fit her inner warrior)
Tarrant: Piano (Refined and educated, the piano fits).
Soolin: Electric Guitar (She's a bit of a loose cannon and would enjoy pumping out face melting solos).

Surely, as the crews locksmith, Vila would be best playing a key-board?

Smile Or spoons.

Ah, KEY board! Very good!
 
AvonGreen
As Dayna was so skilled with a bow, maybe see was also a good violinist?
Avon, yes a classic Moog synth (much like mine)!
Blake would play LEAD guitar!
Zen, could operate a vocoder.
I can imagine the lovely Cally, in a gorgeous long gown, playing a grand size harp.
The beautiful Soolin is ideal as lead vocals.
Gan, in full teddy boy outfit, is big enough to be bassman, of double bass.
If we add Orac to the band, he has the right manner and tone to be the conductor.
 
AvonGreen
I admit Cally as a harpist, is a personal fantasy image. She might psychokineticly play the harp without touching it.
 
Anniew
Oh Avon Green - like the Sarcophagus monster!
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.

Just my tuppence worth...

Cally - Aluphone (a soft, gentle toned instrument - refer Dame Evelyn Glennie)
Vila - Bassoon
Blake - Trumpet
Avon - Pipe organ (it's the biggest and loudest)
Jenna - Tambourine
Gan - Sousaphone
ORAC - Wood Block
Dayna - Clapper (percussion whip crack sound)
Soolin - Guiro
Tarrant - Theremin

Servalan of course would be the conductor. Well you can hardly do much else in those heels, can you?
The foolish reject what they see;
the wise reject what they think.
 
AvonGreen
I can imagine Servalan playing castanets...rattling them in her hands teasingly, as she shows off in her fabulous long silky gown, smiling her imperial smile at the boys as she does so. Travis, the brute, would storm in with a ridiculously loud and distorted heavy metal lead guitar, screaming into his microphone "Blake!!! I wanna duel with you"! Orac, would offishly save the day, by inducing a power cut, and reciting a little Noel Coward ditty, followed by "Anything you can do, i can do better" in best singing voice!

With it's tick-tick rhythm, Orac could be the metronome.

After some thought, here's how I think it would go down.

Vila: Drum Machine. (That way he could just push the button, sit back and sip Soma).
Blake: Maracca's (See Blake would use them to hit pictures of Federation Propaganda).
Avon: Synthesizer (he'd enjoy programming the sequences but let the computer do the playing. That way he couldn't directly receive any critisism).
Jenna: Trumpet (because it would soar above all the other instruments).
Cally: Hapsichord (Not sure why, I think it would suit her).
Gan: Harp (He's a gentle giant).
Tarrant: Grand Piano (I think Tarrant would enjoy Jazz).
Dayna: (Harp or Guitar as she likes stringed weapons so why not stringed instruments).
Soolin: Vocals (I'm sure she'd be a good singer).
Orac: None (He'd just criticise Avon's synth programming).
Travis: None (He's a soldier, not a musician being a soldier is what he does best).
Servalan: Mood Pad Synth, Theremin or Kaos pad (because she could leisurely create lot's of music just by waving her hand ever so delicately yet precisely without any real effort all while being fully in command of the output).

Tricky to decide but I do like the idea of Blake on the saxophone JustBrad. Yes I think Blake would suit a soulful instrument like the saxophone.(If he can remember how to play it).
 
Dutch Rebel
Blake would play the lead guitar, defenitely.
Avon would play the lead guitar also, of course. That's why their music makes you crazy.
Vila plays the lead guitar, but not on stage. Vila plays it at the bar.
Cally imagines she is playing the lead guitar (in her head).
Jenna is tuning all these lead guitars.
Gan is the roadie.

Dayna wants to kill Servalan with a lead guitar.
Del Tarrant wants to take away Avons lead guitar, to play on it.
Soolin is the only one who can play the lead guitar properly, but she hasn't got enough episodes to prove it.

You've just taught me that the Sousaphone is a particular variety of Tuba. Thanks.

well if he didn't that would be a waste of the most beautiful lips in the federation.

That being said, here's my two cents

1. Blake would be the lead singer. he's got the charisma and the lungs but he doesn't write music. (Not Rob Halford. Rob is a nice mild mannered guy who let me sleep on his couch once some 10 years ago). Blake would be someone more intense... make your choice. James Hetfield would work.
2. Avon would be the lead guitarist (Think Glenn Tipton of Judas Priest as both attire and expression. Writes most of the music. Looks that kill. Slightly less friendly than a viper. Got his frontman to leave the band.)

3. Jenna would play drums.
4. Gan would play bass
5. Vila would play second guitar ( think KK Downing- a great player who doesn't mind being the second fiddle. Him and Avon have a chemistry that, while understated, is very important)

Cally would be a roadie.

I have concluded that Jenna is Blake-aware, Blake is Avon-aware, Avon is self-aware and Gan is rarely aware. Vila is merely wary. Cally is frequently more away than aware.

Love this thread. Brilliant ideas!

Blake could be a Welsh Paul Robeson, singing Horizon Slave songs
