Musician Ben Folds, who grew up in Winston-Salem, N.C., hit Twitter on Sunday to pitch his band, Ben Folds Five, as a pit band for a Charlotte Bobcats game this season.

Folds sent out Twitter messages to his followers:


(and this one to Bobcat player Mike Kidd-Gilchrist):


And the Bobcats replied:


Ben Folds Five had their first hit with "Brick" in the mid-1990s. The band's piano-driven brand of rock was filled with sarcasm and wit. After a 2000 breakup, Folds released six solo albums before reuniting with Ben Folds Five in 2011.

No word yet if a deal has been finalized, but keep an eye, and ear, out to see if it happens.
