Youâ€™ll have to bring in the trash for this hard-driving number! The piece employs both rock and introductory Afro-Cuban styles, but with a twist: percussionists perform on optional "junkyard" instruments such as 5-gallon buckets and plastic garbage cans and lids. A spirited middle section invites other band members to get into the act too. This one will be the bandâ€™s favorite and bring the house down at your concert!
