An arrangement thet does justice to the musical. A firm favourite with the band and audiences.

Too much fun!
From the viewpoint of a community band musician who has played this with two different bands: This piece is a blast to play. Conductors tend to wind up doing little dance moves on the platform while they conduct. Anyone who doesn't tap their toes to this has no soul. Specific highlights: Lowest woodwinds get to join low brass in playing the rock-n-roll bass lines. Alto sax has a beautiful solo. You will need AT LEAST five competent percussion players - more is better, but any fewer and important things will get left out.
