What happens when the lights go out and the ghosts of musicians past come out to play? They form a "Ghost Band" performing to the delight of your next concert audience! This new novelty piece by Robert W. Smith provides a creative opportunity for all in the band. Beginning with a dark and mysterious introduction featuring vocal effects, the Ghost Band begins with a driving bass line leading to a delightfully haunting melody. The ghosts even enjoy a ghoulish waltz before returning to the final statement. Mr. Smith has included optional performance elements such as costumes and sound effects. Whether programmed for a recruiting concert at the elementary school or for your regular concert, this will be the piece they will be talking about for years!
