A fast two-step rag from 1908.  The melody "travels" from section to section.  As a two-step rag, it is written to go fast, about 132 bpm.  This would be a good "concert in the park" piece as it is flashy, and fun to play and listen to.  It has wonderful parts for every instrument in the brass band. 

It is a finger twister, but once the band has it under its fingers, it shines as a rag written 110 years ago and captures the ragtime feel.  It is a bit on the difficult size and will take some rehearsal even for the top bands.  Once the piece is worked up, and has been "polished" under a fine MD, it becomes something wonderful and worth the extra effort.
