Show off your percussion section with this energetic showpiece that combines jazz, rock and military drumming with playing and vocalization from the other band members who cheer on the soloists. A section is provided for improvisation allowing both the drummers and the band to create some of the music. Great for middle schools, this piece will give your band the opportunity to play syncopated rhythms in a jazz style and will truly excite your audience!

    This isn't my favorite piece in the world. I think that if you were to play it at a quicker tempo though, it would be quite interesting! What would be really fun to do is take a band that is a little more advanced and play this at an...

    extremely fast tempo to make it exciting because it kind of just drags on and on and doesn't feel like it's going to end if it's played slower or at tempo. It needs more dynamic contrasting, too. It's a good piece, but like I mentioned, it needs a few changes.
