From April 1860 to October 1861, the Pony Express was the fastest way to get a message across the Western half of the US. Now David Shaffer's exciting new composition may well be the fastest way you can get your band excited about their next concert or contest performance! It's a colorful and invigorating work which captures the spirit of these great pioneers and all sections of the band get a chance to lead the way. Includes exciting percussion parts which are all quite playable and yet give the music character and energy! EXTREMELY NICE!

    I played this song at Middle School All-County in 2007. This is wonderful but remember it is NOT for small slow working bands. It is SPECTACULAR.

  • February 02, 2008 AWESOME!!!!!! BEST SONG EVER!!!

    We played this song in out 7th and 8th combined band. It was soooo much fun. Our band is really good, so it might be better for a less experinced high school band.
