Charles E. Ward's 1895 composition "The Band Played On" is perhaps the definitive immediate precursor to the "Tin Pan Alley" style of the early 1900's. This classic isn't *just* an "Oompah" piece - it downright revels in the tuba bass line and simple off beats.   Our arrangement splits melodic responsibilities among the top four parts. Arranged for brass quintet (two Bb trumpets, French horn, trombone, and tuba). Performance time is approximately 1:50. Visit our website,, for a catalog of our arrangements available through
