New Novelty Numbers Perfect for Summer Band Concerts Tuesday, April 24, 2012
The summer concert season is almost upon us, and in addition to pop and Broadway arrangements, patriotic selections, and standard marches, what would a concert in the park be without a fun novelty piece? Stanton’s is pleased to recommend the following new novelty numbers that are sure to entertain both your audience and your band!
Add a little spice to your program with the snappy, 1910 Chili Sauce Rag written by H.A. Fischler of the famous Repasz Band. It was discovered by Dr. Nicholas Contorno through his association with Windjammers Unlimited, the Circus Music Historical Society.
One of the most famous band novelty pieces ever written, Henry Fillmore’s playful Lassus Trombone is now presented in a meticulously edited, definitive version as an Authentic Fillmore Edition. This one is sure to be fun for your trombonists and audience alike!
Henry Mancini’s movie music is an American staple. Feature your entire clarinet section, just a few players, or your best soloist with this gem that underscored the climactic pie fight scene in The Great Race, Pie in the Face Polka – pies not included.
Lastly, your trombones will alternate between playing melodic material and providing humorous fills, taking full advantage of the glissando (of course), in Chris Sharp’s rip-roarin’ arrangement of the famous Tiger Rag!
