We will be rehearsing Thursday evenings at the old bank at 6 pm.

We are not using sheet music during the parade, so we need to memorize as many of these as we can.
Thanks!

Please use these percussion parade breaks in between songs as we march.

These are 4 bar drum breaks. Try playing 3 bars of eighth notes and a stop on the first beat of the 4th bar. The band should be able to feel exactly where "1" is!

Working Man Blues - King Oliver, c. 1923

Joseph Nathan Oliver (December 19, 1885 - April 10, 1938) better known as King Oliver or Joe Oliver, was an American jazz cornet player and bandleader. He was particularly recognized for his playing style and his pioneering use of mutes in jazz. Also a notable composer, he wrote many tunes still played today, including "Dippermouth Blues", "Sweet Like This", "Canal Street Blues", and "Doctor Jazz". He was the mentor and teacher of Louis Armstrong. His influence was such that Armstrong claimed, "if it had not been for Joe Oliver, Jazz would not be what it is today."

Voyage, by Stan Getz, Score

NOTES:
Thanks Gordon. Glad you can do the parade and could find us some necessary rhythm players. Getting excited to play. These links you sent are good. Saints link is perfect. The 2nd link version of Joe Avery Blues w Wynton and Ali is a bit too fast. This Trombone Shorty Joe Avery Blues I think is better, though we could also really rock this one as an even slower drag 2nd line Blues march. Also, A Closer Walk w Thee we can do a bit faster than the link sent with more of a straight gospel feel. This Al Hirt version is about right for tempo and feel. I will find some alternative versions and send along to the band soon. So I understand it, no Tuesday rehearsals but early evenings are good, TBD. If everyone learns the melody and the form and plays with feeling we will all make it happen. Best to have fun first, working on the music with the idea of serious play. Keep in touch. Contract mailed already. We now have the green light. Here is that Circular marching band I was talking about, for the future - if we could ever get a sponsor! Can you imagine this live sculpture for parades? How about two of them?

Some notes about Makalapua - Quotes from Queen Lili`uokalani

I found this song to be very nice for a march. It sways.

I would like to dedicate this song to both Duncan and the people who are experiencing the western and any form of regime change all over the world.
