Jingle Jangle (Northeastern Music)
This medley of "Bell" tunes will put the "jingle" in your next holiday concert. The percussion section gets things going with a jazzy rendition of Ukrainian Bell Carol. Jingle Bells, with a bit of a twist, is then played in a light staccato fashion by the whole band. Each tune is played again, individually and combined, before the strains of We Wish You a Merry Christmas send your audience off to begin their holiday season.

You Rock! (Neil A. Kjos)
Based on the familiar rock beat often heard at sporting events, this light-hearted number is in a traditional eight and twelve-bar blues progression. There are plenty of opportunities for the percussion section to "shine" and lots of hand-clapping and knee-slapping to hold the interest and enthusiasm of the entire band. A perfect encore selection!
