King Cotton
By John Phillip Sousa
Arr. by James Leyden
Another one of Sousa's great marches. The 6/8 rhythm makes fingers snap and toes tap. The form - the unique introduction, 1st and 2nd strains followed by a dynamic Trio and Interlude - this is the Sousa trademark. Add sparkling melodies and harmonies and you've got a "Super Sousa Experience" for your band and the lucky people in your audience

National Anthems of Trinidad and The United States
Arranged for pans and optional chorus by James Leyden
How's this for a sure-fire-no-stop concert opener? Start with the national anthem of Trinidad, the birthplace of the Steel Drum, then segue into The Star Spangled Banner with an overlapping engine room vamp into one of your band's bright upbeat calypso. In show-biz terms, this makes you a "Class Act!" Ed. Note: Trinidad anthem begins in G minor, ends in key of A. The Star Spangled Banner is in A - a perfect transition.

Washington Post
By John Phillips Sousa
Arr. by J. Leyden
Arr. by James Leyden
One of Sousa's best. Whether in concert or on a flatbed trailer in a big parade, the sound of this swinging 6/8 All-American Road March makes faces smile, fingers snap, shoulders move and toes tap. So, we say -- try it -- you'll love it!
