  • The Electric Slide
    Is your Big Band playing a dance or a venue with a dance floor? Don’t have a vocalist? That’s okay; you can pack the dance floor anyways. This arrangement tosses the melody line between sections, is actually quite fun for the musicians to play and if you have a vocalist, it’s in a range where he/she can sing along with the melody. Oh yeah, and your dance floor will be packed.
