This is an arrangement for brass band of the brilliant song "Ghost Town" by "The Specials", released on 12 June 1981. The Wikipedia entry on the song can be found here:

This arrangement tries to reflect the ska music played by the band as faithfully as possible. It is driven by the bass line, with the drum kit part providing a counter-rhythm on drums (no cymbals!) which can be semi-improvised by a skilful player. There is plenty of detail in the accompaniment and each section of the band takes its turn in prominent roles to give a varied sound which reflects the style of the original without following it slavishly.

This piece rewards a band who can adapt to play a style - or an attitude! - rather than merely playing the notes. It should be playable for any adult band and by a good youth band too.

NB The pdf of the score & parts gives you one copy of each part (ie only one 2nd cornet, one 3rd cornet, etc). Once you have bought the score & parts you are welcome to print as many copies as you need for your band.
