A unique suite in four movements: "Fireflies", "Daddy Long Legs", "Butterflies", and "March of the Ants". Each movement can be performed separately. Short poems are used to introduce each movement and the delightful music which follows is sure to make "Bugs" a favorite with students and audiences everywhere. Great teaching material for developing bands. A real winner!

Well, you've probably heard of tributes to almost everything, but how about a tribute to bugs? Yes, with tongue very much in cheek, Michael Story has penned this original novelty to bring more than just a snicker from your audiences. Hear the insect as it approaches (your trumpet section playing on mouthpieces) and a resounding "slap" as the culprit is sent to greener pastures. Add some visuals from the band as the insect "circles," and you have yourself a guaranteed successful concert moment. For you environmentalists: No harmful pesticides are included. (Oh my, that's "OFF"-ful!) (1:45)
Attaining worldwide popularity, and describing "a thousand hugs from ten thousand lightning bugs," this is the first #1 hit by recording sensation Owl City. John Wasson's setting for band captures the magic of the original and is sure to be a hit.
Franz Liszt's 19 Hungarian Rhapsodies are characterised by melancholy, great expressiveness and wonderful gypsy rhythms. No.2 is the best known of all, mainly thanks to the use of various passages for cartoon characters such as Tom and Jerry, Woody Woodpecker and Bugs Bunny. The whirling, billowing music is accessible to a broad audience. This excellent arrangement for wind band by Franco Cesarini will doubtless enrich any concert. 12:33
IF I DIDN'T HAVE YOU (from Monster's Inc.) (Discovery Plus Concert Band) - Newman, Randy - Brown, Michael
After years of writing clever and memorable tunes for the movies (Toy Story and A Bug's Life to name a few) Randy Newman finally won a much deserved Grammy for this song from the hit movie "Monsters, Inc." Michael Brown has skilfully arranged it for young players in a medium 2-beat swing style.
