So band camp is just around the corner, and your shows are already planned (wait…they are planned, right? If not, check out our show planning categories for more ideas!), but what about some new stands tunes? Short, time-out length tunes can be a challenge to come by – parts have been lost, tunes become dated, you and your band are bored… If any of these scenarios sounds a little too familiar here are several new stands collections of current pop tunes released this year.
Hal Leonard has added two new volumes to the Stadium Jams series: Stadium Jams Volume 6 features both recently revived and current hits Final Countdown, Don’t Stop Believin’, All I Do is Win, and Party Rock Anthem; Stadium Jams Volume 7 is a pop divas collection including Bad Romance (Lady Gaga), Crazy in Love (Beyonce), Firework (Katy Perry), and We Found Love (Rihanna).
Arrangers’ Publishing has released30 -Second Blasters, a collection of four current pop hits: Turn Me On (David Guetta), Super Bass (Nicki Minaj), Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) (Beyonce), and More (Usher).
Alfred’s newest addition to the Shorties series, Shorties #18, includes Don’t Stop Believin’, Dynamite, The Time Warp, and 25 or 6 to 4.
All of these arrangements are available via Stantons.com, and for more great stands ideas, check out the Cheers/Fight Songs/Time Outs category on our marching band webpage. Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
