This wedding reception/dance party standard is presented here in an arrangement for the instrumentation of Alford’s “Hungry Five” series of Polka band books. As this song meant to be a fun participation number, much interpretation of tempo and form will be left to the performers. It’s best to start moderately slow, then increase tempo a little more every time the D.S. is taken. There is no need to limit a performance to following this road map once through, be ready to repeat it for as long as your dancers are still active...and up to as fast as your players can handle!
Flexibility: The 5 parts will work fully freestanding on their own without drums as the accompaniment can propel itself forward without depending on the drummer alone for the rhythm, so that part is included as a bonus for groups who have a drummer available. Ready to go for your German band's Oktoberfest gig!
