This composition contains all the elements necessary for great crowd-pleasing performance by musicians of any ability level. The melody and underlying harmonies are simple but very infectious in the calypso groove. There are several different backgrounds and an impressive full band intro and ending.
SOLOS: The solo changes consist entirely of the I, IV, and V, and will be fun and easy to solo over even for your least experienced soloists.
