About this song

Originally recorded by J. Geils Band. This version was arranged specifically for the RPI Pep Band by Michael Steele, class of 1995.

Instrumentation requirements

Full instrumetation is required for this arrangement, as melody, harmony, counterpoint, etc. are scattered throughout the sections somewhat randomly. Also, there are no parts for tenor drum, glockenspiel, or auxiliary percussion.

Roadmap

It is difficult to see, but the D.S. is at 8 measures before the the end of the repeated section. Go to the coda 6 measures after the end of the repeated section. The entire repeated section should probably not be repeated if time is an issue, since it isn't necessary.
