Description

Veteran percussionist and composer Brian Slawson may have just created the catchiest tune on your next concert. Whether for younger middle school groups, or an encore piece for more advanced groups, Jokers Wild is a Vaudville-style circus piece that’s sure to bring the house down!

Jokers Wild is as adaptable as it is entertaining. Playable as a trio (xylophone, basic 4-mallet marimba, percussion), it’s also expandable through optional parts that can reach thirteen or more players! Listed in the score is an order of priority for adding extra parts to the trio – a kind of “choose your own adventure” approach to building the ensemble.

Jokers Wild ships in a professionally bound and printed folio which includes all individual parts on CD-ROM along with recordings of the trio and full-ensemble renditions.
