The Recession Depression Holiday Blues
A Holiday Celebration on a Budget!
In these challenging economic times, what better way to show creativity and compliance than this hilarious setting of the traditional Jingle Bells? The opening announcement reminds the audience that our budgets have been cut and the band has been forced to reduce the amount of new instrument purchases. As a result, the band went to the toy shop and bought several new instruments including the kazoo, toy drum, toy xylophone, and trash can lid cymbals among others. Following the “tuning” of the toys, the swing setting kicks off and features the toys in melody, improvisation and response quotes throughout. “Now that’s what I call using our resources!”
