#LinkinPark #bigband arrangements for free in memory of #ChesterBennington Perform them and pay tribute to a great artist. He will be missed.
This is not a marketing ploy. I have loved this band for a long time. When Chester whispered, sang and screamed, I heard him addressing real issues; ones that helped me see things clearer. I would have liked to have thanked him for that and am saddened that I will never get the chance. Hopefully these two charts will find their way into your band's repertoire, whether you showcase vocalists or not. Click this link to get to the arrangements.
If you are in the Toronto area on August 13 (12:30-2:30) or August 27 (mid afternoon), come up to Newmarket and enjoy two diverse big band concerts with music that includes swing, Bossa Nova, rock, and R&B. Please check out the set lists by clicking here. To review the Newmarket Music Festival by clicking here.
Whenever you travel, be sure to bring your ongoing composition or arrangement with you. You always have the best of intentions by leaving it all behind on vacation or that visit to your parents, but then when you have some down time and you kick yourself because you get those shakes or cold sweats because you just need to write. You don't need to bring everything involved in your new project, like my family does on each vacation: musical instruments, golf clubs, sewing kits, change of clothes for a month, etc. Just something. So, do your musical self a favor and bring a project to work on. No need to go "cold turkey."
