Perhaps you’re wondering why a person would choose to tamper with their favourite song...!
A new arrangement can be made for different instrumentation or for a piece to take on characteristics of another music genre.
If you’re hosting a themed party that serves as a throwback to a bygone era, many of our bands play songs made famous at the time and include modern covers performed in the style!
It could be as simple as swinging the rhythm and altering harmonies to give a modern song a jazz spin. The Wild Tonics, Sarah Goodwin and The Roxys all have a wide range of repertoire to include clever jazz arrangements of current hits
Favouring different instrument groups or music lines within the score is another way to bring out a different ‘personality’ within a piece.
Remember too, there are no limits to how you can hear a song performed. A melody is a melody. All you need is one instrument to recreate it - add instruments and harmonies to the mix and there are countless ways to reinterpret your favourite song!
