Performance Notes

Mr. Power should give its listeners that groovy 60's vibe...YEAH BABY! For your performance, you may even want to have the players dressed in 60's garb to totally enhance the piece. The first section of the piece is a straight ahead 60's rock and roll groove, and should be played almost square. Letter C with it's lazy swing feel should give the listener just a bit of classic Burt Bachrach. A slight bit of swaying choreography in this section will add to the feel. If you're really adventurous, add ago-go girl on each side of the trio to really give it that over the top 60's vibes!
