    Hokey Dance Music

    Well, I was reviewing some of my older work, and was shocked at all the stupid errors I found in one group of scores. I corrected the errors, uploaded new scores and mp3, and now I like them again, even though they are really hokey and corney. This kind of music was still liked when I was a teenager, but we weren't called teenagers then. I didn't even hear the term until I had ceased being one.


    Two of the pieces, my favorites of the bunch I just revised (again!). Made with Sonar, Sibelius, GPO Steinway.

    Superb! I love a good polka. Well written polkas are hard to come by and this certainly well written. You should consider setting it to a polka band.

    Thanks. I thought about the band arrangement, and have not cast the idea aside yet.

    Aw go for it. Doesn't have to sound like Lawrence Welk you know. In fact, an anti-Welk Welk sound would suit it well.
