If you’ve got the need for some funk, this is the chart for you. It is difficult, but if you’ve the voices and the know how, everyone will love this one. Featuring a tenor soloist(s), it begins with a vamp on the Beatles Daytripper and then moves quickly into Ticket. Although not written out, there is room for vocal percussion at the beginning. Encourage all to dig in and have fun. The harmonies are the hardest part and there are some funky rhythms, but then, that is what it is all about. Weir does a great job keeping the energy alive while keeping you just outside the Ticket to Ride you know. A great challenge, but worth every minute of work.
