    Program Notes
    Written for the opening concert of the 7th Annual Northeast Kansas Total Percussion Camp at Washburn, University, The Happy Camper Blues is a rock n’ roll style blues in B-flat that features the vibes. A written-out vibraphone solo is included but the player should feel to improvise. The drum set part is also written out, but it is only a suggestion and the player should embellish as needed. The bass part can be played on a 5-octave marimba or on electric bass guitar. The solo section could be opened up to allow other soloists to perform if desired. This fun tune should be played with a lot of energy and with a strong groove. Have fun and be happy!
