Memorial Day Song Ideas

• Jan 24, 2021 - 15:15

Without getting into too much detail, I am looking to arrange some songs for a small marching band for the memorial day parade in my town. I'm having troubles choosing songs to arrange. I want songs that are going to be upbeat and fun to play, and that are recognizable to those in the crowd. On the other hand, being a memorial day parade I understand this might be a very sensitive time for some so I want to make sure we don't play anything offensive. The traditional songs are good but I'd like to play some songs that are a little more complex and entertaining.

Any songs suggestions are very much appreciated!



Well, for starters there's always the crowd favorite "The Entertainer" by Scott Joplin. ;-)
If that seems overplayed, many other ragtime two-steps are suitable for marching.
