First they arrived in Aliens Landing (In Your Back Yard!), then they attacked in Alien Invasion, and now they're here! They must have liked what they found because they've decided to stay; well disguised and clever, they blend right in - but the spooky and eerie sounds give them away as they try to hide among us.

Assemble the Minions was originally composed for and dedicated to the members of the Shawnee Mission Northwest High School Class of 2013 orchestra program. This group had a special bond with their teacher, composer Jeffrey S. Bishop, and the term "minions" became attached to this talented group of hard-working and often mischievous musicians. From the hard-driving rhythms to the almost comical middle section, the piece has a buoyancy and playful character reminiscent of Saturday morning cartoons.

Bailey Switch March is dedicated to the beginner band in Picayune, Mississippi. The title comes from the city's original name, as it was a switching location for trains leaving New Orleans heading north. While it was written to retain a stately quality almost like a processional, it can also be played successfully at a faster tempo for an exhilarating and impressive performance.
