Earth, Wind, and Firewalls – Techapalooza 2024

Hello, bandmates!

Thank you for your participation in this important fundraiser for CancerCare Manitoba! Below are recordings to practice with and charts to download. Note that I’ve made edits to the recordings, such as adding endings and removing sections, so they are not necessarily like the recordings you’ll find in the wild. Please use these to learn the form of the songs.

We have JUST enough time to do all of these, so if, in rehearsal, we need to cut a tune or cut part of a tune, we might need to do that. I’ve tried to time it etc. but just a disclaimer. 🙂 I’m working on all the charts right now and will post PDFs just as soon as I have them.

Proposed order:

  1. Sir Duke (Boris)
  2. Sing a Song (Karin)
  3. Make Me Smile (Don) (segue into)
  4. Late in the Evening (Karin)
  5. Superstition (Boris)
  6. One Fine Morning (Don)

Make Me Smile

A note about this one — it’s just too long with the extended ending so I truncated it. I think this will work if we segue into another song (my thought is late in the evening). Open for suggestions.
