PROGRAMMING NOTES

This licensed orchestration is based on the 2007 US National Tour which was not changed much from the Original 2005 Broadway Production.

This show is orchestrated to be conducted from the Keyboard 1/PC chair. This book is piano only with no programming. This book will need an advanced player who is comfortable playing classic rock and roll while leading the band.

Keyboard 2 is primarily all B3 Organ with just a couple of additional sounds such as various acoustic and electric piano patches, banjo even, and the occasional synth patch. It is essential to get a player who is very comfortable playing organ licks and who understands the registrations of a B3 Hammond Organ. It is also recommended to have an unweighted keyboard for the organ stuff since there are lots of B3 glissandi. The ideal setup would be a 2 keyboard stack with the upper stack being for the organ sounds and the lower stack being for the other patches. KeyboardTEK has this programming available in a single stack as well as a double stack configuration.

SHOW DESCRIPTION

All Shook Up explores a small, idyllic town where the townspeople struggle to find what brings them joy or to follow their dreams until a young man arrives with a rockin’ new sound that shakes up their day to day lives. This show is a musical comedy inspired by the wonderful music of Elvis that seamlessly incorporates the lyrics of his songs into a plot which includes elements of Shakespeare’s comedies As You Like It, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Twelfth Night. In the words of the book writer, Joe DiPietro, ‘We’re all the same underneath—we all want a purpose, we all want to be loved; everything else is just exteriors. I really worked from the songs first. They’re essentially about being in love, out of love, in some form of love, so the show had to explore love in all its fashions, and when I got the idea of tying that to Shakespeare’s comedies, which really do the same thing, that’s when I got inspired.’”
