PROGRAMMING NOTES

This licensed orchestration is based on a 2017 revision that bears little resemblance to the Original Broadway Production.  It contains a brand new book, all new arrangements and orchestrations of the score, as well as some new original songs. Currently there is no recording that accurately reflects the changes.

This show is orchestrated for 2 keyboards and is designed to be conducted by the MD from the Keyboard 1/PC chair. Both keyboard parts have programming that is essential to the 70’s sound of the show.

Keyboard 1/PC is the primary piano book and has about 75 total patches. Those sounds include various acoustic and electric pianos, harpsichord, clavinet, strings, vibes, woodwinds, and the famous “synth flute”. This is a groove book and requires a great rhythmic player familiar with the tunes who can navigate the part and the programming while leading the band.

Keyboard 2 is all about the disco strings. Our programming includes all of the falls and other string ornamentations heard in the original soundtrack. There are over 120 unique patches in this part and include sounds such as acoustic and electric pianos, clav, pop brass, woodwinds, saxes, B3 organ, orchestral percussion, and lots of synthesizer elements such as pads, leads, drones, and strings. This books programming is a must have if you are producing this show.

SHOW DESCRIPTION

Capturing the historic flavor of disco-mania in New York City, this energetic musical is based on Nik Cohn’s 1975 New York Magazine article “Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night” and Norman Wexler’s 1977 film. Told through the eyes of a talented, streetwise kid from Brooklyn who attempts to escape his dead-end life through dancing, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER explores relationships on and off the dance floor with humor, conflict, style and unforgettable swagger. Powered by the chart-breaking hits of the Bee Gees, the pulsating score includes Stayin’ Alive, If I Can’t Have You, How Deep is Your Love, Boogie Shoes, and Disco Inferno
