I wrote this piece for the Howick College Concert Band, during a short stint as their conductor, and revised it in 2010 for the Carmel College Jazz Band and the St Peter's College Junior Band. The title is along a similar line to several titles used by jazz composer Sammy Nestico, such as Ya Gotta Try and Watch What Happens.

For concert band, in one movement, it incorporates jazz and funk styles and is suitable for average to advanced school bands.
