Playing a wav File

This is probably an easy question... How do I open and play a wav file NOT using the media player looking thing.  I simply want the user to click on a command button and a specific wav file will play.  The following code is fine except it uses that lame looking media control thing

Private Sub Form_Load()
   MMControl1.Notify = False
   MMControl1.Wait = True
   MMControl1.Shareable = False
   MMControl1.DeviceType = "WaveAudio"
   MMControl1.FileName = "C:\WINDOWS\MMDATA\GONG.WAV"
   ' Open the MCI WaveAudio device.
   MMControl1.Command = "Open"
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
   MMControl1.Command = "Close"
End Sub

Public Declare Function sndPlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long


This is the one (API Function) which was pointed out to me in VB6
