Knock On Wood - Eddie Floyd
We're about to put Head Over Boots into the rotation. Do people recognize it and dance to it?
We added "Can't find my way home" about a year a go, people love it.Singer nails it I play it with slide.
We mostly do jazz and jump blues, but
Started adding pop stuff about a year ago. Kind of fun and goes over well.
Recently we've added:
Too Late- Carol King
Bring it on Home-Sam Cook
Dear Mr Fantasy-Traffic
Dear Prudence- Beatles.
San Francisco Street- Sun Rae
Sticking with our roots we're going to add
Night in Tunisia- Gillespie
Oh they sure do. It's such a good feeling, upbeat song, they love it. We've even done it first AND last set.
Country radio played it a lot. It's very recognizable.
it segues into this pretty well to keep the floor
learning the fiddle break on guitar
Head Over Boots is a keeper, everyone knows the song and it does bring them to the floor.
We Just added "Your Man" and "Why Don't we Just Dance" by Josh Turner and they work very well!
We do a lot of 50s, 60s and 70s stuff with lots of vocals.
Most recently we've been woodshedding: Have You Heard - The Duprees and Turn Around, Look At Me - The Vogues.
Cruel To Be Kind - Nick Lowe
Dani California - RHCPs
Jackie Wilson Said - Van Morrison
A Dream Goes on Forever - Todd Rundgren
Veronica - Elvis Costello
Fire in the kitchen - Govt. Mule
I play in an acoustic duo, mainly for background music - lazy Sunday afternoon sort of stuff.
Most recent additions:-
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, Where The Streets Have No Name (very slow version, just one guitar and Vocal), Stay (So Close, Faraway) by U2,
Going To California, Tweeter And The Monkey Man, Love Of My Life, Let It Be.
Others in the pipeline, but we concentrated on those for the moment for an upcoming residency at a local pub (Sunday afternoons )
Learning some soul tunes. Bobby Bland, ain't no love:
It went over really well Saturday at the local Eagles club Oktoberfest. Well enough to extend the solo at the end. We'll see how it goes next weekend at a Halloween party. In general I get more positive comments on Petty than anything else.
I'll pick one from each group...
In my primary group we are working on a Canadian country tune named "Bit by Bit" from an artist named John Landry. We're an original band with 6 CD's of our own.... we don't stray into covers very often.
In my classic country band we just worked up Ricky Skaggs version of "Uncle Pen".....
and a slightly more countrified version of "Cousin Norman" from a Aussie group named "The Marmalade".
In the "party band" I play with, we just worked up "Bohemian Rhapsody" and took it live... vocals and all. No need to post this song, I'm sure everyone knows it
We played this one time only. Its the only song my wife has requested we NOT play. Must have been pretty bad, since she never complains about our version of Hey Bulldog.
Wow, I'd love to see your full set list.
No, but their dad has ...
Great choice. We've been doing that one for a while. One of my favorites. Took me awhile to get the vocal phrasing right while playing guitar at the same time.
Working on a couple: "Bones" by Radiohead and "Can't Stand Loosing You" by the Police.
