We have several methods for selecting songs.
1. Party songs that we definitely know people love to hear.
2. Cool songs that are not overplayed or most bands don't play them but people like them.
3. Well known songs that no other bands in our area play.
4. When people ask us for certain songs, genres, or specific bands, we try to learn them if we are able to make them sound good as a 3 piece band (we all sing).
5. Mix up our songs so that we are not in one era or genre for the entire show.
6. Make sure that our songs are recognizable and people can dance or sing along to them.
Some examples of when people ask us for certain songs, genres, or specific bands and we learned songs that go over very well for us and get people dancing and singing.
