Guitar bass and drums. Lady lead slacker, uh singer... 3 lead voices, good harmonies.
We currently cover Jackson Brown's Everywhere I Go and Bonnie Raitt's version of Right Down The Line. The band seems to groove that stuff pretty easily.
I'm thinking of Walking On The Moon (Police). And I'll mine some of the other Police stuff but...
Do you guys have any 'resort reggae' recommendations. I think of the genre as not political, not racist. Stuff you might here at Club Med, Sandals, or in the ski area bar... We be family and inebriated, um wine bar 'boomer' friendly:D
Wonderful Tonight reggae style
Stir it Up
Harder They Come
Tide Is High
Red Red Wine
I Shot the Sheriff
I Can See Clearly Now
Yes, I did the resort thing for a few years back in the 90's.
Nice! Gues I'd forgotten about I Shot the Sherrif s it is in our book already.
Makes me remember the Clapton 'Knockin in Heavens Door' reggae-lite version.
Just listened to Brushfire Fairytales while working on a report. There is some stuff on that one.
Throw in some islands-style Rihanna songs for the younger generations. "Man Down", or even "Can't Remember To Forget You". I'd be tempted to try some Sean Paul and Ace Of Base, too, just to see what happens.
Would You Be Loved
No Woman No Cry
Red Red Wine
Wait in Vain
I'd pay huge bucks to see Mal channel Sean Paul though, or the Diva doing Rihanna, erm , a Rihanna tune...
