    ZZ Top is a good choice for a three piece band. We do Tush, LaGrange and Pearl Necklace. People usually dance to all three of those. Some Kind of Wonderful by Grand Funk and Mustang Sally are also danceable songs that you could pull off easily.

    It doesn't really matter which songs you play so much as how you play them.

    Lots of people like The Killers nowadays, and they're a four piece band so you could pull off lots of their songs. I'm sure that'll get people dancing.

    Anything Jimi Hendrix Experience, Led Zeppelin, Wolfmother, Red Hot Chili Peppers should be good.

    Good Luck
