    What tune does your band play that always seems to get the females to shake thier boties?
     
  2. I'm not sure yet, I've only had 2 practices, but we have written about 12 songs in that time.

    let me know how it goes, I think more booties will shake if you throw in a couple of covers, this is valuable market research!

    'Standin' on Shaky Ground' always seems to fill the dance floor. We do a few bluesy originals with that medium funk groove that get the pelvis people out and about. Nothing inspires sex like like a funky groove!!

    'Heard it through the Grapevine' (a la Gladys Knight).

    'Help the Poor' by B.B.

    No one shakes their booties for us. I think thats more of a hip hop thing.

    One time, an attractive 19 year old hippie chick came up and said she played the bass. And she was all smiling at me and stuff. So I instantly hand her the bass and say, "The next song is Dust on the Bottle, you know that right?" She's like... uhhh no. "Naw, come on it's in B, it's easy." But I'm all smiling and being nice to her. So she takes this as me hitting on her. So her and her other girl friends are getting down to Dust on The Bottle. And She keeps looking at me and then she turns around and starts booty shakin and looking at me then looking at her ass then looking at me. Then I give her the nod of "yes, it's very nice." *smile*. Meanwhile my enraged girlfriend is in the corner. ;)


    She didn't kill the girl. But she was held back.

    So the answer. Dust on the Bottle.
