    Hey guys, my funk/fusion band has a gig coming up on the 26th, were just kinda starting out, were all around the age of 15-17. We are having a three song set (small gig) and we cannot figure out a third song. So far were thinkin about doing James, Just the two of us, and...

    We are a four piece band, Drums, bass guitar, Guitar, and Alto Sax. If you've got any cool songs in mind, i would love to here your suggestions
    Thanks,
    -Dean

    "Mr. Magic" by Grover Washington Jr.
    "Joyous" by Pleasure (it's a vocal track but it works as an instrumental).
    "Red Baron" or "Stratus" by Billy Cobham

    haha, yea man, The pleasure tune is a little too old school, but its a great tune. Lookin for a little bit more modern stuff. Like Stratus, ill mention it to the other members, see how they like it. I thought it was a perfect fit.

    If anyone else has any suggestions please feel free to recommend. :D
