    Hi, we will play with my cover band at a weading, the problem is we are 2 guitars (one make back vocals), 1 singer, bass and drums. They asked us to play disco and funk tunes. I am thinking of good ones thath sound good good withouth keyboards and horns.
    I have in my list:
    1-Miss you
    2-The breaks
    3-I was made for loving you
    4-Thats the way I like it (I think will work well wothuth horns and keybords)
    5-play that funky music
    6-brick house
    8-get the funk outa my face
    9-beat it

    Can you help me with more tunes??

    Just thought I'd resurrect this thread, I'm looking for some upbeat funk/soul/jazz-funk tunes to play with some guys that I'll be jamming with, and possibly performing at a party. I listen to a lot of soul/funk stuff, but thing is that that the horns really make the song with their solos.

    Any more suggestions besides what's already been listed? I'm thinking maybe "Little Child Runnin' Wild by Curtis Mayfield?

    Just worried that a lot of this type of music will sound boring/repetitive without horns or keys.

    If more modern stuff is cool, then check out Jamiroquai, like this incredibly funky groove: (should work well enough without the little horns that are in there).
