    Well, I was just grooving around last night and my friend Kelly tells me on MSN that she and another friend have an idea that we should make a band (both her and her friend are very talented singers). So basically, this summer I'll be joining my very first band. From the looks of it, it'll be a classic rock cover band I guess with the following spots:

    Vocals (2)
    Bass
    Drums
    Guitar
    Saxophone
    Trombone (I think)

    At the moment, we've got the following songs on our "to learn" list:

    Eye of the Tiger
    Tainted Love
    Magic Carpet Ride
    Life is a Highway
    Mustang Sally

    Any suggestions for songs, or just tips on being in a band in general?

    It very well could happen, we have a saxophonist and besides the one trombone, the vocalist also plays that too. So why not? ;)

    If you've got horns you gotta do Sir Duke.

    Turn the Page is also popular if you have a sax.

    Add any Steely Dan you can. I personally recommend Kid Charlemagne, but I think only the musicians properly appreciate that one.
