need help creating a setlist

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by gazman_res, Dec 2, 2004.

  1. Heya all,

    I'm having trouble putting a setlist together and i thought i'd ask y'all. im looking to put together a setlist for an upcoming gig (its for a b-day party, nuttin major)

    but the songs that i was really looking along the lines of was songs like "wild cherry - play that funky music"

    the most important aspect i was looking at was crowd participation, that is songs that people really know and want to sing to.

    From a bassplayers perspective i dont mind any song however simple the bassnote maybe... so lets have em..

    Our lineup is
    1 female singer
    1 guitarist
    1 drummer
    and me, bassplayer.

    lookin forward to your input. thanks!

    My suggestion: Go see some local bands and see what is going over in your area. Material is pretty dependent on demographics - area, age of audience, etc.
