    No Chuck Berry. Little Richard?

    No need to critique; that performance is four years old, and we fired the drummer a long time ago.

    We still do the songs, though.

    Do you censor Tulane to make it PC, or just let it eat? :bassist:

    Dear Dad is another cool one.

    We just did You Never Can Tell for a wedding. The bride and groom were in their late 40s. It went over very well.

    "Promised Land" always goes over well with the over 40 crowd...everyone knows Elvis did it, few know that Chuck wrote it!

    "Too Much Monkey Business" with various updates to the lyrics.

    And--especially fun if you're a geezer with a few hundred thousand miles on you--"Almost Grown."

    Johnny B Good plus fiddle solos and rap:

    It goes over like gang-busters. Always the turning point in the show, if we haven't already won the crowd.

    Just a side note. Your chick singer reminds me of a young Grace Slick.
