    Hola Amigos! The band I am in needs some new tunes to cover, and they asked me to pick some songs. I have a few ideas, but I really don't listen to much music from these generes. Perhaps you guys could help me out and suggest a few songs?

    The band consists of me, a guitarist, drummer, keyboardist, trumpet player, sax player (tenor and alto), and a male and female singer. Here is a list of some songs that we cover currently to give you an idea of what I can suggest.

    At Last- Etta James
    No Se Tu- Aruturo Sandaval
    Crazy in Love- Beyonce
    Black Velvet- heart (?)
    Our Day Will Come- Chico
    The Game of Love- Michelle Branch & Santana
    Fallin'- Alicia Keyes
    Jamaica Funk- Tom Browne
    Angel Baby- Rosie & the Originals
    Grazin' in the Grass- Huse Masakala
    Fried Neck Bones- Willie Bobo

    There are a lot more songs to list, and about half of them are santana (please, don't suggest any Santana songs, we play all of the hits). Also, I don't have an upright bass, so try to keep that in mind.
