I'm in high school, and I'm also in JROTC. Coming up in April or May is the annual JROTC "Military Ball." The battalion staff went with a cheap DJ for last year's ball, and the DJ sucked. Nobody was really pleased with her. So this year they want to try out live entertainment... and who better to play at a JROTC ball than a couple of JROTC kids who are in a band together? Yep, my band "Nine Inch Phallus" (it originated as a Nine Inch Nails cover band ) has volunteered to play at least one 45-minute set. There are going to be maybe 100 people there, and there will be a little bit of ceremony followed by our performance and then sets from either us or other school bands til the end of the night. We're told it will just be a regular dance and that we should play whatever kind of music it is that we play. Here's the question... None of us has ever played a gig before. And incidentally, none of us has ever bothered to go to one of the JROTC balls before, so we don't know what to expect. So what kind of music should we play? Songs currently in our repertoire include a bunch of NIN stuff, some classic rock, and a little bit of Bad Religion. None of that seems like particularly good "dance" music. What kind of music do YOU play when you're playing at a club or any other kind of dance scene?
