    My friend joe, (The g**tarist) his mom and step-dad's 10th anniversary is next year, so Joe asked if our band (Zagnut) could play, and they gave us a thumbs up. And better yet, we get to play our style of music... so we are gonna have lots of fun.

    Here is what we have planned:

    Song 1, start out like we are going to play some elvis song that is in the key of E so that 5 or 6 chords into it, we can let it ring and start in with "Enter Sandman"

    Song 2, "She"- Green Day

    Song 3, some original we have not come up with yet

    Then a guitar solo

    4, Electric Funeral (Oh ya!)

    5, Drum solo

    6, Teen Spirit

    Bass solo

    7, "Best of me"- The Starting Line

    8, some song we are going to write for his parents

    9, "Stand Alone"- Iced Earth

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    So essentially we are going to try to get a bunch of bald 40 year old white guys and overly-selfconcieous 35 year old white women to start "rocking out" or to just leave... either way, it is gonna be super funny.

    YAY!

    You should play a 70's dance song just to toss things up a bit, right after Electric Funeral :D

    I always thought it would be the coolest thing to be booked as a laid back band and do laid back songs but right in the middle play "Hammer Smashed Face" by Cannibal Corpse then go right back to slow songs and just act like the CC song didn't happen.
     
  4. i dunno matt. i think it would be better with "immortal corruptor" by gwar.:D

    Those solo´s better be good, or else they can be a real mood killer.

    For real! Solo anything is REALLY hard to do. unless maybe it's piano or harp, at anyrate, it's a difficult thing to do, and have the mood not drop, or have people NOT throw things at you. :meh:
     
  16. As someone approaching my mid 30's, I am pretty sure you will be surprised by the capacity of "a bunch of bald 40 year old white guys and overly-selfconcieous 35 year old white women to start 'rocking out'"!!

    Have fun you bunch of zagnuts. :cool:
