DNJ, you are so right. A general plan on what to do, and be ready to chage it. And----know you that you will do a good job.

"Tie A Yellow Ribbon" would be an excellent
opener.

Gershwin's Summertime would also be a good choice perhaps

Thanks all ... I've played a number of senior affairs INSIDE, and can usually figure out a crowd pretty quick, but just wanted to set an 'outdoor, summer, happy party time mood with the first tune... I had thought of "Hazy, Crazy..." and might go with that ... others like "Summertime" and "In the Good Old Summertime" are a little too slow for the mood I want to set (although I will do "In the Good Old..." as a 'sing along' at some time during the performance ...

Well, I started out with Lazy, Hazy, etc. and went from there ... played tunes from the 40's, 50's, 'deck tunes' (Buffet, etc.), Motown, line dance, just about every style ... all 'up' tempo except for "After The Lovin'" and a special request for "My Way" ... The Seniors, and just as importantly the people who hired me, loved it and I booked 2 Christmas parties, and a possible dinner dance ...
It was fun to play outdoors (hadn't done that in a while) with no worries about the volume being too loud ...
The temp was about 90 degrees and I was a little concerned about how the kn6000 would get through it, but I was set up under a beautiful shade tree and there was a slight breeze ... I also had a big fan blowing under the kb, just in case ... The 'slide' that adjusts the shading on the screen made viewing it no problem...
It all went well ... Wish I had another outdoor gig tomorrow ... ...
thnx for all your suggestions ...
