Tony...
For that kind of a party I might open with Alabama's "Gonna Have A Party". Its fun, upbeat and a great mood-setter.
Eddie

GONNA HAVE A PARTY

Gonna have a party, a rockin' little jamboree
Gonna have a party, come on along with me
Gonna have a good time, everybody feelin' right
Gonna have a party, a week from Saturday night

Thought I'd call you early, make sure that you know
There's gonna be a party and I'd love for you to go
I just wanna give you time to get your story right
There's gonna be a party and it might last all night

Gonna have a party, a rockin' little jamboree
Gonna have a party, come on along with me
Gonna have a good time, everybody feelin' right
Gonna have a party, a week from Saturday night

There's gonna be some music and we can sing along
I bet before the night is through they'll play our favorite song
When they play that slow dance and I'm holdin' you so tight
That's when the party's startin', baby, and it might last all night

Gonna have a party, a rockin' little jamboree
Gonna have a party, come on along with me
Gonna have a good time, everybody feelin' right
Gonna have a party, a week from Saturday night

Gonna have a party, a rockin' little jamboree
Gonna have a party, come on along with me
Gonna have a good time, everybody feelin' right
Gonna have a party, a week from Saturday night

I use that one too Eddie. Do you change tempos as Alabama did?

I had a 5 pc group years ago that changed the tempo ala Alabama. But now, when I feel its right I use it as a opener and keep the tempo constant.

There's an inside joke at the places I work. People can tell how much I dislike the job by how early in the evening I play the theme from Mash...you know, "Suicide is Painless".
I play it very early...usually first on an outside (read hot) job.

That's probably not an ideal choice for a barbeque for senior citizens.

Oh well...My second suggestion... Sly Stone's "Hot Fun in the Summertime" is nearly
as inappropriate.

That's all I got, folks!

"Groovin" by the Rascals is a good openning song, Neither too fast nor slow, then you can build the pace up:- eg." Moondance" ,and such.
