This could be fun...

List for the group the kind of gig you played last. (Nursing home, club, outdoor concert, church, etc...) and then list the songs you performed during the last set you played.

I'll get it started...

My last gig was at a nursing home...

The last set I played was this:


The Wonder of you
Lady Madonna
From A Jack To A King
Could I Have This Dance
Sloop John B
Pretty Woman
Crazy
Beer Barrel Polka
Anytime
In The Mood
Amazing Grace
I'll Fly Away
Gimme Some Lovin'
Please Release Me
Rockin' Robin
Take Me Home Country Roads
Honky Tonk Woman
God Bless America

Comments, questions, etc. are welcome...I think sharing information like this helps us understand what other kb players are doing in similar venues.

Next?

Mine's a little different. It was last night for a Jazz arts support group:

Chicken Shack
Four
Work Song
Here's That Rainy Day
Someone to Watch Over Me
What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?
I Love you More today than Yesterday
Moanin'
Watch what Happens
Let's Stay Together
A Song For You
While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Kenny Rankin Version)

Interesting job...some just guitar, some guitar, bass drums; some Hammond XB-2, Leslie and Drummer (left hand bass). More a showcase preceding a business meeting of jazz supporters (during dinner).

Got a job offer at a soon to open jazz club out of the deal.

Don, I would be proud to play that set with you, and we could pull it off without a rehearsal, and not get tacos thrown at us (LOL).

Ian, nice set list, including some of my favorites.


(Bill-very informative post-thanks again).
