i am trying to work on our setlist since we recently added a keyboard player.

here it is:

Set List

1. Break on Thru - doors
2. I want to hold your hand - beatles
3. Mother’s little helper - stones
4. Boys don’t Cry - cure
5. Purple Haze - hendrix
6. Green River – ccr
7. Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight - rem
8. Sunshine of Your Love - cream
9. Message in a Bottle - police
10. Get Back – beatles
11. Symphony in C - cake
12. Hush – deep purple________________SET TWO
13. Cinnamon Girl – neil young
14. De do do do, De da da da - police
15. Strange Brew - cream
16. Back in the USSR – Beatles
17. Mike in the Box – Greg’s original
18. Courage – tradgically hip
19. Bad Moon Rising - ccr
20. Justice Sleeps – Torin’s original
21. Roadhouse Blues – doors
22. I Feel Fine – the beatles

30. Jumping Jack Flash – rolling stones

Other songs I am thinking of

Oyo coma va (sp?) – santana
Saturday nights alright – elton john
Call me the breeze – lyrnd skyrnd
Fleetwood mac
Look at little sister – stevie ray vaughn


Many of the songs in our current set list are either not that great to dance to and/or dont have keys.

Looking at other band's setlist doesnt help because unless i am very famaliar with the song i wont know if it has keys or not.

Could you please suggest songs that we may include in our setlist that have keys and are danceable?
