Purely down to nosiness and in the spirit of "I'll show you mine if you show me yours", here's the set list of one of my 2 regular bands that we played at a 30th birthday party last night. It's in no particular order (though we did start with Green Onions) because we don't actually have a set list - the singer/rhythm guitarist just calls them out or just starts without calling them out. We generally play in pubs so the list is slightly more partyish than we usually do. It's from memory too, so I may have missed some. Took about 3 hours to get through - 2 sets: 1 hour and 2 hour. Oh, all on tenor apart from sop on Fever.

Green Onions - Booker T
Low Rider - War
Sweet Home Chicago - Everybleedinbody
Lets Stick Together - Bryan Ferry
Love Is The Drug - Roxy Music
Food For Thought - UB40
Lip Up Fatty - Bad Manners
Addicted To Love - Robert Palmer
Play That Funky Music - Wild Cherry
Take Your Mama Out - Scissor Sisters
Dakota - Stereophonics
Parklife - Blur
Get Your Rocks Off - Primal Scream
Night Boat To Cairo - Madness
Madness - Madness
Moondance - Van Morrison
500 Miles - Proclaimers
Monkey Man - Specials
10/10 - Paolo Nutini
Pencil Full Of Lead - Paolo Nutini
Too Much Too Young - The Specials
Mirror In The Bathroom - The Beat
Precious Time - Van Morrison
Fever - Peggy Lee
Smile - Lily Allen
Money For Nothing - Dire Straits
You're All I Have - Snow Patrol
Message To You Rudy - The Specials
20th Century Boy - T Rex
Stray Cat Strut - Stray Cats
Dreadlock Holiday - 10cc
Rehab - Amy Whinehouse

I'll try and get round to doing the other band sometime.
So, what's yours look like?

Some great stuff there guy's. Having just started with a new band most of the set list is unknown to me. Luckily I only play on four tunes anyway and they are:

Us and them
Money
Shine on you crazy diamond
The Gunners dream.

I love playing them all although I still find Money to be the hardest. The Gunners Dream is my favourite!

Here is the CaSLM Palm Court Orchestra's normal gig list
The Ring Cycle.
What we don't understand is why there aren't many dancers?
