The next gig will be at the Brave New World pub in Surbiton on Sunday 10th June. We will be playing 8 songs, stage time approx 8 30.
I thought for the next session we would basically run through a long list of potential songs to see which ones are in good shape and which ones people are happy to do. So the list for the next practice session (on the 29th) will be –
Back for Good, Ballad of John and Yoko, Be My Baby, Da Do Ron Ron, Daydream Believer, Dedicated Follower of Fashion, Delilah, Everyday, It Must be Love, Proud Mary, Rhinestone Cowboy, Spirit in the Sky, The Weight, These Boots are made for Walking, This Train is bound for Glory, Thorn in my Side, Valerie, What a Wonderful World.
We probably won’t get through them all! If anyone has any other suggestions of tunes they really want to play let me know….
