My gigs second half set......

...I sing in the clubs on a weekend (the workies clubs that is!) and I need a new second half as I have decided my current one is absolutely shoite. Now...I'm making a presumption that at least some of you might go to "the club" on a weekend.

Anybody got any suggestions...I need stuff that women are going to dance to.

My current set has a couple of boyzone, Peter Andre, Backstreet Boys, Motown medley, Couple of bee gees, Tavares, S Club, Robbie and Ronan and it just doesn't seems to cut it anymore. I need something with a bit more oomph and a bit more up to date.

....and I have have got to be capable of either buying the backing tracks or making a half decent stab of doing them myself.

Thinking caps on please..

A bit of Einsturzende Neubaten normally gets them up there.

'fao Scubahood' should do the trick ....

Put a tribute to Peters and Lee together and see them bookings roll in.

Details, details. It's about time Lenny and Di were given the Fender Stratocaster treatment anyroad.

Whatever happened to them? Are they still appearing on the ends of piers at places like Great Yarmouth? And whither Clodagh Rodgers? Disappeared without trace.

Think Lenny shuffled off this mortal a couple of years back. Hang on though, you've just given me an idea...



*Janet, get me Di Lee and Clodagh Rodgers' agents on the 'phone*

All the women I know love the Scissor Sisters. Give "Take Your Mama" a whirl.

re: My gigs second half set......

What equipment do you use for doing the backing tracks? Just interested that's all.

Try singing Rabbit by Chas and Dave on your own.

Bet you can't do the end bit.

re: My gigs second half set......

Songs that work well in clubs i reckon are :
Anything by Niel Diamond
take me out by franz ferdinand has potential,
gimmie all your lovin' - zz top
it's a start and you did say you wanted something with a bit of oomph.

re: My gigs second half set......

good so far..

Maroon 5 definately and my covers band that I'm in do Scissor sister so I'll get them to record a backing track. Franz Ferdinand has potential too..

as for what I use.....I've got a home Pro Tools setup with a korg NX5, a roland drum kit, bass and guitars...haven't really used it in anger yet though!
