The Excel spreadsheet below contains a list of songs we've played at weddings, clubs, and parties since 1991.

Here's how to use the spreadsheet.

To scroll the spreadsheet up & down: 
NOTE: This works on a phone/tablet, but works best on a computer.

  • FIRST: Click to tap somewhere in the spreadsheet
  • THEN: Use your arrow keys or finger to scroll UP & DOWN

To download the spreadsheet to your Computer or Device:
Download the Excel spreadsheet by pressing the first button at the bottom right of the spreadsheet. This will download the Excel file, which is especially helpful if you're a bride & groom and need some time to suggest a few songs for your playlist.

If you know Excel well, you might know how to use the filters, which can show only wedding songs, only certain artists, etc.  Go ahead and give it a try.

Variety! Variety! Variety!

At last count we knew about 700 songs (and if you ask us to, we'll fake the stuff that we don't know).

Below is a scrolling (and downloadable) Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet with a bunch of songs that we've played in the band's history. We're sure you'll find a few of your favorites! 

Since we've been together for a number of years, and we play in rock clubs, civic events, backyards, weddings, and catering halls, we've learned to play favorites from the Forties to whatever you call these "two-thousand-sum-teen" years.  The "teenies" maybe?

Of course, some of these songs might not be well practiced right now, so if you throw a request at us we might be a little rusty on it. But, with enough forewarning, we can play any old favorite you might dream up.
