Re: Opening number
How about some Elton John or Rod Stewart? "Stay with me" from Faces, now that's a song I want to play. For a starter for an older group, how about "Do you think I'm sexy"? They'll go crazy if you just kill it.
My cover band used to start with Precious by the Pretenders. I liked it because it was kinda fast.
