Help Picking Songs to Cover in my Original Band
Hey guys, my band is looking to pick a song or two to cover just to add to our set list to play in places that will allow covers.
We're an Alternative/Blues rock band, and some of our songs sound like Coldplay meets the Black Keys, while others sound much more like Clapton and Hendrix. The instrumentation features a bass player, drummer, lead guitarist, and singer who plays rhythm guitar (acoustic or electric) or keyboard depending on the song.
I was pushing for an older song that everyone knows from Hendrix or Zeppelin or the Allman Brothers, and for something newer, maybe a John Mayer tune or something.
Unfortunately, my knowledge of popular music is not very broad, and choosing songs that would speak to our audience, (which as of now is just parents, friends, and people coming to see the other bands), is not something I'm great at, so any help would be great.
All suggestions are welcomed. Thanks!
