I need some covers for a funk/jazz band, also willing to play some pop (not todays teenage pop), soul, stuff like that.any suggestions? a list of songs your cover band does would be perfect
So far, for busking. We've got september and anthropology (not saying they sound good yet ). We're thinking stuff like moondance, etc, mainly songs that people know with a few goodies chucked in thereWhat sort of cover band are we talking? When I hear funk covers I think:
James Brown: I Feel Good, Papa's got a Brand New Bag, Cold Sweat
Earth Wind and Fire: September
Michael Jackson: Billie Jean
But when I hear Jazz I think:
Such as Autumn Leaves, any 12 Bar blues (Freddie Freeloader, Sonny Moon For Two, Blue Monk), Rhythm Changes (such as Anthropology, Oleo)...
What sort of gigs are you trying to get from this, and we can cater a set list to your show.
Yup.. extended solos, and play the ones that were appreciated as an encore..I like the suggestions
I've got peg by steely dan. I totally agree, some of the best ever recorded.
I'll try and videotape the first time we play, see how it turns out. I'll send you the link We need enough material to play for about 3 hours with breaks...how many songs do you think we need? We're thinking of playing some twice...
+1 to that, one awesome funk/fusion standard...or anything from the Headhunters album for that matter.HERBIE HANCOCK: Chameleon
