The songs in the list are thoughtfully selected with a certain percentage of songs from each decade, a certain number of songs that are considered 'sing-alongs', and a certain number of songs from different genres.
Songs are chosen by level of popularity and how well they work with backing tracks accompanied by a singer/guitar player. There is also a number of 'novelty' songs that can be performed if appropriate to the venue, as well as fun sound clips.
If you would like a certain song(s) performed for your event that you don't see on the list, let me know and I'll do my best to add it if possible. Or, if you would just like to suggest a song that you think would work well, I welcome the input! Just go to the "Contact" page above and send me a message.
Make sure to visit the Videos page to see videos and hear audio tracks of selected songs.
