Then I sang Angel from Montgomery.
Shall we say they were pleasantly surprised.
They had also been ready to do Bring it on Home, so we did, and the drummer jumped right in on the tight harmony, much to my delight. Now what? Well, because all cover bands play Mustang Sally, they knew it, had a set of lyrics, and we went for it. Sung correctly, Mustang Sally can have an emotional arc. Of course, who is to say what is correct w/r/t a sing-along bar band song? It was fun, and I've rehearsed with them a few times, and we came up with a new opening to Feelin' Alright, an acapella harmony, and all in all, it's fun so far. They want to do Give me One Reason to Stay Here, the Tracy Chapman song, which I have never liked, but what the heck. I'm going to practice being agreeable, and maybe it will be as fun to sing as Mustang Sally.
Now I need to bring in a few songs. They're looking for bluesy type stuff. Any suggestions?
