The way I run my backing tracks, I can make my decision during the last 10 seconds of the song I am playing and still get to the next song immediately if I need to (this is especially important when the dance floor is full).

But I do have an entire song list here http://www.s-cats.com

And if you are interested on how I run the backing tracks on stage http://www.nortonmusic.com/backing_tracks.html - also how I make them and more thoughts about set lists can be read or ignored on that page.

Insights and incites by Notes ?
Glad to hear you do that as well. I never have a setlist, and sort of go from the gut as well. I rarely see other guys do that, so I assumed it was dangerous and reckless. But then, so are my gigs.

Actually, I think it serves the audience much better to call the tunes on the fly - as long as you are paying attention to the audience and can read the cues that will tell you what is best to play next.

IMHO to create a set list and predict what the audience will want to hear three or more songs from now is reckless - unless you are clairvoyant.

What if you have three fast songs in a row in your set list, and tonight the moon or whatever is in the wrong phase and they are tired after the first one? Playing fast songs while they are on the dance floor is a lot of fun, but if they are tired and drag themselves back to their seats, it takes a lot of the performer's energy out of the song and it doesn't serve the audience well.

I can think of a number of different examples where set lists don't work.

Not that calling them on the fly is perfect. It takes experience to read the crowd, but if you don't start you won't get the experience.

We play regularly in a yacht club, and we often get the comment "You really know how to pace this crowd." Perhaps that is why we keep getting re-booked. It isn't the same every time, but as long as we read the crowd and give them what they want when they want it, we should be in good shape for a return booking.

I use to do "Sunshine". I dont know how it fell off the list. I'll play a lot of tunes that I'm not a big fan of, but man do I hate CCR and especially "Back Door". I'll have to look up "Too Much Heaven"- I'm not familiar with it.

the metal tunes have been arranged in a non-in-your-face style. mellow, slowed tempo, laid back. they go surprisingly well even at wineries where people aren't familiar with them haha!

admittedly some of the other selections do require an appropriate audience and venue. i.e. screaming dave grohl songs and the 80's pop/dance tunes.

i'll get to clips someday if i ever buy recording gear. i still use a non-smart flip phone

and john bartus - i was diggin your list, then saw 'dream weaver' and really started taking a look. that's a good song book man. i'll put you on the list of acts to catch (along with NN) when i make it to florida again.

agree on the sticky comment. anyone would be a fool to not be able to think of songs to play after reading through this lol! glad you all shared, got some great ideas. some were even prompted not by borrowing selections, but forgetting about artists that i enjoyed playing in full bands.
