Black Friday Setlist


What kind of music would you play for people standing in line for Black Friday sales? We already play jazz, and our last gig had a number of video game favorites. I suppose Christmas music is a given for this gig. I just ordered a Vince Gauraldi book of Christmas leadsheets. The Vince Gaualdi Trio is the group that did all the songs for Peanuts, and more specifically, A Charlie Brown Christmas. We obviously won’t play ALL the tunes listed, but it’s a start.
