Me and my friend are playing at this restaurant in our town Friday, The Prohibition Grille. It's supposed to be themed in the 20's/30's so we're supposed to play jazz and blues stuff. Both of us are pretty good players, we just don't really have a repoirtoire of these types of songs. Could I just get a list of some pretty standard songs that we could learn in a couple days practice?
