you're playing umbrella live in a pub? It had better be a hard rock cover or you're gonna get a bottle whipped at you by some old biker

If you're playing in a pub, half those songs should not be on there. Of course, that all depends on where you're from, you need to figure out what music sells well in that area and what doesn't. The pub I like to go to has cover bands, but they usually only cover one band, and it attracts people who like the originals in there to hear how the covers are.

In essence, if you're going to do a cover band, you want to cover maybe one or two bands and give people the experience of seeing a concert with those bands. If you cover multiple bands/artists, make your versions original and innovative, instead of just playing the original, and maybe throw in some of your own songs as well.

You've watched 'Blues Brothers' too many times!

So if you're gonna playing in pub: Rock'n'Roll (Led Zep), AC/DC stuff, good old rock'n'roll songs (you know... Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis), some Deep Purple and maybe blues/rythm'n'blues. Songs who people like.
