I need some good blues rock songs to jam with a drummer and another guitarist with.

I already know a lot of cream, derek and the dominos, pretty much all clapton solo stuff, a lot of john mayall with peter green, and statesboro blues by the allman brothers

I just need some good upbeat blues (oxymoron?) jam songs

Maybe Jessica by the ABB? I find that cool to play. It's pretty cheery and upbeat I find.

Crossroads - Cream
Layla(First half only) - Eric Clapton/Derek & The Dominos
All Along The Watchtower - Bob Dylan, but the JH version is better IMO, and in Dylan's too.

Look at some of the John Mayer Trio. They do some good blues stuff, I know this is a guitar thread but Pino Palladino kicks ass!
Gear:1991 Fender MIJ Jazz/Squier VM Fretless Jazz -> Pitchblack -> Way Huge Green Rhino -> Boss OC-2 -> Boss DD-7 -> Markbass Tube 800 -> SWR 4x12.

Flat wounds. Flat wounds on everything. Everything is a little fatter when it's flatter.

You'll want the John Mayer Trio, not John Mayer. The Trio is the more blues oriented group.

Some Songs that I have (from the live CD Where The Light Is)
Everyday I Have The Blues
Good Love Is On the Way
Out of My Mind (This one is slower)
Who Did You Think I Was?

John Mayer himself is alot of pop stuff, the Trio is blues rock, straight up.

I'd say anything by hendrix (pre psychedelic stuff that is), and some contemporary blues like Kenny Wayne shepherd, or Ian Moore's blues stuff. Only problem is neither have very good tabs but if you don't mind playing it by ear it could work our rather well.

Voodoo Child (slight return) - Hendrix
Politician - Cream
Sitting on Top of the World - Cream
Crossroads - Cream

Cream, Hendrix and Zeppelin did a lot of good ones. Those are my faves.
