I'm 15 and will be playing with two older dudes one night a week at a local casino doing blues and rock stuff. We need to fill out 2 one hour sets, any ideas?

I would if I could. But this pays too much for me to not care.

Jam on "The Chicken" by Jaco Pastorius for fifteen minutes and then do a medley of Rock and Blues staples.

^ I think it's a good idea.

Throw in a Beatles song or a Stones song, everybody knows those and can sing along.

IDK maybe some of The Cars. And some pink floyd if you can.

Yeah, particularly Stones. Mick Jagger's voice isn't too hard to emulate a bit, and the songs can work pretty well for a lot of rock bands. Beatles are good, too, but you might want to work on your harmony singing a bit. Stuff like Come Together can work, though.

Beyond that, when I'm at casino type places I generally hear the bands playing upbeat music, stuff that the crowd can sing to (like Sloopy said). You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC, Centerfold by J Geils Band, etc. You might also consider some of the bigger rock hits of today that might appeal to older people... Nickleback, Daughtry, whatever. Finding stuff that both the band and the audience like might be a bit of a challenge, but it's probably in your best interest to make it work, so get looking.

Exactly, having played in numerous casino/bar bands I know what kind of music you want. Sure it might be extremely overplayed, but the people love it. Plus if you're really good, you might even get laid . Enjoy!

Oh yeah. Thanks for all this help. You got some after a casino show?
