Texas Flood- Stevie Ray Vaughn
Red House- Jimi Hendrix
I once heard this band do an all instrumental version of Crosstown Traffic, and they replaced the vocals with guitar parts, but I wouldn't know how to go about doing that.

Doctor - The Answer
Red House - Jimi Hendrix
Radar Love - Golding Earring, its not as bluesy as the other two but its an interesting song to play. Plenty of room for improvisation.
Million Miles Away - Rory Gallagher, listen to the live version on Irish tour.

Crossroads-Cream
Bell Bottom Blues-Derek and the Dominoes
Cocaine-Eric Clapton
Texas Flood-Stevie Ray Vaughan

Those would be some good staples. Start the show with Corssroads if you use it-great way to get the crowd going. At the end of the entire show you should get the best people from all the bands and play Layla. That would be an epic way to end the night.

1: Green Onions (Booker T and the MG's) (there are many other versions) this is an all time standard.
2:Hideaway (Freddie King)
3:The Stumble (Freddie King)
4: The thrill is gone is not an instruumental but it can be
5: Do a rhumba like Don't you lie to me (Albert King) and just do it instrumentaly
That gives you a nice variety, check these tunes out. I have been playing for 40 yrs, and have performed with many famous bluesmen, The main thing is have fun!
Keepin the blues alive!

Lenny - Stevie Ray Vaughan
Little Wing - Jimi Hendrix (easily made into instrumental)
Smooth - Santana (He's not pure blues but he's blues-rock)
Jessica - The Allman Brothers
Cause We've Ended as Lovers - Jeff Beck

Another good song would be The Rain Song by Led Zeppelin. It works great as an instrumental.

Boogie Funk by Freddie King
