So far it doesn't look like you're headed for disaster if you have 6 and a half weeks left to rehearse...

though you do need to find out how long your set is.

What style of music do you play? What's everyone's playing level?

OKay well..

My singer.. Joey Has Good Warm Tone.. think scooter ward soft warm tone... and a BFMV harsh Vocals.. he has a good range.

the rhyhm guitarist Jamie Great at rythyms and little licks.. hes alright and me

I"m Lead aka Spyder(yeah i have a nickname)

I'm pretty good at lead but we're relaly just looking for some covers to put in there that arent too hard but are crowd pleasers that people will know and like yeah

Songs that are out of the question

Hinder - LIps of an angel... way to over played,
Eagles - Hotel California
Any pink floyd.. no one there will like it.. its more of an acoustic punk acoustic soft place with some somewhat rockers there

and thats all i can think of...

The KKK Took My Baby Away- Ramones. I think it could so totally work for the crowd you are playing for.

If you're an acoustic trio I think its manditory that you cover Suite Judy Blue Eyes, but you guys will most likely not be able to sing it, unless the three of you have the voices of angels.

No bullshit, if you guys can actually play Suite Judy Blue Eyes and not butcher it, copious amounts of panties will be tossed at you guys.

Have you ever listened to that song? Its not racist and if your playing for a punk-ish crowd they would probably know the tune.

Yeah, put some Ramones songs into acoustic form for the punks in the crowd. You could probably cram 3 of them into five minutes of show time.

if you can pull it off go for Down in a Hole by Alice in Chains

if not find something that you like that would fit the genre and turn it into an acoustic song

btw, where in pontiac is this going to be?
