Our school's African American club hosts a black history month show every February. My band would like to enter, but we are unsure about what song to play. We dont want to do any Hendrix because we played a song of his last year. Other than that, we are game for any song that can be played by a trio. Any suggestions?

My band played a Black History Month show one time. We just played songs we normally would. Try some Cream, or SRV, or if you want to be topical, try singing Maggie's Farm by Bob Dylan.

^ so no.... just cuz its metal?


I pretty sure that he means 'no' because it's a school-sanctioned black history month event, and an anti-White supremacy is just the wrong idea.

I'd say you should play a version of "Black Betty". Everybody knows it, and it's easy.

"Black Betty" is a 20th century African-American work song often credited to Huddie "Lead Belly" Ledbetter as the author, though the earliest recordings are not by him. Some sources claim it is one of Lead Belly's many adaptations of earlier folk material; in this case an 18th century marching cadence about a flint-lock rifle.
