My band is playing at a wedding in September (it's my guitarists brothers girlfriends brother's wedding, so we don't really know them that well) and we'll need to fill a couple of hours playing mostly covers and we're kinda stumped. We have a few covers that we play at gigs

Arctic Monkeys - I bet you look good on the dancefloor (we've folk-ed it up)
Dispatch - The General
John Butler Trio - Zebra
Jack Johnson - Flake
Cat Empire - Two Shoes
Proclaimers - 500 Miles
Ben E King - Stand By Me
Chuck Berry - Johhny B. Goode
Elivs - Suspicious Minds
Eagle eye Cherry - Save Tonight

The last 4 we'll definitely do, but I'm not sure if the others will be well known enough / go down well at a wedding.

Any ideas for wedding songs?

I'd suggest you'd need 2 x45 minutes as a bare minimum for most weddings..

Playing with a number of function bands myself, you need a wide range of Cheese.. Drunk people like cheese.

Soppy stuff, basically. Elvis, maybe?



We're not in the Pit, I wasn't expecting any Cannibal Corpse

We'll probably end up doing a few more Elvis songs, our singer/banjoist is mildly obsessed with him

The Connells - '74 '75, David Bowie - Let's Dance, Bon Jovi goes down well at weddings too. Weddings from my experience are cheesy music fests. Keeping in mind that most weddings have a very wide age range, infants to grannys, cheesy songs usually go down well. 'Summer of 69' and all that kinda jazz. That's not to say I've never heard Dio at a wedding, just not often lol

If it's Jim Carrey's wedding then Cannibal Corpse is a great idea! lol

A song called Good Riddance is probably not appropriate for a wedding, especially when you find out it's an f-you song.

I suggest anything by the Police.

If you want a modern slowie then do Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol

Some other more recent stuff you could do...

Same Jeans - The View
All These Things I've Done - The Killers
Champagne Supernova, Acquiesce or Stand By Me - Oasis
Actually called Mark!
