We were given a school prom next month for a gig (we are a wedding band not schoolkids), but i dont know why they chose us because its not exactly what schoolkids want..we play a lot of varied stuff but the only song we do that would be liked would be valerie, angels..eh thats about it. Even things like summer of 69 or Beatles are not really suitable.

Dont want to face the wrath of the pubescent teenagers, and we are not learning like 20 new songs for a gig. Any of you guys played a school gig thats went well?

Your last job only paid you $7.00 AUD an hour? That's like $6.05 in the US. What the hell is the minimum wage over there?

Not really, at my school most seem to be into indie music, but a lot of people would like to hear Beatles/Summer of 69 etc.
Infact, I hardly know anyone that likes "fail out boy" or panic

It seems like everybody prefers rap over music anymore.

Just get a cool bass line and say some retarded stuff over it and everybody will love you for it.

at least do some songs kids will know, Im sure they will be busy touching each other then listening to the music.

My band did a cover of soulja boy people loved us for playing 3 chords.
#12
Play alterntive rock stuff, and some old stuff, but not like metal... stay away from metal... Just play stuff you think you could dance too... not ****ing beat the **** out someone too...

I'm playing a school gig today.
I'm not even kidding.
Wish me luck! =]

But back to your post, play what you want to play. You're the band. If they don't like it, they can leave.

what about

Monster
Boulevard broken dreams
song 2 blur
chelsea dagger

i dont mean to disrespect you or your bandmates, but being a senior myself, i know exactly why they would hire you

1. your a clean act
2. your cheap entertainment (no offense)
3. school kids need some music to dance to
4. half of the kids will be blown out of their minds already, so they wont even be able to comprehend your music
5. your cheap entertainment

and to be completely honest with you, i think you guys should go in there and just suck ass for everyone, just to kick the prom organizers in the gonads...but thats just my take on the whole "zomg prom is leetzorz" thing.

So am I

I would say that at a prom people will listen to pretty much anything. I know that bands like The Killers, Foo's and Enter Shikari are big at my school, but then there is also quite a big "classic" following for Hendrix and S.R.V .

Edit:

Here is how they would go down in my school:

Monster - Yes
Boulevard broken dreams - Big No No
song 2 blur - Yes
chelsea dagger - Very Well
schools out - Very Well
beverly hills weezer - Yes
eye of the tiger - Epic Win (Seriously)

im assuming

First of all: I'm sure someone who berates techno doesn't have the capacity to create it.
Second: FOB and PATD died about half a year ago, try again.
Third: not enough people like BFMV to warrant playing it at a school dance, and you can't play anything they'd mosh to.

Nice try though.
