Dani Best songs to get people singing? (55* d) RE: Best songs to get people singing? 24 Jun 05

Hmmm... the post-mortem...

- I think we were a little too far off the beaten path. Large crowds, but not down the street where we were, despite having been announced at the 'main stage' - next time it will be closer to the action, I hope.

- poor Janie has been sick, and though she showed up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, it only took 4 or 5 songs to shut her voice down.

- The building with the piano was locked up tight. That left our piano player having to sing with us as we gathered round the steps, but he was a trouper ; ) By the time the building was unlocked, the piano player had been dragged down the street to do sound for the jazz band that drew a tremendous crowd.

- The few who were there had a lovely time, and I think the songbook is a very good start. We brought in a singer or two who were ripe for the picking!

I will be out of town for the next, but will definitely be helping to get this ball rolling somehow in the future! That many people in one place have GOT to have a song or two in 'em.

Thanks for all the suggestions: they'll definitely go on future song lists and I'll be checking back here.

We sang: Sweet Violets (several times!), My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean, Oh Mary, One Bottle of Pop, Keep on the Sunny Side, Jamaican Farewell, Downtown (our opener). A few others: I can't remember the rest.
