It was a cold and rainy Tuesday night in Dallas, one that typically strikes fear in the hearts of bands and venue owners when it comes to attendance; however, it was warm and full of high spirited people at Memphis Nightclub in Addison when we took the stage. We have made it a point to use social media, direct contact, and other methods of communication to invite people we know are interested and able to attend our events instead of just blanketing an area or people who have no intention of coming out. The tables were full and the dance floor was rocking all night long as we celebrated with friends old and new, sharing in a birthday with Tammy, and also having special guests Dave Barnett, Mitch Spencer, Erica Cook, Don "BigD" Bass, and several others sit in with us.
We have made a decision to move into 2020 with a completely new setlist featuring mostly songs from 2000 and newer, reaching back into the 90's for a few big hits. Of course we can play hits from any decade when requested, but our primary shows are focused on getting people on the dance floor and spending more time and money in the clubs by playing top 40 hits that are current, and that many bands are not covering right now. Tuesday night reconfirmed that decision for us as the dance floor and club remained busy all the way to close at 2am!
A lot of our setlist has been determined by all the work we are doing in our all request duo and dueling piano plus shows, as those requests as telling us what people want to hear and what is getting them on the dance floor. We have been surprised by some songs that we would probably have not considered without these requests and how well they are working in the club and at private parties.
We are continuing to add great new songs every week, with tunes by Dua Lipa, Lizzo, Harry Styles, Cardi B, and more being added for our next full band show coming up at Marty B.s on February 1st. Until then our duo is playing at some amazing venues including the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo and some big corporate parties including the yearly corporate party for Raising Cane's. As always you can follow our calendar here on our website or on Facebook. See you at our next show!
