    Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas


    A Christmas Song (Chestnuts...)

    Those should test your singer's pipes. Not in a range sense but in expression.

    As for Hallelujah, find one of the many lyrical adaptations. Don't use the original lyrics. Other than that it'd make a wonderful Christmas song. I've got a piano solo open right now along side all the others I get out for Christmas.

    Veni, Veni (O Come, O Come) Emmanuel? Simple yet beautiful.

    You know? Not knowing the atmosphere of the place or anything about the style they expect or your band...how 'bout you surprise them? Remind them it's Christmas with the final piece of the Christmas set.

    Silent Night. Git and Vocal. Simple. Beautiful. Easily embellished if you'd like.

    Just tell the drummer and bass player to butt out for a couple of minutes.

    Then rock out!...or whatever the audience prefers.

    We are playing
    1 U2 Please Come For Christmas
    2 I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus John Mellencamp
    3 Rocking Around The Christmas Tree ... Brenda Lee
    4 Christmas Wrapping The Waitresses ...not an ez tune
    5 Jingle Bell Rock ...... I did not concur but went along with it
    6 Silent Night .. just me and female singer

    7 I pushing for the Billy Squire tune brought a full step to E where I can sing it ....not getting a lot of traction



    I really appreciate all the inputs .... We are playing in the Christmas City Bethlehem,PA on Dec 21 st at Roosevelt’s if anyone is in town
