How about "Baby it's Cold Outside?"
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.
Can’t get much easier that this:
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.
Frosty the snowman
Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer
Deck the halls
Here comes Santa Claus
Santa Claus is coming to town
We used to play "Santa Claus is Back in Town" (Elvis)... Just a blues...
Just curious what/if the OP decided.
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
Following this advice
The Springsteen version of santa claus is coming to town is fun
Lol! Beat me to it. I mean, what could go wrong, right?
That is really funny !!
