Set List

My sets typically run no less than 15 minutes. I have performed as long as 30 minutes. It depends on what's requested. I try my best to do what's asked of me.
The set list during any show depends on the audience. I try to gauge our audience and perform songs that the crowd will respond to. I don't normally do covers.
