Set List

Long Walk Home does not play one standard set list. The band, in order to make each live performance unique, plays a different setlist every evening. The band mixes in a unique array of covers among their original songs, including crowd favorites "Roses Are Free" (Ween), "Rock and Roll" (The Velvet Underground) and "Let's Get it On" (Marvin Gaye). The band's set time depends on the show, however, ideally the band plays 2 sets, usually lasting for slightly over an hour each.
