Set List

A typical set can last up to three hours. The full set will usually contain 50% covers and 50% original music. Covers are novelty, as they are not your usual "bar sing along songs." Examples would include: "Pure Imagination" from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, "The General" by Dispatch, and "Brandy" by Looking Glass. The range is wide, but it is not something heard often.
