We are playing our first shows as a new band from next week. Its a mix of Surf, neo-swing, rockabilly etc...besides the core five members (two guitars, keys, bass and drums) we have a four piece horn section also ( Alto, tenor, trumpet and trombone) so its like a small big band. Here's how i've planned the twenty two songs into two sets.

SET 1

1. Hawaii 5.0 theme
2. Forty miles of bad road- Duane eddy
3. Old time RnR- Bob Seger
4. Rock this town- Stray cats
5. It's still RnR to me- Billy Joel
6. Zoot Suit riot- Cherry poppin daddies
7. Apache- Shadows
8. Sensitive Kind - JJ Cale (santana version)
9. Walk dont run- Ventures
10. I'd rather go blind- Etta james
11. Summertime Blues- Stray cats version
12. King of Swing- Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

SET 2

1. Misirlou- Dick Dale
2. Surf Rider- Lively ones
3. Jailhouse Rock- Blues Bros version
4. King Cry baby- Cry Baby theme
5. Tainted Love- Imelda may
6. Pretzel Logic- Steely Dan
7. Tequila- Champs
8. Stray Cat Strut- Stray cats
9. Everybody- Blues Bros
10.The Dirty Boogie- Brian Setzer Orchestra

I'm not too sure if this is a good arrangement. Can someone please suggest a better arrangement of these songs. Something that gradually builds up, peaks and ends with the audience screaming for encore!
Thank you!

I'd add a slow song like Sleepwalk after the first four songs in the first set. Probably move a song or two to the second set to balance the two sets. Unless the time is about the same.

I like the material. Your surf stuff is quite cool. I really don't see anything wrong with the order. Maybe a slow one like Jack suggests. Sleep walk is a favorite of mine to play. A slow blues would work too. Maybe a little "Thrill is Gone"?

I'd just do three songs at a time before a breather. End one and count the next one off. The exception may be after the first song. Check tuning, levels etc. but keep that short.

Again. nice mix of material. What about Pipeline by the Chantays. Always a crowd pleaser and warms them up to the surf thing.

My band has 4 horns also and we've found it a good idea to get feedback from the horn section. They often times will want to give their lips a break between the songs with really intense horn arrangements.

So maybe move Apache to number 5 and Billy Joel to number 7?

Are your prayer beads maple or rosewood?

I'm not sure which one has more energy, I might slide Rock this Town to the last song of Set #1.
We always ended our sets with our 'most popular' songs...both so we could go all out before taking a break, and then giving the crowd a reason to come back.
My 80's band ended sets with My Sharona and Surrender by Cheap Trick. Always high points for us and the crowd!

"Play Stairway to Heaven but sing Gilligan's Island over it."

My punk band used to crunch up GI to the tune of Amazing Grace; the audiences LOVED it!
