My rock band

Postby josta59 » Fri Jun 02, 2017 2:42 pm

I don't think I ever mentioned in the forum that I joined a new rock band in Columbus called Trigger PoYnt last fall as lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist. We've already been through a couple of bassists, but now we're finally in a place where we're ready to play on stage. We'll probably do that in about three weeks at an open-mic night in my town. It'll be my first time playing on stage with my own band. It's a long-time dream for me that's finally coming true, so I'm pretty ecstatic.

I know someone will probably ask what kind of music we play, so here are the songs we'll be playing for our first open-mic night. We plan to play mostly original music eventually, but it's easier starting out with other people's music.

Queen - "Tie Your Mother Down"
The Beatles - "Come Together" (Aerosmith style)
Sweet - "Fox on the Run" (Ace Frehley style) (as recently heard on ads for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2)
Judas Priest - "Headed Out to the Highway"
Mountain - "Mississippi Queen" (I prefer the Ozzy Osbourne version)
Stone Temple Pilots - "Interstate Love Song"

The hardest part for me has been memorizing all those lyrics. And we've been working on several other songs, too! It's probably keeping my brain young. :lol:

Good for you, a good choice of music as well.

Let us know how it goes.
