My new album – Outlaws and Bystanders – will finally be out in early March. And I’ll be putting on a CD release concert at Gulf Wars in March at The Green Dragon tavern (time and day TBA). This show will feature several of the songs from the new album, so there will not be as much time available to devote to the older songs from the current albums that a lot of folks will expect me to play. So I’ll need a way to prioritize the older songs to make sure the ones requested most will make it onto the set list. Also, it limits the number songs I have to rehearse:-P.
So this is where you come in. If you plan to be at Gulf Wars and at possibly at the concert, and if there are certain songs that that you’d really really like to hear (there are clips from the current albums below), please leave a comment below. That way I’ll have hard data as to which songs to make sure are on the set list. Currently our process is basically – “maybe we should practice THAT song because John really likes it.” It’s not that I don’t want to play that song for John. But if he’s the only one who likes the song, it doesn’t make sense to take up valuable concert time with it. So the songs that are requested by the most folks via the comments (either on this post, or the one on the Raven Boy Music site (Tell Us What Songs To Perform), or on Facebook, Twitter, or any other way you can get a vote to me.
