Question Please help my band out...

Guys and gals, I need some help.

To make ends meat in the area I live in, my band plays cover music and is a classic rock/ jam band with some psychedelic overtones. We play songs by Pink Floyd, The Who, The Beatles, The Stones, Steely Dan, Chicago, Cream, The Dead, The Doors, Buffalo Springfield, etc, etc...

Anyway, I've been trying to think of other stuff we can add and am drawing a huge blank. As a rule, we usually try and stay away from playing the typical bar band songs...

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Here's an expample of what we kind of do and sound like.

Acie, if you're looking to add some "cover" songs into your repetoire, i'd consider doing some Sonics. That shit would work well for any crowd.

specifically "psycho", "strychnine," or my favorite "have love will travel."

BTW. the sonics did some pretty kick ass covers themselves "walk the dog, roll over beethoven, etc"

What about some Love? The Doors might not have existed had it not been for Love. Maybe Alone Again Or. Or Signed DC. Or Hey Joe.

Would MC5 work at all? Kick Out the Jams?
