Post Trio Setlist and help?
What's up guys?

I have started a three piece and we are having trouble getting a 3 set song list together. Our general audience can range anywhere from 18-50, so the music could be pretty varied. We need songs people enjoy hearing. Can anyone offer any song suggestions that go over well? Also, I play guitar and sing in this trio. Are there any pointers you could give in regards to making the trio song good and filling the space?
Any overall advice would be excellent. Thanks!

good question, I have the same issue. I do end up with songs with a shuffle, as that's the only thing I can play while singing. Problem for me is to come up with well known songs instead of songs like I like rock.

Hi, my name is Albert, Shit! I have enough guitars!

Crowd favorites from 18-50? That's a tough one hehe.
Some of my favorite "bar" songs:

Sharp Dressed Man - ZZ Top
Old Time Rock N' Roll - Seger's version
Centerfield - Fogerty
Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits
Just about any Beach Boys or CCR. People love that stuff.
Gimme Three Steps - Skynyrd (no FB!!)
Lights - Journey

(E-A-D songs)
Rockin' in the USA - Johnny Cougar
Lola - Kinks
What I like about you - Romantics

...and so on.

Basically up tempo, easy rock stuff that everyone knows the words to or at least recognizes. Most of those do have some short lead breaks for you to go off-script a bit.

Just look up Richie Kotzen and play anything. He's awesome, his music is awesome, and he plays in trios.

High, Loosing You, Dust, All Along The Watchtower cover, Go Faster, are just the things off of the top of my head.
