Set List for 60's Ensemble: March 2: 7:00: #1

After spirited debate, the set list for the debut of Old Town School's 60's ensemble has been well, assembled. The gig is set for March 2: 7:00 at the Hidden Cove, 5336 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago.

The ensemble is led by Steve Levitt who has been associated with the Old Town School since the late middle ages and can remember everything. The ensemble features Steve along with another 5 guitarist, a bass and a violin.

I will be playing guitar and singing but I'm not sure what part. 

Our first song (as of now) will be a "A Little Bit of Soul".

The only big hit for The Music Explosion, the tune reached #2 in 1967.

As it turns out a "little bit of soul" has a very Oprah like resonance.

The last verse.....
And when you're in a mess and you feel like cryin'
Just remember this little song of mine
And as you go through life tryin' to reach your goal
Just remember what I said about a little bit o'soul

Who knew...

And now enjoy, The Ramones covering "A Little Bit of Soul" because youtube blocked the Music Explosion.
