It was time to dust off the guitar tonight after the busy Wedding DJ period and get back to basics with a personal Live music session in Barwick in Elmet.

On arrival, the bar was already hustling with activity and good advertising meant that the local gig goers were already in place.

With a huge selection of beers and ales to choose from as well as a fantastic new menu, it’s well worth a venture to this idyllic village pub.

I kept with a simple but effective setup with sound activated lighting system, white glowing podium for the mixer and a simple active linear sound system.

Here’s my set list for the first spot. 45 mins long and a real mix of music from many genres, specifically created to capture the ear of every person in the room.

  • Ho Hey – The Lumineers
  • The Kinks – Sunny afternoon
  • Van Morrison – Brown eyed girl
  • Coldplay – Adventure of a lifetime 
  • Drake – Hold on, were going home
  • Robbie Williams – Love Supreme 
  • George Ezra – Blame it on me
  • Radiohead – Karma police
  • Queen – Break free
  • Erasure – little respect
  • Amy Winehouse- Valerie

As the dance floor filled for the second set, I added extra lighting, care of the Chauvet Gigbar 2 which filled the floor nicely with a mix of effects.

Here’s my second one hour set playlist, a bit more rockier with a mix of nineties sing along anthems for those with a bit of Dutch courage in them!

  • The Killers – All these things I’ve done
  • The Commitments- Mustang Sally
  • Arctic Monkeys – Mardy Bum
  • The Waterboys – Fisherman’s Blues
  • Saw Doctors – I used to love her
  • Oasis – Don’t look back in anger
  • Oasis – She’s electric
  • Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire
  • Bon Jovi – Livin on a prayer (unplugged version)
  • Ed Sheeran – Thinking out loud
  • The Beatles – Saw her standing there
  • The Beatles – Twist and Shout 
  • The Beatles – Hey Jude
