But seriously…

We do play more than that.

Between all of the band members, we would probably play around 200-300 tunes (roughly). Not all of us can play that many, but as a minimum most members can play around 40 tunes within a few years of playing.

Since we’re always augmenting our repertoire we can’t list all the tunes here, and we don’t like to brag…but trust us, we’re really awesome 🙂
