Thank you for choosing Bob Gail Music! Please read these important instructions for how to use this form.

Please note that this song list applies to all of our variety dance bands. Therefore occasionally there may be a handful of songs that one band does that another does not. For your convenience, you may click on the link icon next to each selection to hear a sample of the original recording. (Please let us know if any of the sample links are broken—sometimes posts get removed from YouTube.) If there are songs that you would like that aren’t on the list, please feel free to email additional requests to (please reference your event date and venue). The band may already know the additional requests, and if not—and the requests are important enough to you—we can generally learn 2-3 songs per event. Although a band is able to play an average of 30-40 songs in a 4-hour timeframe, we recommend that you click “Like” on as many songs as you wish. There should be up to approximately 10 selections marked “Love.” And finally there should only be an approximate maximum of 10-15 selections marked “Despise.” Then onsite the band will try to hit on as many of your requests as possible while simultaneously reading the room and using their judgement to choose the best songs from moment to moment to make your unique crowd respond best as the evening unfolds. Please do not hesitate to email with any questions. Thanks again and looking forward to a fantastic event!!
