Example set list for a vintage event
Boogie woogie bugle boy
In the mood
Let there be love
Perhaps perhaps perhaps
All about that bass
Hit the road Jack
Don't sit under the apple tree
Zing went the strings of my heart
It had to be you
Ain't that a kick in the head
Walking after midnight
Mack the knife
Jump the broomstick
Jump Jive and wail
I wanna be like you
Down with love
It's almost like being in love
The lady is a tramp
