Download these Christmas dance songs for your live band to learn and play at gigs.
Last week I posted up our first Christmas Song set list called Christmas Dance Songs 1 for you to use with your live band. You can either use these set lists as a whole and learn every song on them with your live band or you can pick and choose songs to learn. It’s also a great idea to have all of the songs listed on the set lists loaded on your portable music player so you can have them with you at your gigs. The reason you want to have them with you is so you can fill requests during your band breaks.
It’s not always possible to learn every song on the setlist simply because you band’s lineup may not be able to cover some of the songs on the list. That’s another great reason to have these songs with you at gigs loaded on your portable player. You’ll be able to play some songs during band breaks that your band normally wouldn’t be able to play. That’s a really easy way to keep the audience happy and dancing all night long.
You can download these songs from Amazon.com MP3 download service which gives you several advantages over iTunes. The MP3’s are all encoded at 256kbps which is an excellent quality for MP3’s. You also won’t need any special software to download the songs or load them on your portable music player. All the songs are fully compatible with any MP3 player including iPods and iPhones. So get downloading these Christmas dance songs and start partying!
