And The Band Played On

My mother-in-law passed away a few weeks ago. A wonderful person whom I will really miss.

Her memorial service is this coming Saturday. We have been asked to play at the reception that follows the service. When I say “we”, the band is a trio: myself and my two sons.

Somewhat challenging to build a setlist for such an event, particularly when my sound is very much on the contemporary side of things. No vocals so the covers will all be instrumental pieces. My part will be covering the melody lines with a bit of improvisation here and there.

This is what we are going with:

  • It Is Well
  • Be Thou My Vision
  • Amazing Grace
  • Before The Throne Of God Above
  • What Child Is This
  • Christ The Lord Is Risen Today
  • Holy, Holy, Holy
  • Crown Him
  • Great Is Thy Faithfulness
  • Come Thou Fount
  • Great Are You Lord

Yes. They are all hymns. However, we are playing contemporary arrangements and supplementing our little trio with percussion, strings, keys courtesy of MultiTracks.

The video below shows our setup for the date.
