About song lists…

The most important song list is often the list of songs you DO NOT want played at your event. If we have presented material either here or on the demonstration CD that you feel is inappropriate, please let us know so these songs may be omitted during your event.
We can access most any piece of music you may require. If there is a song you want us to perform that is not listed here please note we do have an extended library of nearly every song ever written. Our extended list includes many wonderful country tunes as well as ethnic music .

We purposely omitted songs typically listed on most song lists…

Song lists are often too long so we included the most requested songs that have worked best for Dressed in Black in our most recent and successful engagements.

Playing the right music at the right time is the key to a successful event. We welcome your input and will put your suggestions into the play list wherever possible to insure a most delightful evening for both you and your guests.

We understand planning an event that requires live music can offer many different possibilities. Please allow us the opportunity to assist in any way we can to make this process not only simple but enjoyable as well.
