Wow, that is a pretty eclectic set list !
We are playing a wedding, too in April. I play bass in the band.

I don't know if we're eclectic or catholic ;-)
We DO try to stay away from songs that every other uke band plays and we both like that sort of Texas Swing, Hank Williams thang. Just try to play songs we like, I suppose.
There's a couple of waltzes in there tho, so i reckon we're sorted.!
