    Default Help needed!

    I need song suggestions for July 4th.
    We're playing to an older crowd, in an Assisted Living Facility that day, and they requested "Patriotic" songs for one hour.
    Thanks for your help!

    Maybe not suited for the audience group, but I’d consider The Times They Are A-Changin’ to be a somewhat patriotic song. May be a stretch since it is more of a protesty song, but what is more patriotic in the US than protesting the status quo?

    God Bless America! The only song where an entire audience at a senior center or assisted living will stand up for. I love seeing the old vets backs get a little straighter and hands tightly by their side as they sing along to the song.
    You're a Grand Old Flag is also a tear jerker for many.

    I've been working on an arrangement of this myself. I didn't think of doing a search. Thanks for this.

    I sometimes think if this were our national anthem instead of the bombastic bombs bursting in air we'd all be better off. And I would enjoy the first pitch at ball games more.
