Set List / Repertoire

A foggy day
A song for you
Ain’t that a kick in the head
All I do is dream of you
All of me
Bad Bad Leroy Brown
Beyond the sea
Call me irresponsible
Can’t buy me love
Come fly with me
Crazy little thing called love
Crazy love
Cry me a river
Do nothing til you hear from me
Don’t get around much anymore
Eye of the tiger
Felling good
Fly me to the moon
For once in my life
Have you met Miss Jones
Haven't met you yet
Heart ache tonight
Hold on
How sweet it is
I get a kick out of you
I'm your man
I've got the world on a string
I've got you under my skin
It had better be tonight
It had to be you
It was only a paper moon
Just you, just me
Let’s face the music and dance
Mack the Knife
Me and Mrs Jones
Me and Mrs You
More i see you
Mr Bojangles
My way
New York New York
Nice and easy
Night and Day
One for my baby
Orange coloured Sky
Peroxide Swing
Put your head on my shoulder
Save the last dance for me
Straighten up and fly right
Stuck in the middle with you
That’s life
The best is yet to come
The lady is a tramp
The Snake
The summer wind
The way you look tonight
They can’t take that away from me
Try a little tenderness
You and I
You make me feel so young
You’re nobody til somebody loves you
And many many more……
