abbaye 7th anniversary party 1/16/10

this was our 4th year (3rd in a row) playing the abbaye anniversary party and just like all the other years we did it karaoke style. this year we had a book of 200 songs that people could choose from, sign up for, and sing with us. it was five glorious hours of controlled mayhem (with one ten minute break between the two sets). everybody who got up and sang did a great job. we warmed everyone up with five of our songs and then the crowd took over. below is the entire set list starting with the five taggart songs right into the karaoke. all the karaoke songs have the original band following the song title.
