The American Dream band was formed in late, 2021 and like many groups spent the next 3-4 months trying a variety of combinations before establishing the core. We’ve taken our time developing a set list and have learned about 100-songs in the process.  We carefully searched for and considered as many top 100-songs from Billboard’s year-by-year collection starting in the year 1964 and continuing to 1984.  We looked for songs which fit our instrumentation, vocal abilities and taste. Songs we could enjoy playing over and over which an audience could also enjoy listening and or dancing.
