I'm with Manitas and Anahata. Any band that goes out and plays for dancing should know two or three 48 batr tunes tunes. You never need that many in an evening, after all.There are loads of good'uns. A particularly favourite of mine at the moment is "A Trip to the Lakes", and Anahata provides an excellent list as well. And really, what's wrong with the Dingle Regatta? It's an old warhorse for a good reason|: it's a great tune!
    By all means play shaky eggs, but only if you think they help the sound. Banging the cymbal is quite a good way to let musicians know when you've got to a certain point in atune, actually.
