Requests

The Bodleys Font

The Bodleys are committed to providing quality music and entertainment.  From our humble yet earnest beginnings, we have been adding new songs to our repertoire.  We have sought to select and to polish an eclectic blend of slow-tempo and up-tempo songs, tunes from a variety of styles, and songs that highlight the distinct talents of our musicians/vocalists.

To that end, we ask that you post your requests for songs for The Bodleys to consider here in the “Leave a Reply” box below.  We do not guarantee that we will definitely add your request to our repertoire, but we will give it honest consideration.  To paraphrase the cliche, “The only bad request is the one that is not uttered.”  As an example, percussionist/vocalist John Stradley is considering proposing the theme from Sons of Anarchy as a “prospect”!

Thank you in advance for your suggestion(s). – SBB

  2. Thanks for the request, Nadia! You are the first to post on this feature of the web site, and SBB is grateful for your recommendation. Ironically, about a month ago, I brought this wonderful song to the attention of Asher St. Pierre, our fine fiddle player. I even had the youngin’ over to my house for a dinner of Thai curry chicken and rice and a viewing of Oh! Brother, Where Art Thou? In the spirit of double-teaming, you and I can work on convincing my band mates to embrace this classic roots song. – SBB

    • Thanks for the request, Phil! Truth be told, rhythm guitarist Wasyl Bodnar brought Bad Company’s “Bad Company” to the ensemble for consideration some time ago. We will endeavor to work on it for performance at a private party gig in September and also as an addition to this fall’s set lists. – SBB

    • Phil, honestly, we gave it a good try, but “Bad Company” is a little out of our vocal range, even when employing a strategically-placed set of vice grips. We will give “Can’t Get Enough” a try – Mat Summers, our lead guitarist, knows the song, and will likely serve up the lead vocal when we add it to future set lists. Thanks again for the suggestion, and we hope to deliver the next time you see us perform. – SBB
