Songs We Use

Hello All….I have always been asked how do you choose all the music that you play at seminars or at conventions and I must say that I cannot take any credit for song selection at all. My buddy, Marc Accetta has one of the most amazing ears for lyrics that I have ever encountered. I have been in the music industry for a number of years, played professionally, recorded did the whole tour thing and met some amazing musicians from all genres of music, but never had I encountered someone that knew the lyrics of a song and their meaning and their message as Marc did. I am a drummer so for me beats get me moving and beats is all it takes…

Here are just some of the songs that we’ve used at seminars, Please feel free to comment back with any other songs that we’ve left off as we have obviously because there are just unlimited amounts of music out there, that have amazing messages.
