    I recently auditioned for some sort of band, containing singers, guitar, bassguitar, keyboard and drums. They wanted me in, and in time they want to add more wind players (saxophone and trombone for example)
    They want to change their repertoire to make sure I can play with them most of the time.
    so... I'm looking for specific songs with at least one wind instrument in them (preferably trumpet, but any will do), that also contains all of the above mentioned parts (singers, guitar, bassguitar, keyboard and drums).
    or bands that allways use wind instruments.

    so... shoot away! (and if it exists, a youtube link or something would help a lot.)

    right now they play this:
    I've found youtube links to most of them. So music in that kind of style would be best. (don't mind the letters in the ()'s)

    (I) La Grange
    (S) Kryptonite
    (K) I Don't Care
    (S) Boulevard of Broken Dreams
    (K) Open Your Eyes
    (S) Maybe Tomorrow
    (K) Ironic
    (S) Baker Street
    (R) Creep
    (I) Sunshine
    (K) Valerie
    (I) Pick Up The Pieces
    (K) Weak
    (S) Breakfast At Tiffany's
    (K) Nobody's Wife
    (S) Crazy Little Thing
    (K) Proud Mary
    (S) Narcotic
    (K) Ghostbusters
    (S) Wonderwall
    (K) Wannabe


    EDIT: I've removed the youtube links to save some space here.... they take up an entire page like that

    thanks.
    is the trumpet present in all the songs?
    if not, what songs do you recommend?

    Yeah, I think Cake has trumpet in pretty much every song.

    Check out "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" and "The Distance" to get started.

    no offense intended, but that explains why you did know many of the songs on our list. I'm 54 and grew up on KC and the Sunshine band, BS&T, Chicago, Vechicle by The Ides of March of a 1 hit wonder band and this song is loaded with great horn licks. People aren't going to dance to Ghostbusters. Good luck

    none taken.

    The band is a college band. So the minimum age is around 19, and the maximum age is around 25. (which is the age I should be getting my M.D. title)

    I'm just looking for, lets say, 10 names of good songs that include a trumpet part, so we have something to work on.
