Acoustic Cover Tune Ideas

Do you have a wedding coming up, or a big event and have to select music? Are you interested in creating a playlist perfect for low key dinner or cocktail hour music, but don't want to fall too heavily on mostly music of the old? One option is to find artists that take modern songs and cover them in a loungy/acoustic twist. There are some good modern alternatives that I really enjoy playing at parties.

There are many popular options out there. Jack Johnson and Michael Bublé are two more famous singers, known for some great acoustic and jazzy tracks. They are certainly worth taking a listen to. However there are a few others out there that are lesser known.

Boyce Avenue is great! They are a fairly new American acoustic rock band incidentally, named after a combination of two streets the brothers lived on as children. Assembled in Sarasota, FL by three brothers Alejandro, Daniel and Fabian Manzano, this acoustic group does a great job giving modern pop music and a new acoustic life.

BRUCE LASH - is another good unknown artist option to look at. Another good cover tune track that I find interesting was featured in the 2008 box office hit Marley & Me. "Lithium" is performed by Bruce Lash and written by Kurt Cobain founder of Nirvana.

Good luck!
