Our Set - The Racketeers Live Set

A guest at an event recently commented that EVERY song we played was on their iPod - full marks to your music selection (thanks Jamie)

We play each song as it was orginally conceived, right down to the last high-hat, guitar riff, and keyboard patch - to the best of our ability. If the song isn't working, we don't play it. As a part of this approach we absolutely DO NOT use backing tracks or ANY sequenced music at all - every note is played live.


The live set is just over 2 hrs straight through excluding breaks. Including breaks our total playing time can last well over 2.5 hrs from start to finish.

Our repotoire is broad, and some of the songs we include are from the following artists:

  • Kings of Leon
  • Primal Scream
  • The Killers
  • The Charlatans
  • The Stone Roses
  • The Fratellis
  • The Stereophonics
  • The Jam
  • The Doors
  • David Bowie
  • The Kinks
  • The Clash
  • Van Morrison
  • The Specials
  • The Coral
  • The Beatles
  • Rolling Stones
  • Chuck Berry
  • Johnny Cash
  • Marc Bolan
