Okay so pretty much every friday after the highschool football game we all go out and have a few to drink and sit around with some music and I usually bring the guitar. Everybody usually likes me to play some Jack Johnson, Dispatch, Dave Matthews... but I don't wanna play the same stuff every week. Does anyone know of any similar artists I might wanna look at in or around those genre's.

It may sound corny, but the Goo Goo Dolls have some really cool acoustic tunes. I usually get a pretty good reception when I play their stuff in a campfire setting. Also, Iron & Wine has some really good acoustic stuff, although it may not be the style you are looking for. Nonetheless, download some of the free Iron & Wine stuff at subpop.com and see if you like it. Another band I have gotten into lately is Minus Ted. A very unkown band from NYC that does acoustic rock. They have 10 free songs you can download from minusted.com. Check 'em out.

Pretty much everyone does at that age though. Americans are somewhat over puritanical. Smiley Smiley

I know you're young, but you might want to try some Beatles or Bob Dylan music. My son is about your age, and he likes the Beatles. Smiley

Oh yea I've listened to the Beatles for as long as I can remember (grew up with my parents listening to it).

Thanks for all of your suggestions, I'll check them out.

There's one crowd-pleasing song that works better then an other. You can be a retarded monkey with a migrane and a ukulele but if you can play this you'll get the crowd joining in.

You gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to hold 'em know when to walk away....

I wouldn't say that americans are puritanical. For instance, if you get caught drinking and driving here you can end up getting a felony, if you get caught TWICE. There are a few countries where you get caught ONCE and it's execution by firing squad. No kidding. France revokes your license for three years and gives you a thousand dollar fine. Russia revokes your license for LIFE. This is after ONE DUI. America's pretty lenient on that.
I don't know why they raised the drinking age to 21, I don't really feel like there should be one at all. But I do think that if you're dumb enough to drink and drive you deserve to be punished. Smiley

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying
