Hi all

I'm posting this to several different callers' lists (ECD, 
trad-dance-callers and shared weight) in hopes of some speedy advice. 
I'm heading off shortly (Weds. evening, 6/8) for an event that is not a 
dance event, but at which I've been asked to lead a short community 
dance session on "honky tonk night."  The band for this is _not_ a 
traditional dance band.  They're more of a garage band with bar-band 
aspirations.  I wrote to them several weeks ago to check in about music, 
and when I didn't hear back, wrote again about a week ago.  Then again, 
and finally heard back right as I was getting ready to leave for the 
airport for a weekend gig, from which I've just returned.

Their contact person tells me that sheet music would be useful, which 
puts me in the position of trying to figure out a very small assortment 
of tunes to send them.  We're doing about 1/2 hour of dancing, so at the 
most it'll be 3 dances.  With 2 jigs and 2 reels I can make this work. 
The question is "which ones?"  And that's where you all come in.  I'm 
looking for recommendations for a small assortment of simple, enjoyable 
tunes for community dancing.  As a non-musican, I have no idea which 
tunes are easy to pick up quickly and which aren't, so I'm hoping some 
of you can help me out.
