All blues all the time! I don't compete but at home when I smoke I play various blues artists, SRV, Joe Bonamassa, Susan Tedeschi, John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, BB King, Mississippi John Hurt, Sister Rosetta Tharp, the list could go on for a long time but I think you get the idea. All Blues all the time.

My collection of pre and post WWII era country blues, Twang, Honky and Tonk, Countrypolitan, Sun Records Rockabilly, R&B, Soul, Funk, Blues, for prep, and on Sunday I sometimes throw in some Gospel and Sacred Steel tunes to piss off the hungovers!

Wow... That list would be unbelievably long. I'm coming up on 4000 songs in my ipod and the artists range from Mozart to Pat Matheny to Stone Temple Pilots. I'm proud to say that there isn't a single rap song anywhere in there. For comps I just put in the ole ear buds and hit shuffle.

We play mindless 80's music from Elvis Costello to a Flock of Seagulls. Hey, we are just looking to have some fun.

We sort of have a tradition to play The Lumberjack song by Jackyl at 11:30am Saturday morning (really loud) but other than that we usually play a mix of blues, hard rock, classic rock and country...

Friday Night -Grateful Dead

Saturday Morning - Rolling Stones, starting with Start Me Up (as soon as the chicken goes on the smoker) and finishing with Tumbling Dice (when the brisket gets turned in).

After that were usually drowned out by whatever local band happens to be blasting their version of SRV and Santana covers from the stage.

We try to keep it to anything classic rock, blues, some Marley, etc. As long as there isn't any obscenities so we don't scare any families away from the site...until after awards.

I have a party playlist that goes on for about 20 hours and I like to shuffle it before each comp. Usually stick to the more up-beat stuff that you can sing along to. My mix is all over the place: Kinks, Weezer, Hank Sr., Beastie Boys, Cracker, Lily Allen, Wilco, Steve Miller Band, Radiohead, Spoon, Van "The Man" Morrison, AC/DC, B-52s, Stones, Ramones... Now I just need to add some Pantera in there to really mess with things!

We swing between Southern Rock and 90's Alternative. Lynard Skynard to Nirvana; Butthole Surfers to Charlie Daniels; Spiderbait to Rusted Root; Allman Brothers to Nine Inch Nails...

Every once in a while we'll thow in some 40's era Jazz and Blues with Ella or Billie and mix it with some classic bluegrass like Glenn Yarbrough.

It's an eclectic mix - everything from the Rev. Horton Heat, Bruce Springsteen, and some Tom Jones - to Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. My iPod has multiple personalities. Thank gawd they all like BBQ.

Outstanding call on the Horton Heat!

If I'm up lighting the early fires, I throw in some My Morning Jacket followed by some live Black Crowes. At approx 10 AM, we pick up a little steam with Shoot To Thrill by AC/DC and then it's off to the races with whatever's on the playlist! Supersuckers, Drive By Truckers, Slobberbone, Lucero, Social Distortion, the obligatory Skynyrd, Johnny Cash and of course... Big Iron by either Marty Robbins or Mike Ness! :thumb:

A lot of what I listen to has been listed. A nice 80's mix while doing prep work and relaxing. Starting about 90 minutes before the first turn in, I got straight Metallica and that stays on until after the last turn in, then I change it back to my more mellow everything mix. One of these days I'll get a play list where I start it at a certain time and it will guide me through a competition. Just haven't gotten that sophisticated yet. :loco:

Just started gathering music. I'm thinking of some old school opera to play really loud - just to throw the competition off their game :)

I kid, I kid.

We didn't have a chance to listen to any of the music we had last weekend. The "partY' of competitiors next to us had their music so loud, we could barely hear ourselves talking/yelling...then the live music started and forget about it...

Sinatra and Dean Martin for dinner on Friday night, then some Ray Wylie Hubbard, Hank, Lefty, and Willie to start Saturday. By noon Drive-by-Truckers, and some harder stuff for clean-up. Motorhead, Rancid, and the Cult mostly.

First track: Dr. Love (Kiss)
Then it's on to a whole bunch of Rush (old school with only one exception)
Finish with Motorhead

During the comp it's progressive rock/metal (Dream Theater, Symphony X, Iron Maiden, Kamelot, Spock's Beard, Pain of Salvation, Vanden Plas) but turn in time has us playing show tunes, starting with the Young Frankenstein version of "Puttin' on the Ritz", followed by "I feel Pretty" and whatever else comes up.
