I am getting ready to start gigging, and I wanted to get some advise. I was wondering if I should learn a few tunes that come up often as requests. I would be playing all Italian music, and when I play at small gatherings, I usually get a few requests. However, they don't always fit in with the programing that I am going for. For example, if I'm playing a group of music from the Bologna region and someone requests That's Amore. I know in my head that I am overthinking this, and I should just please the audience, but I'm wondering how often this happens on paid gigs. Do you get a lot of requests? And which ones pop up most at Italian restaurants?
