These are songs that we've played or are working on playing well.  The LIST column describes how much we play the song.  A is something we can play well at the drop of a hat. A minus means we're working on it getting on the A list.  B means we've played it at least once, but it'd need a good amount of rehearsal to get great.  S means it's a seasonal piece, so we will play it when appropriate.  C means we tried it out and it would take a long time to get great.
