Default Model A Touring Tunes

Now that our touring season is complete in the Midwest, thoughts and work starts for next years touring. I plan on getting a good Bluetooth speaker and some Model A Era music for enjoyment while driving and for effect at events. Does anyone have collections for sale, list of bouncy songs, or shortcuts to getting a collection to put on an iPhone or other means to get to a wireless Bluetooth speaker. I am looking at the JBL Charge 3.
I am not skilled in this procedure.
Thanks for any advice and help.

Not Model A era, but, "May the bird of Paradise fly up your nose!" Is always a humdinger with me and my travel mates. 2 thumbs up. Jeff

I have a list of about 45 plus car tunes from the 50's and 60's and 70's if anyone is interested. Tunes that mention any type of car in it.

Tried to put list on here but it is all mesed up.

Youtube is your friend here. Just type in "Model A Songs".

Here is one.

You’ll find some more suggestions on the “Model A Blues/Rockabilly Songs” thread that I started back in January.

This forum is great. Here I search youtube for "Model A" songs and what do I get, but a song I wrote a long time ago and had this kid, I made him, sing it after he helped me swap engine in my A. Did not expect this one to ever surface again.

Nothing says late 20's early 30's tunes to me like the background soundtracks to Hal Roach comedy shorts like Laurel & Hardy and Our Gang. There is a great collection of this music that was recreated in it's original style and recording format by the Beau Hunks a Dutch revivalist music ensemble who have performed and recorded the vintage works of composers Leroy Shield and Marvin Hatley. Look for "The Beau Hunks Play Laurel & Hardy Music and The Beau Hunks Play Little Rascals Music". You will be mesmerized by the clock being turned back to 1930.

Me too, to the point where I messaged him a week or so ago as I wondered if something had happened to him. He replied after about a week, saying that life was pretty full and he didnít log onto FB very often. I hope heís OK. I miss his BS!!

If you are looking for 20's and 30's era music and are on Spotify there are some great playlists available. 20's and 30's Music Via The Big Broadcast is a good one. I like it because it is all original recordings; no covers or modern interpretations. I listen to it a lot in the garage while working on either of my A's. Currently at 204 songs covering over 10 hours.

If you're looking for modern music that emulates A era sounds I'd suggest checking out The Fat Babies or Pokey LaForge's first few albums.

My bluetooth device of choice for the A is a Bose Soundlink. I keep it charged off a portable solar powered charger.
