SONGS 2024

The songs are a colorful mix of classics and current hits from rock, pop and funk/soul. THE GRAND JAM offers music for fans of all generations. The anthem of THE GRAND JAM is the song “Don’t stop believin'” by Journey, which describes in a simple way that you should always believe in your dreams.

The songs from THE GRAND JAM 2023 in Frankfurt are all online and around half of the songs will be played again in 2024.

These are the songs from 2023 which will be played again in 2024:

  • Don‘t stop believin‘ – Journey
  • Zombie – The Cranberries
  • Angels – Robbie Williams
  • Uptown Funk – Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars
  • Viva la Vida – Coldplay
  • Shut up and dance – Walk the moon
  • Smells like teen spirit – Nirvana
  • Can‘t stop – Red Hot Chili Peppers

Two or three songs more will be chosen from 2023 – that will be decided soon.

GENERAL INFORMATION

ON-SITE LOGISTICS
We recommend bringing a trolley to move your equipment around the premises. But we will provide some trolleys / carts at the venue as well.

REHEARSALS
Practicing more than 15 songs is a big challenge. But don’t forget that we also have two days of rehearsals together before our big show on Saturday. These will help you enormously to play with each other, as well as for the purpose of getting used to the venue and adjusting to the support of the LED boards and the headphone system.

GENERAL ADVICE
On the rehearsal days you might spend many hours in the sun and have to stand a lot! Eat and drink properly and dress comfortably (comfortable shoes are highly recommended)! It is also important to wear sunscreen and wear a protective hat (headphones should fit over it).

HEADPHONES
Each jammer receives a “Silutions headphone” which allows you to hear the play-alongs (with click and cues). On the headphones you hear exactly the song for each instrument, just as you used it for practicing. All communication will go through the headphones.

IMPORTANT: Please don’t bring any radio transmiiters (e.g. for guitars) as they might interfere with our headphone-radio-system.

ELECTRICITY
Power is provided for each of the electric instruments – i.e. for guitar, bass and keyboard.  European socket.

MICROPHONES
All vocals sing into microphones which are set up in the stadium. The other instruments are either recorded directly with microphones or via overhead microphones in the sections. All microphones will be provided on site.

EQUIPMENT OVER NIGHT
The equipment stays in the stadium overnight and is of course guarded. Portable instruments, i.e. guitars, basses, wind instruments, string instruments should ideally be taken with you. All instruments and amplifiers that remain in the stadium must be packed in a watertight cover. Moisture is drawn into the stadium overnight – even if it’s not raining. This is not to be underestimated.
