In my shows and dance gigs, I play "jazz standards" using backing tracks that people like and relate to (hiphop, salsa, disco cha cha, jazzy funk, etc.). Also, I have an assortment of the latest dance music mp3s (electronic, house, gangnam style, techno) stored in the keyboard, which I can present similar to the way a DJ works.
The equipment I'm currently using is a state-of-the-art KORG pa900 keyboard with great sounds and an on board voice processor which adds automatically-generated harmonies to the voice. When working large rooms or out-side I use my portable 300-watt Peavey PA system which has a small powered mixer and two 10 inch speakers with speaker stands.
