Any interesting band names?


Recommended Posts

All of the ones I've been in have been pretty boring:

 

The eMGees

The Whinin' Boys

The Carroll County Boys

Last Minute String Band

Nelson, Michaud, Platter and Rutter

The B-111 Jug Stompers

 

The name that I really liked (but it was always voted down by my band mates) was Give Reggie a Wedgie.

 

Some people just don't know brilliance when it appears.

My cohort Darrin the drummer liked the name "Double D" as the lead player's name was Dan. The female vocalist wasn't too happy about the double entendre. They changed the name of the band to "B Cup". She quit.

LOL..... [laugh]

 

 

 

Numerous 'post high school' bands that names seemed to change on a weekly basis..... [tongue]

 

Couple of bands I was in during the 1990's to 2000's - were.....

 

The Money Shot

 

Hi-Fi Killers ... I always dug that name

We ( Hi-Fi Killers ) were huge Zappa fans.......

 

 

 

Did you hear that little story about Frank Zappa & Deep Purple..

I vaguely remember it..

I dont remember which Purple band member mentioned it but they were with Frank Zappa in the Rolling Stones Mobile Recording Studio and the thing caught fire while they were in there..

Everyone about to exit Frank Zappa says to them hold on don't worry its nothing relax...gets up front and jumps out the window.

I dont remember it word for word but ill never forget the image of it.

Nothing terribly interesting.

 

The Hairy Things (back in the mid-1960s and chosen after hearing a comment made by a none-too adoring fan)

Radio City (kept this one for alot of years)

Southern Can (what else but an acoustic blues band)

Little Floater (kind of a string band thing with a floating lineup - basically any number of folks who were around played).
