This is perhaps not being as helpful as Phil hoped...

Phil, how about "The [band leader] Jazz Band?" Seems like it would get the job done without a lot of muss and fuss.

Except the bandleader's name is Maciek Pysz!

I am warming to Tim R's point that an unusual spelling may not be so bad provided we produce lots of cards/flyers etc. I am booked on an Adobe In-design course next month with that in mind.

Also Davo's point about looking for available domain names in relevant.

I like some of the really wacky names.

Some one also made a really good point that the name actually doesn't matter too much.

We have a band meeting tonight before the guys have a gig (with Lenny B from the forum as my dep while I have a night off) and we're going to talk about names, new repertoire etc as the band leader is keen to get more gigs for this band - not just our regular late night Soho jazz club gig that pays peanuts.

I like the movie title idea but that's not so good for net searches.
I am spending a while looking at lyrics and poetry for the perfect little line or phrase too.

Some of my favourites above that made me laugh out loud are very unsuitable.

So far I dug:

The lyric idea - I thought of Another Spring - anything to do with warmth, heat, sun or summer is attractive in England right now as it is freezing.

It may not work over the pond but as a US political themed, Rage Against the Machine type of band.

I brought some names along and a range of arguments for and against a name change.

The Set-Up and Grooveyard went down the best.

But essentially they decided they'd prefer to keep the name 'The Lyveden Project' or shorten it to the LV project - thoughts?

Sound pretentious and snooty. And impossible for the average audience member to remember or spell properly.

Don't like it for Taters reasons.
Name usually is the toughest thing to agree on and like. I know, both groups I am in.. WildTime (we are neither 'wild' or on 'time') and Take3 (there are 4 of us in the group) It sounds to me that it takes 3 tries to get anything started.
I do like "The Set Up", its easy to say, remember and repeat!

Thanks

I am deliberately avoiding giving too much of my own views on it on the forum at the moment. Partly because threads from this forum have a habit of ending up in google searches about the groups in question.
