I was good friends with a cover band doing 60s/70s called the Classix. They made me realize that doing those songs really WELL takes a lot of skill - some of them are really well crafted.

So "Classix" is taken, as are "Dinosaurs" (composed of San Francisco veterans) and "Relix" - not a BAND maybe, but a Grateful Dead retrospective.

My suggestions:
Maybe "Historical Research" or "Rock Historians" - not sure how SEXY those names are, LOL.

"Good Old Daisies"?
"Days of Yore" ?
"Time Warp" - that's how I tease my brother-in-law when he reminisces too much...."You're caught in a time warp, man..." LOL

To be funny, I was once in a band we called See Weed (a play on words and herbs) The fact that I lived on an island out in the ocean and the fact that there was actual sea weed all around the place on the beach and bay fronts made for that joke. One of my band mates in that band still plays out in venues on that island and is a friend of mine on Facebook. A real good player, solid as can be be as a rhythm player and a very good lead player too.

So my second offering is See Weed.... cheers rimshot

We all have been having fun with this, and some offered serious suggestions too, and some really good ones. But I'm still waiting to hear from Picker if they've decided on one or are still taking ideas. smile

What sorta music are ya going for here, PMan ?
That might give us a better handle to hang.

At this point, while there's some entertainment value to the sometimes, uh, entertaining nature of the suggested names for these ,uh, entertainers I must point out that PMan, in his all too often style, rather like a comet that only visits our system at extended periods, hasn't seemed to chk in or respond to aa direct question since he started this survey.

I suggest all further ideas be held in abeyance til we get the actual point.
Otherwise yer giving away what might be the best ideas you have for yer own future projects.

The odds of me playing in a covers band- well, ANY band, TBH- are remote. If someone deems one of my band names worth using, then I’ll have contributed something to the world at large.

(Or created a monster. Whatevs- I’m cool either way.)

Besides, I keep all my “originals” band names to myself. wink

I kinda like the Hep Replacements.

We have settled on The Ruzted Van Band(don't ask me why, I have no idea), and our facebook page has a picture of a rusted out VW microbus, minus the shovels and rakes and implements of destruction...

Has anyone suggested THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW ?

How abt this semi-reverse mash : THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS THEN TOO ?
OK, a bit long for the marquee...maybe a stage banner...


I now see the contest is over w/ all prizes going to, uh, mayby the drummer...
Y'a can still try the stage banner idea !
