 name that band
Author: Ralph Katz 
Date:   2010-05-20 23:19

I play in a band that has been doing weddings and Bar Mitzvahs for the last decade. Things have been so dry that we finally broke down and took a coffee house job.

So, we finally need a name.

The first thing come to mind is to use my name, all of our names, or permutations of the first two letters: Katz/Gitterman/Nelson, Kagine, Radana. These conjure up no images at all.

What if the name was cute? Punny? Obscure? Transparent? Evocative?

What about using something like "klez" in the name if this venue dictates a larger Balkan component?

What if the name is a word from a culture whose music we don't play?

What if the name is a word from a technology other than music, whose true significance only a few people may grasp? (It will be polite.)

Yes I am being circumspect. No I don't want to say the candidate names. Yet, anyway.

If you have a working band, how did you pick the name?

Please comment.
