GUEST,Sharon G How did you name your band? (59* d) RE: How did you name your band? 13 Mar 03

My current band - Round the House- took on the name of our guitar player's former band. It is not super catchy as a name, but a nice connection to an Irish dance figure, and works for a group that plays Irish music and for dancers.

However Round the House doesn't get near the reaction of the name of the first band I joined: The Hot Desert Love Toads, which was corrupted from some other name long before I became rotated into the band as one of a long series of fiddlers.

And it isn't nearly as much fun conceptually as the name of the 2nd band I was in: Corned Beef and Couscous- which combined Irish and middle eastern music, sometimes at the same time. (It all started with the belly dancer said- "I could dance this to an Irish reel...."). A fun band that dissolved when the drummer moved away and the joke got old.
