We Had Joy, We Had Fun, We Had Concerts In the Sun

I have been fortunate once again to receive an invitation from my old friend Matt Evans to play with him at yet another gig. This time we will be taking another trip down Florida way to play for a Panama City beach retreat. This is the second time I have had the pleasure of joining Matt and Clay at the beach for some singing, sun and fun.

Since we are not a full-time band but simply friends who like to get together to play music we do not have a name. So I have taken upon myself on past occasions to propose a temporary band name for us. Having a band name for a gig makes it easier when it comes to introductions and a snazzy band name just looks slicker on a poster or flyer than “Matt and his musical cohorts” (actually that one’s not bad). So I have come up with a fresh batch of band names that we could potentially use for the duration of this beach retreat. You will notice that they have a decidedly oceanic flair.

Now it is true that we have never actually used any of the names I have conjured up in the past, but I simply chalk this up to the fact that we have not happened upon the right one yet. So this time around I want your input. Please cast your vote below for the band name you think we should use at our beach retreat gig in July. And if you have any band names of your own that you would like to suggest then please leave comment after you have voted.

    Those are all great, but I voted for Panamaniacs. However, if you’re taking suggestions, how about this:
    Cap’n Geech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters

    I actually really like the "Matt and his Musical Cohorts" a lot. It’s got a ring to it. Otherwise, "Highly Overrated" and "Creepy Old Guys"  are still viable options.

    I think we’re on the right track with brainstorming each time we’re together.  How funny would it be if we never used the same name twice (even around the same groups of kids)?  It’s fun confusing the already confused middle schoolers…

    I know my posts are typically very random, Keith-like, papa-ish, poo-doo, but I was thinking about this earlier, so here goes…
    Lyle Lovett is typically promoted as simply Lyle Lovett but their full title is Lyle Lovett and His Large Band. Now before you bristle I’ll say this, 1) listen to him, he’s really good and 2) I’m going for the idea of the name here.
    I submit to you the following:
    — Matthew Evans and His Band of Nobodies
    — Matthew Evans and No One Special
    — Matthew Evans and No One In Particular
    — Matthew Evans and His Musical Accompaniment
    On a separate note, Joshua, have you played the game Guitar Hero? I can picture you kickin’ out a Def Leppard solo on a video game.
    Rock it…Yeah…
