    I'm looking for ideas and I know my TB bros can help out. We do mostly Meters covers along with James Brown, Maceo, Sly, and a bunch of other funk covers. I know the name isn't too important, but I might as well get a few ideas before we mull it over in practice on Thursday. Considering we do a lot of Meters it would be cool (to me) to pull in something from their albums, or a popular song of theirs.

    I only have one so far.


    Maybe something like ____ Strut (fill in the blank)

    Thanks doods.

    I definitely recommend NOT putting "Funk" or "Funky" in the name. It's been downhill ever since Funkadelic IMHO.

    I think if you're going to name it after a JB song it would have to be "Hot Pants".
