    how bout "The 'Don't know my alphabet past C' players" ? :D

  5. How about Papa Woody and the Hip-Pocket Players?
  6. There is a "Beavis and Butthead" book that might give you some ideas. It has a chart with 3 columns. You pick one word from each column and end up with a name. My favorite is "Screaming Monkey Stick"

    No Ed, I'm not S*** kicking happy, I'm downright embarressed.

    I made the classic mistake. I responded without re-reading your post. I thought I could delete it before you read it . Oops, too late. Please accept my apology. 20 lashes with an E strihg are in order.

    By the way, that post was only up for a few minutes before I deleted it. How the heck did you catch my post in that little bitty time window?

    - "quesque c'est MFOS? Je dit "mofos", which is a more Oedipal thang."

    I know I messed up, but do you think that sort of language is called for?
    I promise, in the future, to spend more time practising my Oedipal scales and less time posting.:)

    Actually "Oasis" is the name of a chain of retail outlets for "fashionable" women's clothing in the UK - I'm suprised they've never sued and even more suprised that anyone thinks this is a "cool" name - as has been mentioned "Miles Davis Quintet" - now that's a cool name. :rolleyes:

    Actually some of the "younger" groups that appear at my local Jazz club do actually have "names" and Double Bass(es)! My favourite is "Perfect Houseplants" or possibly "Loose Tubes" but they aren't around any more.

    So why hasn't anyone suggest "The Patrick Roberts Quartet" - sounds cool as something to me ;)

    "The Pat Roberts Trio"?
  9. Indiejestion, Midnight Trane, Limp Trisket. This isn't the real answer but jazz is about humour.

    Despite having wandered into the wrong forum you have already come up with the perfect name for your group - "Cool as Poo"

    BTW Tony Levin has a list of free-for-the-taking band names on his website.
