My band needs a Motto/ tag line

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by troy mcclure, Dec 21, 2014.

  1. I joined a new band, why not a new year is coming and the band I gigged with in 2014 was fine but I had no ownership. So I am joining an established band with some previous members and their name doesn't match the genre, sounds heavy metal when we play everything.
    I need a motto to go on our business cards/ banner to soften up the name. The BL thinks if he changes the name he will lose some gigs ( I disagree but I am not adamant).

    Any ideas? I have used " The more you drink, the better we sound" in the past but kind of want to address the name, so I was thinking "Wicked Good Music for a .... that is where I am stuck?
    any suggestions..remember we are a cover band that will play bars/clubs/parties.

    One of my old bands was known as The Dapper Dans (not the geezer close harmony band :D ) and we went with "Clap your hands for the Dapper Dans" though it was often bastardized as "Crap your pants ..." The latter suited us better, to be honest :D

    "Sinister" conjures up images of early 80's spandex bands. Covers? Originals? Genre?

    I'll let you use the one I made up for one of my old bands: "We suck less."
