  8. I´d love to hear the music before suggesting anything. Guess it´s not a jazz thang, so You´d need a funky name. Don ate the violin?

    ( I know You´d just love to be called "Bloodsucking Silver Monkeys from Outer Space", bit will it speak for Your music? )

    Well, I'd been saving this one for myself, but it's so good it can't wait anymore. Don, I think you and the funny fiddle player should seriously consider LoveBone.

    It's got it all: compact, memorable, it's got that reference to the BOW in there, and it pays respect to string players' status as the Aristocracy of Eros. If you haven't heard, Barry White is (sadly) out of the picture now.

    No?

    Using your town's or state's name in any business can be pretty effective.

    I was just about to say Mike Goodbar was in the lead with "Firewood", when your offering surged to neck and neck position. If there's anything wrong, it's because it's insufficiently disrespectful.
    The door's still open, folks.
     
  15. Sorry, but that name is already being used by my church choir.
