Peter Jumbo Monkey?

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by cgordonfreeman, Sep 9, 2008.

  1. Hi guys,
    I know this question is always coming up but what are your thoughts of Peter Jumbo Monkey as a band name? Myself and my band mates are considering changing our name from Roach Material to this. I know it;s a completely ridiculous name but then so is (IMO) The Red Hot Chili Peppers:) Just for the record, we play Rock/Blues/Funk/Whatever stuff.

    Cheers Folks.

    Yeah, it's cool, I guess. If you guys like it, that's all that matters.

    The only downside is, it's sort of a tounge-twister. So if you see someone on the street and you're like, "Hey, I'm in a band" and they say, "Whats your band's name?" and you say, "Peterjumbomonkey" they might say, "what!?" and you'll have to say it again...

    The rule for us when we were picking a band name is, if you have to say it more than once to someone, there's a good chance that person will not remember it...

    Sitting in the mix well
    I kinda like it, but I couldn't tell you why.
    Definitely beats "Roach Material" :D

    I kinda like the name "Jumbo Monkey Peter" which best describes King Kong's male anatomy.

    I'd prefer simply "Jumbo Monkey"
    easier to register in the brain.

    damn, beat me too it.

    "Peter Jumbo Monkey" is a bit confusing. The above, or Jumbo Monkey is better.

    Alternatively Jumbo Monkey Johnson. Just rolls off the tongue like sweet candy... NOT.

    It's also a given that any band's name is made more awesome by the addition of Turbo in it.

    You mean like "Turbo Gerbil"? Has a nice ring to it.

    Peter, Johnson, Gerbil.....anybody detect a theme here?

    How about "Peter, the Jumbo Monkey"
    Maybe "Monkey Jumbo"
    or best of all "Jumbo Peter"

    Edit: How about "Strike, the Monkey"?

    I like "Jumbo Monkey" or "Jumbo Peter" or even "Jumbo Peterson".

    If you went with "Jumbo Peter" your first album could be titled "The Jumbo Peter Files".
