At our last practice the notion of a band name was brought up. I have thought about it but not that much. Man Cave was laughingly brought up. Any ideas? We are doing classic rock.

Man Cavemen

or

TR and the Cavemen

Etc.,

TR and the Troglodytes
Troll
Grumpy Geezer and the Dirty Old Men
Missionary Men
Neanderthal
Morlocks
The Ascetics

Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.

I like the "4 Eyed Monsters"...

Something simple?.... "TRB"

Acronym for Terry Rand Band

Or... replace the B with anything

TRX (xperience)
TRS (sensation)
TRD (duet)
TRG (group)

... whatever word and sounding acronym you like best

Thank you everyone! So many creative people here. TR2 is what we were going to call ourselves before. Now we have our drummer Tommy. T3? We thought about it. I love the Cave Man ideas. Four eyed monster is really cool. Tommy doesn't wear glasses though and I only wear them at work. (ThunderFingers is almost legally blind though) We did kind of come up with an idea though. OK, we are doing lots of KISS music. We like horror, we like comedy. We want fun, we want tounge in cheek. KISS origionally was a band called Wicked Lester. We thought about Bandersnatch ... ala Alice in Wonderland (it has band and snatch in it ... how cool is that) ThunderFingers mentioned it's scratches cause wounds that fester and putrify. I had my cat incident last spring and tommy has had some infection issues on his re-attached right hand. Hmmmmm ..... ThunderFingers then blurts out WICKED FESTER! Sounds like KISS' origional name, has the repulsive word fester in it and we have Uncle Fester as a mascott. Humor, horror, meaning, fun! We just have to run it by Tommy.

I liked the many suggestions, and as an aside or additional distraction, enjoyed Webb Wilder's music and his groove. 8)

I think you have found something with Wicked Fester, or if you want to have a subtle connection with Lynyrd Skynyrd, then Lester Fester?

Why not do what so many bands have done over the years - call yourselves after a classic song? Cat Scratch Fever springs to mind....

:D :D :D
