So you decide to start a band.....
« on: July 18, 2013, 04:19:29 PM »
ok, guys. I'm starting a new band and i need name ideas. Old country, southern rock, some older red dirt, a few originals, even a few old country gospel tunes but very little of the stuff that passes as country music today. Any help would be appreciated.

We are gonna start out with 4 guys. A lead guitar, bass, drums, and me. I am going to be the lead singer but also play fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo, keys, harmonica, kazoo or whatever else they ask me to.

How about Junior Dugan and the Submarine Riders? Or how about Jim Owens' Float Trippers? How about the Electric Sunshine and Smile on Your Face Band?  Ah, maybe Fire in the Hole? Or, ah, Be Home By Mornin'? or the You Never Have Heard The Song Like This Before Band, or maybe Ida Mae?  What about Playin' for Cash?   Midnight Plowboys? Full Moon Madness?  Moonlight Madness?   Keep Your Eyes on the Road, Son?

I was at Camp Meeting this past week. They had Bro. Stan Cook singing. He said, "You can't get to Heaven without a steel guitar in the band!!" ;)

I will present the name "Off yer Rockers" to my bandmates and see what they say. Stands a good chance that they are going to tell me that I must be off mine.   ::)
How bout Okiebluegrass and the off yer rockers  ;D
