People are hungry for live music .... whatever the band name may be.
Could be worse, we turned up at a gig once in the 1980's in a remote location to find a poster billing us as a bluegrass band, I think they saw their mistake fairly quickly when we started loading in the Marshall amps.
Change your band's name to "Live Music".
I got booked into a country bar years ago. Our first time in so we didn’t know. At the end of the first set the manager gets all in my face so I said, “Who the hell told you we were a country band???” The agent. I showed him our song list and said, “I guess he screwed us both.”
I practically had to get in a fist fight with our Richard Cranium guitar player to get him to play some country and Elvis, but we finished out the weekend. He had played in a traditional country band for four years so he knew the material, he was just being a jerk.
...when the reality that we are not musicians, but rather over-talented beer salesmen hits home...
In fact, I think the next band name will be The Beer Salesmen.
Wouldn’t worry about it. We were once listed on the VFW calendar as “Free Lunch for Meth Lab Cleanup Volunteers”. And that is not our name.
Now That is an Epic band name...
this made me laugh for 5 minutes straight.
Was this at Bob's Country Bunker about two hours outside of Chicago, by chance?
Laughing as one of our band names was The Petty Gripes, and our friend/manager managed to get the name wrong on the marquis at two different events.
First we were the "Preddy Gripes," which didn't make any sense.
Next we were the "Peety Gripes," which also didn't make sense. At least we weren't billed as the Pretty Grips...
No, it was someplace in Alexandria, VA. It looked like the set off a Dukes of Hazzard show.
Maybe rename the band live music. Or + guests.
I like it when you see the name of your band on poster and it is mispelled.
how you gonna eat corn on the cob?
Make a couple of posters, put them up the weekend before you play.
