    How about " Less Is More"? Or you could use a name we thought of for our rock band back in the early 70's, "Cannibal Axle".

    I played with a band called the Whiskey Chorus and they have now retired, It's there for the taking and we won't mind!

    William Penn made a treaty of friendship with Lenape chief Tammany under an elm tree at Shackamaxon.
    Call your group the "Shackamaxon Symphonette".

    Thanks for the suggestion! We actually were toying with some other Wm. Penn-related name. I like the alliteration with your suggested name.

    Nice blend of instruments, and well-thought-out arrangements.
    I like your suggestions. Some good possibilities. Thanks so much.

    I always thought Marty Stuart hit the right note when he called his backup band "The Fabulous Superlatives". It's always a challenge to find the right superlative.

    No offense, but I would forget all of these names the minute my eye left the poster.

    I don’t think the name has to be genre-descriptive.

    Hmm, "The non-genre descriptives". Yes, but is it superlative enough?

    Thank you all for the great suggestions for our group name! I think many of the ideas would have been a good for the group. I really enjoyed the entire thread.

    We settled on a name suggested by Astro, the Delphi Consort. (thanks, Astro!!) The name is a great fit because half of our group resides in Philadelphia County and the other half in Delaware County...So it seemed make sense to capitalize both the D and the P...DelPhi Consort.

    If you are interested, here is another recording from the group.

    Thanks again for all the suggestions.

    Nice choice. I see it's legit music, so you wouldn't want mine: Ananda Plumes, or pheldy cheese incident, or... (though I'm sure it's been done to death)

    I believe a name should get your attention, and be a little funny. Why not just use your names until a good catchy name comes along. I live in South Carolina and when I go up north for a gig I call the band "behind yankee lines" how about "the amazing incredables"
    Anyway good luck

    Free-Reeds and Frets

    Reeds and Strings

    Reed Between the Lines

    Pluck, Suck and Blow : )

    Pluck and Play

    Think Brazil because there're is a history of Accordeon and Mandolin/Bandolim...
    Also the Accordeon is an Aerophone by definition.


    Also consider a single word that describes your music/musical intention rather than focus on the tangible obvious.. ie bellows, frets, strings, chords, keys, etc.


    There are some very fine Euro groups who play eclectic music with band/group names such as Naragonia, .. and I'll get back with some others.

    I would rather NOT see a name that sounds a bit contrived or new age vaudevillian(sp), your music is far too good for that.
