Subject: New Skiffle Group requires a name
From: Bugsy
Date: 22 Aug 06 - 11:27 PM

A bunch of us are putting together a Skiffle group with the aim of performing at the National Folk Festival in Canberra next Easter.

Trouble is, we can't think of a name and we have to get the application in by 30th of the month.

We'd like the name to reflect the fact that we come from Perth, Western Australia, and/or the fact that we're all in our 50/60's.

Any suggestions would be gratefully accepted.


Thinking caps on!

Cheers


Bugsy

Thanks for all the suggestions so far, (although I think that the elastic in some of our thinking caps may be a bit too tight)


bill kennedy - Perth is known as the sunshine coast and Western Australians are known as Sandgropers, so I suppose "The Sangropers Skiffle Group" is an option as well. Also "The Sunset Skifflers"



Cheers

Well Bugsy it might fit.
Before my voice gave out I had a group called "4 Strings and a Squeeze Box". Guitar, Fiddle, Bass, Mandolin, and Accordion. You could call yourselves "4 Strings and a Washboard"
Just a thought.

Bugsy, you're 90 percent there. Just add the first name of your washboard player and you become:
Washboard Sally and the Sandgropers Skiffle Band.
Come to think of it, call your band that even if your washboard player is John or Bob. When people ask, you can blame it on an age-related memory lapse.
OR: Call yourselves the Wiggles. That'll draw a crowd. Once.
Let us know what you decide. Also, this process might make a good story for your local newspaper. I bet you're getting suggestions from all over the world on Mudcat. I, for instance, am in Detroit.

I once read an article by the child psychologist Eda LeShan, on the topic of what preschoolers should be taught. One thing was "to trust adults." By this she meant that the kid should not be so isolated and overprotected that it curls up in a ball when a staff member says hello. A child should also have the brains and confidence to turn to a nearby adult if injured, sick or frightened.

I suggest you name your band "Trusted Adults."

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I logged on last night at the rehersal and showed the band the thread. They had a great laugh at some of the posts.

Eventually they decided on "Sunset Skifflers". As we're from the Sunset Coast and some of us are heading toward the "Sunset Years".


Oh, and by the way....."HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!" It's already the 25th over here


Cheers all,
