I play bass in a three piece.
Our current moniker is Kentucky Toast.
We have a shot of bourbon with espresso prior to rehearsing.
I know there are band name generators, but would like to come up with a Canuck connection.
Throw them out peeps.
Thank you.

edit; we're based out of Rockwood.

what kind of music?

bourbon and espresso doesn't exactly scream canuck. :)

Sudbury Tuxedo....doesn't get any more Canadian than that.

if only "leathertown" didnt have such a gay connotation to anyone not from Acton :)

Actually a pretty good name for a Judas Priest tribute though!

Hmmm,. I like local geographic and historical name connections

The Arkells ...oops already taken
The Quarrymen... Oh sorry

But seriously,
Limehouse Rickey's (nearby town + a drink)
Wheeler Green ( early settler who opened a dry goods store in the Acton area)
Esquisingers or Esquizingers (for Esquising township)
(Good old) Fast Acton Relief ( or FAR for short...leave off the T )
Tannery Row ( homage to the local leather industry)

May I add that I was instrumental in naming our neighbourhood grade school rock band... Melancholy Milkweed. We kind of drifted apart.

I neglected to add that our jam space is in Rockwood.

Well you could go the science, linguistic route and call yourselves "petrum lignum "since that's what "Rock/wood" translates to in Latin!

Or going back into history to make a local name connection, call yourselves "the Strange Brothers " by cobbling together factual tidbits from this anecdote...

John Harris, the first settler of Eramosa Township built a small shanty in 1821 followed by Col. Henry Strange in 1840. In the 1850’s the community, originally known as Brotherstown, became known as Rockwood.

Try one of those generators.

You might come up with some names that surprise and delight you.
