It's For the Band, Man...



I told myself I never wanted to be one of those interfering mother-in-laws, but I simply can’t help myself. I wrote a post about my son-in-law a few months ago. If you missed it you can read it here.

Well, the band he had been in since 2000, dispersed in 2004. Life interrupted; jobs, marriages and children took precedence. He’s played in other bands since, but now all of his original band mates have reunited.

The name of the original band was Grandmachuda, but they have decided to shorten it to Chuda. This is where I interfere. I think if they aren’t going to use their original moniker, they should come up with something new (and better, sorry D), what do all of you think?

They’re the type of band that when they are playing out, they feed off of the crowd. A few of the bands’ musical influences are: The Grateful Dead, Phish, Bob Dylan, The Talking Heads and James Brown. They describe their style of music as jam, rock, funk and soul. You can get a feel if you listen to the couple of songs I had on that post about him. Again, if you didn’t read it or forgot the music you can check it out here.

Their first gig is coming up soon. So I’m asking all of you for ideas for band names; any suggestions?

Chuda sounds ...bad. I agree with you, something new and different something fresh - after all this name will be their marketing piece -aside from their music... i have to say there is allot to a name!

My ideas for band names are bad. Really bad. Trust me, you don't want to hear them.

Anyway you pronounce it, Chuda as a name sucks. It sounds dull. If they are that good, they need a better name.
How about Grada? No, that's not good...oh this is so not my thing. But NO Chuda!

Chuda is BAD, really BAD! I guess I'd have to know them personally to come up with a name, but that is BAD!

Being obsessed with 60s bands I always like names that start with The. Like - The Who, The Small Faces, and so on. The Chuda just doesn't work, I don't think. I'll see what I can come up with.
