    So, we're arguing over a new band name, ever since we hired a new bass player, he's made a motion to change the band name, and it's more than a little annoying.

    So, we've kinda come down to a few names, and I've come up with some new ones with the help of a couple of people. So, it's up to you guys help us make a decision, here's the selections:

    Black Magic Voodoo
    Red Headed Step Child
    Butt-Ugly Groove
    Twilight Trio
    Crosstown Moonshine
    Midnight Voodoo Council
    The Funk Puppets
    Voluntary Gravity

    I think Butt-Ugly and Red Head are bad names. The marketing appeal is bad.

    Voluntary Gravity sounds cool. Gravity gives you a visual and something you can market/ design art work for.

    Just my $.02.

    Twilight isn't bad if you can pull it off with the general feel of the band members. I still think BMV fits you best personally.

    Everyone likes Black Magic Voodoo...but to me it sounds redundant. Like black magic on top of black magic. Whereas Midnight Voodoo Council is like you are secretly meeting to do your black magic, which is wicked cool.

    Dunno about Rave Assault, BUT, Highway Souls has a real nice ring to it V.

    Black Magic Voodoo rolls off the tongue really nicely though, which is why it feels nice when you read it, say it, see it, ect.

    Voluntary gravity is pretty wicked sounding. Next vote would be BMV.
