names needed
posted by soe 1:42 am

I need some names for a cappella groups in my novel. Ever wanted to name a band or a singing group? Now’s your opportunity…. Leave me a comment with your ideas.

(For those who did not attend a liberal arts college in New England, an a cappella group is a singing group that does not use instrumentation in their performances. Some adapt modern pop music and fake the instrumentation with human voices.)

(Edited to add: As the strains of my favorite Kris Delmhorst song came over the computer speakers tonight, I passed the 15,000 mark. And it’s not even 3 a.m. yet!)

Category: nanowrimo. There is/are 6 Comments.

the one thought that came to mind was the subdudes but maybe that is already a band?! hubby has just offered the aces. sorry we’re not more helpful!

How about:

– Vox Personae
– The TinselTones
– The Voices of Intelligent Dissent (a.k.a. The VOID)
– The Tone Poems
– The Harm Onyx

– Power Suck Low Rise (the name of a low rise quad of geeks who had lots of geeky electronics, I always felt it should be the name of a band)

– Ono Mato Poetic (starring a Japanese or Korean boy named (stage named?) Mato Ono)

– Los Voces de la Máquina
– Groovy Tuesdays

– Miauler (babelfish claims this is French for “caterwauling”)

– Analog Ringtones

– The deVanyels (singers would probably be D&D players in Ren. Faire garb. Name is a reference to Mercedes Lackey’s Last Herald Mage series, in which the main character, Vanyel Ashkevron, wanted to be a bard but was instead chosen to be a Herald Mage.)

– B Sides
– Cover Girls
– Consonance

– The Em P. Three (group of three with names (or at least stage names that can be shortened to Em. P., such as Emelio Patterson, Emanuel Petron, and Emily Petey)

– Sixpence
– Fashion and Beauty Consultant Quartet
– Nurse or Re-rhymes
– The Grateful Deaf
– Snuffleupagus’ Esophagus
– Squeeling Pigs in a Poke
– Yellow Bow Ties
– Ground Control
– Sister Mary Clarence’s Choir

It’s amazing how similar 50’s doo wop group names are to a capella choir names, other than Grey Kitten’s suggestions. They’re more out of the 70-80’s musical ebb. Though I’m partial towards the grateful deaf.

Ivy tones
Crib notes
Monks and Nuns (but not if the school is Catholic)
Song bytes
Steed and Mrs. Peel’s Children
Many little lambs (baa baa baa)
Merry medievaleers
Chants and chanteuses
