    sells to crowds who live in trailer parks, and those gigs don't pay very well. It's not that we didn't like our name, it's that we
    *have* to change it, and as long as we're thinking up a new name, we might as well use it to open a few new doors.

    Actually, that's the formula we're trying to avoid. One guy exclusively
    books a very large number of the private parties and higher paying venues in
    Dallas, and he has consistently refused to book us, citing specifically that
    "you're a southern rock band, that's not what my clubs want...", despite the
    fact that our set list is almost identical to several of the bands he books.
    And we're consistently better than more than half of the bands he books. He
    just can't get past the image. So, if we want to get past making $50 each
    per gig, we have to change the image, and since we have to change the name
    anyway, this is a good opportunity to change the image along with it.

    horrible band photos, many in front of the ubiquitous brick wall?

    Kamletow.

    Sounds like a small town. I'd love to visit it.
