our local bluegrass society has set out a challenge, scratch up a band, invent a name,
and do a two song floor spot. we have got the songs but can't think of a name
so what do you call a New Zealand trio, comprising of a jazz musician, a country music player and an old folkie trying to play bluegrass?

This one

http://www.mandolincafe.com/archives/bandnames/

should generate "The Grassy Grass Grasscutters" at some point.

Being a bit more local, Paspalum and the Prickly Feet?

(Where in NZ are you? My brother played bluegrass mando in Hamilton for a bit).

Off subject a bit, but there is a recently-released CD called: BILL CLIFTON & THE HAMILTON COUNTY BLUEGRASS BAND "Two Shades of Bluegrass." It was recorded in 1970 when Bill Clifton was our de facto Ambassador of Bluegrass to several countries.

Somehow I missed hearing him then (I was mostly in Auckland at the time).

Hamilton County only exists in the bluegrass imagination - the county around Hamilton is Waikato.

Somewhere I read that Clifton was working for the CIA while he was spreading the bluegrass gospel round the globe in the 60s and 70s. Oh well. If only they'd all been that harmless.

No, Bill Clifton worked for the Peace Corps. US gov but certainly not related to the CIA.

I played in a band with Dobro player Reg Buck. We were called "Buck & Loose Change".
Another BG band we named after a tractor. We were called "McCormick".
If you live near a river, "The ______ River Boys".
If you do blue material, maybe "The Grassholes" would work.

A few years ago, a pal of mine had a band called Farmer's Union Creole Kings. They went to a festival in Adelaide and were told to take the name off the bass drum, because of the initials!

We have a local group called Southern Tenant Folk Union. They leave the reader to work out what the acronym is.

Seems to me that a group based in Petone has a better right to the brand name "Faultline" than this lady:
