Default Stage names....

Does anyone have one...

My band members have resorted to calling me 'Shooey Laces'...

Apparently it's because I'm always found tying my boot laces when it's time for my round...

Joking apart...I think it makes me sound a bit like a Jazz Cat.

I like it

Mikey Hanson is my stage name / nickname / name people use. It's the last name of my band, and all bandmembers have it, although we are also known by our real names as well.

Shooey Laces....that's good!

The drummer for Big Sam's Funky Nation is called Chocolate Milk on stage.


My half brother said if we ever have a band it will be called Brothers from Another Mother and I would be called "Clea Shay".

I don't really have one but our bass player went somewhere on the Internet that had a Blues Name Generator.

Mine turned out to be "Sleepy Crockpot Washington"

I like to take naps, I always have food with me and I was born in DC

My friends call me EP, or Evil Paul. It's an oxymoron. There's a whole back story to it, but I won't bore you.

When I was in a punk band, the bass player called himself Adam Slander, the guitarist was Dickey Trick, and they called me The Scar, but I liked Razor Burns. Just recently though I called myself Bon Paul when I posted it to YouTube.

nice one

In my surf band we all have stage names, all sea related; mine is The Dune, we also have Swell, Noserider and Hannah Lulu. We also take to each gig a box of grass skirts, but no audience member has yet to put one on.

Which also reminds me that in one band I was in we had a band condom that lived in one of the flight cases, just in case any of us got lucky... After ten years of it never being opened we decided that it might be best if we just got rid of it.

Might better be the subject on a new thread...but why have a stage name?

Doesn't reduce fraud...after all, we all know the real names of the people using fake ones once they become truly fraud worthy...

Marketing?....I find this dubious....

other than for the fun of it...???(not that it isn't a valid answer)

I think having a stage name allows for a degree of anonymity from the stage persona. And for many, it might be a more comfortable fit than the name the person might have been saddled with in real life.
