A good name for an event
March 16, 2005 10:14 PM   Subscribe

We are staging a fundraiser for a community radio station, based on two programmes; Black and Blue (The lowdown of beats and forgotten soul nuggets. Funk starts here) and Giant Steps (Jazz for the 21st Century) We need a good name for the event. Something that sums up the styles of music and is catchy enough for a poster. Any suggestions?

To give you an idea our alt-country show was called "Y'allternative"

to give us more of an idea - any chance of a link to the radio station (if it broadcasts online?)

Out of the red, and into the black and blue.

Bring in the noise, bring in the money to keep our station operating: a funkathon to ensure that the kid down the street isn't the only thing jazzin' between your daughter's ears on in to the 21st century.

Wait, how long it too long?

(As it happens, I'm a subscriber to the station but have never even heard those shows)
Just ideas:

In Search of the Thirteenth Note?

PsychaFunkaJazzeDelic?

Maybe do the poster like one of those old soul/jazz record shops, and call the night something like "Artie Arr's Funk and Soul Shack"

perhaps less focus on the money and more on the music. We hold a couple of fundraisers a month so it gets kind of tired asking for cash all the time... love the funkathon tho...
