I'm starting to get some gigs in art galleries to play for artists openings. I mainly just play free form stuff with a few jazz standards and some vocals. I'll be playing with a female vocalist/percussionist. Mostly I just noodle around on an acoustic electric with some effects. Backround music. Haven't got a name yet. I need something for the invitations etc. Any ideas?

...sorry, I'm not very good at this. You'll probably get some helpful answers later on. :)

You could just put your names together like how Simon and Garfunkel or Shane and Shane did.

This is probably the best of the suggestions you have received so far.

For the type of gig you're describing, you don't want to get too funky.

So you have:

first name & first name
last name & last name
He & She
A Woman & A Man

I always liked:

Of course, that name's not for everyone :D

I'm keeping the really good ones for myself ;)

I've always thought Dumb & Dumber would be a great name for a duet.

Then again, I'm stupid like that...

Thujones (Thujone is the psychoactive ingredient in the drink absinthe, but is not allowed in the US..I always thought "Thujone" was a cool word)

Zip the Cookies (Band name generator name that had me rolling)

AcoustiQ (because misspelling words is kewl, nowadaze)

Twilight Sleep (an old school dental painkiller)

Woody B, You are the winner!
Thank you all for your replies! Many good ones.
But "Fingerpaint" it will be.
Thanks again all. Wish us luck.
This is something I've been wanting to do for a few years now.
There are quite a few art galleries around here both in the city,
and in the rural areas nearby too.
I went on an "art tour" to a bunch of galleries 3 years ago, and noticed that most of them had some sort of soft instumental jazz playing in the backround from CD players. So, I thought why not have a live musicain or two do it? I play that type of music. Plus it would have a visual appeal too.

Well, we shall see! :D
