Question Band (duo) name ideas?

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?

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:

The Smoking Potholes

Of course, that name's not for everyone

I'm keeping the really good ones for myself
