    Inspired as I was by (a) the 'Tough one, this' thread and the 'tradition' of making up alternative names for those in the classical music field (i.e. Herbert von Caravan, Andrew Preview, Placido Flamingo, Orange Juice etc.) I thought I'd start a thread whereby we can offer alternate names for brass band personalities. All in the best possible taste of course.....

    So I'll kick off with

    Raf van Hoovering


    Roy Nuisance

    Roger Webster's not really an alternative name, but did send a certain 1950s singer called booth running for cover! :biggrin:

    How about that famous Marxist composer Derek Bourgeoisie? (Bit intellectual that one + only changes one letter!)

    When we used to play "Whiter Shade Of Pale" in Juniors, it just had WSOP written on top of the parts, which we used to say stood for "What a Shockin' Ol' Piece."

    How some of us who aren't fond of it refer to "Light walk" shouldn't take much working out. :shock:
