What's in a name?

Bocal Soup is the name of the bassoon quartet we went to competitions with in my undergrad. I LOVED the name so I kept it and stuck it on my very neglected and under-utilized bassoon-centered blog. I think I have a gmail account with the same name even. Anyway, I understand why a new bassoon quartet might not wish to plunk this name onto its identity.

So, what to name a newly formed bassoon quartet? We don't want anything southwestern or having to do with the mountain ranges around Tucson - boRING! We don't have a restaurant sponsor and even then, I'm not sure we'd want to be the "In 'n' Out Bassoon Quartet". Any ideas? There must be someone out there with the right mix of magic, music, humor, and class. We're getting gigs now, surprisingly enough, and we're not bad so "Bassoon Quartet" just isn't going to cut it any longer.

Two fer the time of one!

Thanks to the great Anna Banana, I think I have a successful loaf of Amish Friendship Bread!

And thanks to the time it took to bake and the fabulous Other Rebecca, I think I have a flier for my recital!
