Band names that get eggcorned

Back in the early 70’s the Almond Bros. use to play free concerts in Pedmont Park in Atlanta. Wow, those were the days.

Got any more?

Re: Band names that get eggcorned

For the sake of the ignorant (read, yours truly), who were the Almond Brothers?

That would have been the Allman brothers.

Re: Band names that get eggcorned

I recently read something in which the bluegrass band The Cache Valley Drifters were referred to as The Cash Valley Drifters. Maybe the perp was thinking the valley was named after someone by the name of Cash, or maybe they were thinking “valley rich in gold or other resources” = Cash Valley?
Or maybe not.

Allmonds and acorns, I guess. Nuts, the lot of us.

Don’t forget Southside Johnny and the Asbury Dukes, or his earlier band, the Amboy Jukes.
