Aren't the Dixie Chicks three people? Or do you only want to meet them as an entity? ;)

Re: band names -- embarrassingly enough, my brother was in a band in high school/early college. Their name? Morgan and the Buttpixies. The eponymous Morgan was just accepted to law school. My brother is taking the GRE with plans for a PhD in Religion or Art History. That won't come back to haunt them at all...
