Help pick name for a new Langley-based band

Should it be Real, Real Van?

Or maybe Van the Band.

Cypress Avenue?

Or should the band name be Wild Night?

There’s also The Morrison Project or Domino or The Van Band.

Help a new Langley Van Morrison tribute band choose a name.

“We have been struggling with coming up with a name, so we decided to put it out to a vote, after we narrowed it down to our favourites. We thought that it’s a great way to help decide, and we can get rockin and performing with an ‘official name’ chosen by our future fans,’ drummer Brad Dirks said.

By day, he’s the owner of the digital firm Cyberscape.

The lead singer is James Minchau, a 42-year-old in sales.

On guitar is 41-year-old Trevor Saunders who owns Mutiny Inflatable Boats. Dirks is the drummer.

A safety officer by profession, Mark Cole, 42, has bass duties while two of the members have made careers in music.

Dave Cole, 59, is a professional musician and 56-year-old Randy Morrison is a music teacher.

Several of the members played together years ago in the band Flittin Jiggers.

Dirks and the other members have been rehearsing and did a recent video shoot for their new musical project.

But they can’t book gigs and do all the other music biz stuff until there’s a name.

The survey is structured that people go to and select their favourite name.

Anyone or any age can vote, from anywhere, on a computer or mobile device. It’s not restricted to local residents but there is only one vote allowed per person.

Based on voting the name will be determined Tuesday, Nov. 25 so don’t hesitate.

To link to voting, they can go to the Facebook Page where there is a link to the online survey.
