Well, we, at the Highland High School, are starting a trombone quartet. We're gonna play jazz, rock, classical, all that sorta stuff. But we need a name. Semi-professional, semi-fun. Any suggestions?

Not particularly appropriate, but I'll offer it anyway:  "Olde 'Bones" - it's actually in use.

I briefly had a quartet in college called The Overtones. I thought it was clever, but no one else seemed to think so.

Where do you get your music? I want to start some here, but I don't want to spend a ton of $$ for music.

Oh, and as for names:

The Great _______(fill in with region) Trombone Company (ala GATC)
Quadrabones
Tetrabones
For Bones
4B (especially funny if any of you use Kings Grin )
B^2^2

A good place to start for a beginning group is Rubank's "Trombone Symphony" pub. by Hal Leonard.

Then there's all the pieces pub. by Musicians Publications, Alafia Publishing, International Music Company, et al.  There's a lot of stuff out there.  See Peppers, Solid Brass Music Co., and Hickey's web sites just to name three.

"T-Bones Rare" is taken.

How about "Four Bonesmen of the Apocalypse"?

I'm one of the Highland Trombone quartet members taking advantage of all of your good ideas. I work with "Tbone Stakes" and yes, we really appreciate it!  :-P

What about "Fourplay"? Or would your school not want that name associated with it? Or, "Beefy blatty, big and splatty"?

That was the name of my college dormitory intramural teams (we were in house 4).  It didn't help that the abbreviation of one of the names of the dorm was WC.
