A Letter from Kenny Kernaghan, from Rochester, NY

HI why is your name Shitty Shitty Band Band?
My address is 123 North Autumn Drive (changed).

Dear Kenny!
We were baptized Shitty Shitty Band Band back in the summer of 1996 after having played together for many years under many names. There are several underlying reasons why we chose this name, some simple, some complex. Some say we are in fact a band. Others might think we are a shitty band. More than one person has pointed out the uncanny physical similarities between our keyboardist, Stevie LaFollette, and Dick Van Dyke, the actor. As you may or may not know, Van Dyke starred in a movie called Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, the name of his flying invention/car
(see: www.flemingmultimedia.com/chitty.html)
The book that this film was based upon was written by Ian Fleming in 1964.

Our trombonist, Jeff, who bears strong similarity with neither Ian Fleming nor James Bond, thought this name would be good for a laugh. To his eternal dismay, the rest of the band embraced it in all seriousness and, to this date, we have not been able to get a decent gig in Vegas.
