My late "Sheiks of Dixie" drummer (leave it to the drummer!) gave us a
motto: "These Sheiks work like trojans". Our first public gig was a
freebie in a DC park for the Planned Parenthood organization, at a
celebration of founder Margaret Sanger's birthday. They made a banner with
the motto, which they tacked to a tree. I forget how they found our band,
but when I phoned them, they said the band name was a natural... Quoth I,
"Wait'll you hear what our slogan is." She laughed her butt off, and when
she relayed it to her cohorts, I could hear loud laughter ripple across
her office.
