The Name

"The Accessories" was Debbie's idea.  It was, well, okay, but it was run-of-the-mill.

Greg observed that five out of six members went to Rutgers, so he came up with "Five of Six".  That was nixed.

Then one day the band was sitting around discussing what other things needed to happen to start getting booked, such as business cards, PA, bio's, etc., and the subject turned to getting publicity pictures done.  Jeff G. said, "I've got this cool suit I could wear," and Jeff S. immediately said "Cool Suits -- that would be a great name for the band."  Tony & Jeff G. went wide-eyed and both said "Yes!"
