Little River Band

Little River Band name origins - millstream chichester national park, wa (colin chartres)The soft rockers from Melbourne were first called Mississippi. That was considered to be too American, so an alternative had to be found. On the way from Melbourne to a gig in Geelong their coach passed by Little River (Victoria). Eureka! 

But what a pity that the men did not have a bit more patience: further down the route they also passed Geelong Corio, Lovely Banks and Moorabool – now that certainly are a few fine band names!

Active: 1975-present, AUS
