Ben Folds Five - Bluffing

Rock trio from Chapel Hill with Ben Folds (vocals, piano) as its frontman.

Who gave Ben Folds Five their band name - PokerLegend has it that passionate poker player Folds once dropped a full bad hand, exclaiming “and Ben folds five”, which will have caused some amusement for sure considering Ben's last name.

We do not know whether or not this is a true story. Ben Folds himself once said that he thought Ben Folds Five sounded better than Ben Folds Three, even though the latter is closer to the truth.
