Band Name Origins:

  • I was managing a hotel in Detroit in 1980 and they were playing a venue called Center Stage and staying at our hotel,Hamish told me that they were trying to come up with a name when a girl walked through the room and said "you're just an average white band" and he looked at everyone and said "that's it."From the horses mouth. Submitted by: David Smith
  • Was trying to to get a gig for the then 7 piece unnamed soul band. Ents convener at Dundee University, Keith Harris (Stevie Wonder Management) asked, "Are they any good?" The reply was, "Well, they are better than the average white band." Submitted by: obelix

Comments:
The Average White Band took this funky mainly instrumental dance tune to #1 on Billboard Magazine's Hot 100 charts in 1975. "Pick Up The Pieces" was extremely popular in Discos of the time. The only lyrics in the song appear half-way through, and it's the title repeated four times.
