V-Roys Contest

Wanna win an autographed copy of the just released V-Roys compilation Sooner Or Later (as shown to the left there)? It’s easy, all you gotta do is leave a comment below with your best answer to the following question: Why was the the first V-Roys album titled “Just Add Ice”?

The winner will be chosen at random, but the first person to answer the question correctly will receive adulation, personal satisfaction, and your name will get thrown into the hat twice. [EDIT: Scott Erickson has answered correctly and firstly, consider this your adulation. If anyone has any stories about the v-roys they want to share...please, do so in the comments. Also I should have mentioned, contest will run until next friday, Oct. 7th]

Good luck, and while you’re at it check out this killer video of Mary

    The V-Roys were originally called the Viceroys, but the band name was taken so they changed the their name to the V-Roys- add ice and you get V-ice-roys.

    The V-Roys were originally the Viceroys but were forced to change their name due to legal threats from a Jamaican band already using the name the Viceroys. That’s the story of why the V-Roys’ first album was titled Just Add Ice. V-ice-ROYS.

    Was lucky enough to the V-Roys in Knoxville quite a few times, and extremely lucky to have been able to the Viceroys as well.

    Would love to win an autographed CD. THanks for the contest!

    Well you have the answer. I’ve followed the band and solo projects for years but never got the chance to see them. We actually put out a 7″ with John Paul Keith a couple of years back. Carry on!

    I know I’m not first, but here’s my answer anyway. The V-Roys were originally called the Viceroys, but there was another band, a Jamaican band I believe, named that, adn there was some thing said about it, and the band we all know and love here changed their name to the V-Roys. Hence, to get back to the original name, you just have to add the ‘ICE’ back in.

    Agreed. V-Roys always better than the viceroys. Enjoyed seeing them with Steve Earle. Love Scott Miller’s work. Wish to God I could be there on New Year’s Eve…

    Just Add “Ice”–V-Roys + “ice” = Viceroys–band’s original name. Saw them in San Francisco in the late 90s.
