Here's a note from Chuck Phillips about the band's name:

The name was given to us by our agent Steve Shankman because we couldn't agree on a name. He just picked it out without informing us and started booking us as King Solomon. We really didn't like it but were stuck with it and it worked out OK. We played the normal Continental Entertainment circuit, clubs, dances and proms.
