Hockey Rock in the New York Times

Back in February, I went to see The Zambonis play at Freddy's Backroom in Brooklyn.

In a New York Times' article about the ice-cleaning machine, lead-singer Dave Zamboni gets quoted:
“It’s kind of weird — even people that don’t know anything about the sport know the Zamboni,” said Dave Schneider, a founding member of a hockey-themed band called the Zambonis. When the company learned of the band years ago, the musicians pleaded, “Please don’t make us change our name to the Ice-Resurfacing Machines,” Mr. Schneider said. The name stayed, and a licensing agreement was struck.
