Note the original photographer made a mistake when labeling this picture. The band itself has a sign saying they are the CREBHEAD's Accordian Band" whereas the title on the photo is "Brookfield's CREBHead Accoridan Band." Many high-level, worldwide debates have been held in an attempt to determine the actual name given this group of musical artists. However, since this picture has surfaced, definite proof is available the band called themselves the "CREBhead's Accordion Band" and did not always use the name of Brookfield in references they made to themselves.

This group was noted for famous songs such as: Old Bridge Lineman; CREBbing in The Rain; CREBanooga Choo Choo; Wabash CREBonball; If You've Got the Money Honey, I've Got The CREBs; and CREBby Mountain Breakdown.
