Bruce Lee Band

"The Bruce Lee Band" is the name given to the releases of Mike Park and his backing band which has so far included Less Than Jake and the Rx Bandits.

The band are on Asian Man Records, Mike Park's record label and are officially known as "The B. Lee Band" to avoid legal complications with the estate of the late Bruce Lee. In an interview, Park stated that after the first album had been released under the "Bruce Lee Band" name, Lee's brother Robert happened to work in the CD manufacturing plant responsible for pressing the album. Robert Lee contacted Park to give him a friendly word of caution that Mike should probably change the name.

The second release, an EP featuring Mike Park and the Rx Bandits, was released in early 2005 under the "Bruce Lee Band" name, titled "Beautiful World".
