Band Name Origins:

  • I'd just like to put something straight- yes, most of the entries here are correct about the jamming of the band and the Iroquai tribe. ZephyrZ, however, is 100% incorrect, firstly because Jamaroqui is not one person. Second, because the lead singer of Jamiroqui's name is Jason Kay. Not Jamie Rockway. Submitted by: sunshine
  • The name Jamiroquai is a conglomeration of the word "jam" and the name of the Native American peoples, the Iroquois but mispelled "iroquai" as Jay Kay said into an interview. Submitted by: murlancio

Story about this misheard lyric by: Jason

When I heard this for the first time, I was so certain the actual lyrics were 'Biggin Hill' that I had to play that section over and over again just to make sure, as Biggin Hill is the name of an airport near London and associated with World War 2! Only looking up the lyrics did I realise how wrong I was!
