#REDIRECT [[Artist/Name]]
A "performance name" is an alias used by a musician (not to be confused with the MusicBrainz term, "[[Artist Alias|artist alias]]"), for marketing or other reasons.  A particular person may have several performance names, and might also release material under their [[Legal Name|legal name]].
 
 
 
For this reason, it's sometimes necessary to create multiple separate artist entries for the same person in the database.
 
 
 
==Style==
 
 
 
* [[Same Artist With Different Names|SameArtistWithDifferentNames]] contains details about how and when to use performance names and [[Legal Name|legal names]].
 
* Note that only individual people have [[Legal Name|legal names]], not bands.
 
 
 
==Examples==
 
 
 
* [[Artist:8a338e06-d182-46f2-bd16-30a09bc840ba|Elvis Costello]] is the performance name of [[Artist:4d3924ac-7dc4-4632-9058-553119d6b951|Declan Patrick MacManus]].
