About the group name:
A literary allusion, the artistic and almost mockingly decorative Romeo Spikes were meant to keep young "Romeos" from climbing up the poles to meet their "Juliets" in the balconies of 19th Century Spanish townhouses of New Orleans. The presence of a diminished number of Romeo Spikes remain still today in the French Quarter and also sprinkled throughout Savannah, GA, Charleston, SC and Pensacola, FL.
