The Tim Robbins Experience (T.R.E.) is named after a maritimer.  

Tim Robbins was a student and an ok kinda guy who went to Halifax 
West High School a few years ago.  He grew up in bridgeview, a suburb, 
quite close to where my grandmother lives.  We went to the same 
elementary school.  We also played on the same house league team at the 
centennial arena.  I think the t.r.e. were named before the actor who 
shares the name started getting plum roles.  

if i was to start a similarly named band, i'd call it:  

The Jim Nunn Experience
