If you plan on being bigger than just a local act, then you should consider protecting your name on the federal level. You would not want to book some big engagement in another state under your name only to get a letter from a lawyer saying that your name infringes on his client.
As noted in my last response, I am happy to discuss it with you in more detail so you understand what is involved.
Trademarks are federal. The state law is a waste of time.
