You were in the band, then you were the band (akin to Kelsey Grammer IS John Wilkes Booth). Now you go solo, but you hedge your bets, dragging the band name with you, just in case folks don't know who you are. You treated that name like bloatware; now it's reversed - your name faces bloat (but only briefly, you hope): "tonight, Teddy Pendergrass Formerly of Harold Melvin And The Blue Notes". Just don't sign autographs that way.
