Many bands have gone, or goes under the name December's Children.

The first band named December's Children was originally a Cleveland Motown pop group, with two female vocalists. After one of the vocalists left, guitarist Craig Balzer's brother Bruce joined and they transformed into a psychedelic hard rock group.
They recorded their debut for Mainstream, but their deal soon dissolved and so did they.

Craig Balzer - Guitar, Keyboard, Vocals
Bill Petti - Bass, Vocals
Alice Popovic - Vocals
Ron Papaleo - Drums, Percussion
Bruce Balzer - Guitar

A more recent band are from Alingsås, Sweden, most active between 1999-2005. They are on hiatus since, but play together on special occasions. They play '60s retro rock/pop mixed with psychedelic and melancholic sounds. They released 5 EP's between 2000 and 2004. The sound varied much during the years.
