Then when John took his new direction, cut the dreads, did Who Do You Think You Are, and made the "new" group with Byron & Nicky, it became John Butler Trio, to try and differentiate the new lineup and music from the old times.

Otherwise just in general terms, yes, much more natural to leave off the definitive article.

Wow, really over-thinking it.
The only place it matters for me is tagging my FLAC files where it needs to be consistent. Or previously with TXT files when producing live recordings.
In both cases I use: "John Butler Trio"

To be honest, we dropped 'The' because it was a pain in the butt to title everything in a neat fashion by including 'The' into the title. Naturally it's spoken as 'the John Butler Trio' so "The John Butler Trio" was a bit redundant and just looked better without it.
We'd probably even go to just JBT if we could get the domain name, without that it's pretty hard to change all the branding so John Butler Trio is where it's at.
