Create a following script method (not tested, so I may have made a typo) by cutting and pasting the following into a script text box.

var name = item.filename;

var song = /.*\(/.exec(name); // get everything up to the first parentheses
song = song.replace(/\(/,""); // strip off the trailing left parentheses

var band = /\(.*\)/.exec(name); // get what's between the parentheses
band = band.replace(/[\(\)]/g,""); // strip the parentheses

return band + " - " + song;

Fixed and tested. Should work now. I found a couple of other issues besides not knowing that I had to explicitly cast the variables to strings.

var name = item.newName;

var song = /.*\(/.exec(name); // get everything up to the first parentheses
song = "" + song; // force song into a string (surprised this was needed)
song = song.replace(/\(/,""); // strip off the trailing left parentheses
song = song.trim(); // get that trailing space

var band = /\(.*\)/.exec(name); // get what's between the parentheses
band = "" + band; // let's make a string
band = band.replace(/[\(\)]/g,""); // strip the parentheses

return band + " - " + song;

Here is a simple Add Method way:
"Chicago - 25 or 6 to 4.mp3"

In the program settings, set word separator as space. Clear everything out and just input a
space " " (no quotes).

ADD: "(<Word:1>)"
At Index: "1"
Backwards: check

REPLACE: "<Word:1> <Word:2> "
Replace With: "empty"

Result:
"25 or 6 to 4 (Chicago).mp3"
