emacsclient starting with xbindkeys

Trying to get onto how to use emacsclient handily.

I've run into a couple of problems.

  I hoped to be a able to start two servers with `emacs --daemon=name'
  and connect to them using keyboard bindings by way of xbindkeys which
  is a small package that allows you to set keyboard combos to start
  things or issue commands inside an X session.
    For example:
   "xterm -bg black -fg papayawhip"
       control+shift + t
  (in ~/.xbinkeysrc)
  Allows me to start an xterm with `C-Shift-t'  while in an xsesssion
  (with xbindkeys also running, of course)
  Anyone know how to start an emacsclient in that manner?

  I've started the server with `emacs --daemon=name'
  But something like:
   "emacsclient -s name -c"
       control+shift + e
  Doesn't work although:
          emacsclient -s name -c
  works as expected when called from a running xterm.
  I've tried both of these notations as well... but didn't work
    "emacsclient -s name -c &"
       control+shift + e
    "emacsclient -s name -c -d :0"
       control+shift + e
  Starting the emacsclient from an xterm with or without the `&'
  operator provides normal connection to the daemon, but then I have to
  have an xterm running to support the emacsclient frame.
  Not a huge deal but I'd rather be able to start the emacsclient from
  an xbindkeys command.
