Now in its second season, CSU’s Contemporary Artist Music Series sponsored by Bohemian Foundation presents the ska/punk band Party Boys of the Century.

Emerging as premier ska band

Although still relatively new to the scene, Party Boys of the Century is slowly becoming a driving force behind northern Colorado ska/punk.

Evolving from humble beginnings as a high school band, the powerhouse eight-member group is now one of the premier ska bands in northern Colorado. With so many musicians to draw inspiration from, they offer a diverse range of musical styles.

'Bring your trumpet, come to practice'

It was in early 2011 that founding member Andrew Raymond, lead vocals/trumpet, talked Ian Schmid, trumpet, into coming over for practice one day.

Coincidentally, that was also bass player Drew Miller's first day, as well. After that, Elliot Schwebach, saxophone, Nathan Danztler, Tyler Diel, drums/percussion; trombone; Matt Carroll, guitar/vocals; and Jerod Parker, baritone saxophone, all joined the group in different ways, and the group has been rocking together ever since.

“We are super stoked to play at CSU,” said bassist Drew Miller. “It has played a huge role in our lives and development as a band – we’re so excited to have the opportunity to bring ska music to such a great community.”

Music to jam to

From Irish inspired punk to down-tempo reggae, and from down and dirty funk right back up to straight ahead ska punk, every show has something each audience member can jam to.
