The Trouble With Boys

Louisville, Kentucky

Born between the years 1995 and 1996, The Trouble With Boys were raised in the post-grunge alternative aftermath influenced by groups such as Nirvana and Pearl Jam, and classic rock fueled videogames like Guitar Hero and Rockband. This equation has created a hook-heavy, guitar pop that is reminiscent of Weezer, Blink-182 and the Foo Fighters. At MPMF 2009, the Cincinnati Enquirer called the band "Saturday's greatest spectacle" and described them as a "grizzly old bar band.  Glammed up in a way that made them resemble the mini-Van Halen in the Hot For Teacher video, the band looked the part and nailed all the arena-rock conventions too, from convincing guitar solos to call and response interaction from an adoring crowd."   This band’s mixture of hard rock, teen spirit and ceaseless energy create a quirky songwriting style that you would expect from a generation that understands ADD as much as AC/DC. The band melds heavy guitars, pretty melodies and punk rock sensibility.
