the Borstal Boys

TAKING THEIR NAME FROM THE SONG BY THE FACES, THE BORSTAL BOYS ARE A ROCK AND ROLL BAND WITH TALENT AND EXPERIENCE TO SPARE. BASSIST ROCKY LAMONDE SAYS THE NAME DESCRIBES “A BUNCH OF GUYS THAT MAY HAVE BEEN OVERLOOKED. BUT NOT FOR MUCH LONGER.” 

the new Pittsburgh “supergroup” is made up of three members of Torn and Frayed — bassist Rocky Lamonde, guitarist Vinny Q & drummer Scott Wilson, keyboardist Joe Pelesky (formerly of the Houserockers), guitarist & vocalist Patrick Norman (of Rusted Root), and singer Mark Ponsonby. 

NO ONE MEMBER IS NEW TO THE ROCK AND ROLL SCENE AND UNDERSTANDS THAT PLAYING AND BEING IN A BAND IS A LABOR OF LOVE.

IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD, THE BORSTAL BOYS ARE A TENACIOUS ROCK AND ROLL BAND. HEAVILY INFLUENCED BY THE ROLLING STONES, THE BEATLES AND THE FACES, THEIR SONGS ARE INFECTIOUS, HYPNOTIC AND KEEP THE MASSES COMING BACK FOR MORE.
