Boombox Poets is the brain child of the founding members from the Alternative group, Institution, established in September of 1999, based out of Louisville, Ky.
With a Strong and Passionate Following, we've been blessed to play with acts know as Ying Yang Twins, Nappy Roots, Bukshot, Three Days Grace, Cold, Ill Nino, Trivium, Karnivool, and many more,
Things took a turn for the worst and after 10 plus years of playing songs together, the band split because of personal and scheduling reasons.
The core of the group, Josh French and Mike Burch knew this was not the end of there musical endeavors, so they decide to quickly rebuild the brand under the name " Boombox Poets " It was something that truly represented what we are, Artists looking to Inspire and raise the bar any way possible.
Our First two releases under the BBP name " Writer's Block Vol 1 and 2 " sold out rather quickly upon the respective releases and we are anticipating the release of " Writer's Block Vol 3 " in the near future.
As BBP, We've played with Major Artists Including, Rittz, FLAW, Hed PE, Rehab, Bubba Sparxxx, Villebillies, Afro Man, Young Bleed and a Number of Great Local Talents in our City.
Boombox Poets Recently Added Josh Hujo and Rodney Adams to the Lineup, and will be also building an exclusive band for live Performances.
Whether its the amazingly Energetic Live show, or the Hard to the Core, Real Life Lyrics and Harmony's, that can do no less then tap even the Hardest of emotions.
Always remember that the true essence of being real is within yourself, we are just the Guides to show you thru Rhythm and Sound.
Be Original, Stay Original.
" These three gentlemen stepped out on stage and proceeded to spit some of the most original lyrics I have heard from the 502 Scene in quite a while. They had the crowd's attention and people were responding well to them. These guys had a mellow sound, almost reminding me of the band Rehab. If you get a chance check them out, you won't be disappointed."
