THE PRIZEFIGHTERS are Minnesota's first and only Traditional Ska, Rocksteady, and Skinhead Reggae band. The band started out as a solo project of Aaron Porter, aka Lord Grab and Flee in 2004. After a few years of recording all the tracks and playing all the instruments, THE PRIZEFIGHTERS came together in 2006. Matt Morse and Jordan Porter enlisted from Aaron's other band, GYLBOTS. Tim (Tooth) Freeman stepped up to the drums, quickly learning the Jamaican drumming styles essential to playing Traditional Jamaican music. Despite the devious misgivings of the group, OJ (Whitney Olsen) of the big apple (valley) now lends her talents at the keys to our crew of miscreants. Another GYLBOTS artist, Josh Thomas, joined to add depth to the jazzy, soul-full tones with his sexy sax. The final addition to the band came in the form of tall man Nathan Peters and his trumpet. With a reportoir of scorching originals and classic covers, THE PRIZEFIGHTERS are on a mission to spread the Sound of Young Jamaica to a new set of ears in the Twin Cities. .
