About Five Iron Frenzy
Christian ska band Five Iron Frenzy was formed in Denver, Colorado in 1995. The band initially
started as a side project between band members Reese Roper, Keith Hoerig, Scott Kerr, and Micah Ortega, but they eventually
added more members to the band, and decided to go for a ska sound. After being signed to the independent record label, 5 Minute
Walk, the band released their debut album "Upbeats and Beatdowns," which reached the number 39 position on the Billboard Top
Contemporary Christian chart. The album opens with the track, "Old West," which criticized the treatment of Native Americans,
and would go on to become a recurring theme throughout Five Iron Frenzy's music. The album also spawned a music video for
the song "A Flowery Song," which ended up receiving a Dove Award nomination in the category of Short Form Video. During the
year of their debut release, Five Iron Frenzy embarked on a tour, playing about 150 shows during their first run. While they
were on tour, other songs of theirs began to enjoy airplay as well, including "Where the Zero Meets the Fifteen," which helped
to raise awareness about homelessness. The band later started to incorporate other genres into their music, including swing
and Latin music styles.
By the time Five Iron Frenzy released their album "All The Hype That Money Can Buy," they had
reached the height of their popularity, and further expanded their sound, combining influences of salsa and reggae as well.

Five Iron Frenzy toured all over, including Europe and South Africa.Five Iron Frenzy separated temporarily in 2003, but reunited
in 2011, and now they are back on tour and recording new material.
