Five Iron Frenzy

During the peak of Ska music in the mid '90s, Five Iron Frenzy's members, Reese Roper, Scott Kerr, Micah Ortega, Keith Hoerig, Dennis Culp, Leanor Ortega, Nathan Dunham, and Andrew Verdecchio, joined together as what was once a small side project from the thrash band, Exhumator.

During the peak of Ska music in the mid '90s, Five Iron Frenzy's members, Reese Roper, Scott Kerr, Micah Ortega, Keith Hoerig, Dennis Culp, Leanor Ortega, Nathan Dunham, and Andrew Verdecchio, joined together as what was once a small side project from the thrash band, Exhumator. Gaining almost immediate attention, Five Iron soon realized their potential, ditched Exhumator, and began touring regularly. They soon received the attention of the small Waner subsidery label 5 Minute Walk records, and thusly signed with them in 1996 to release Upbeats & Beatdowns. After 2 more full length albums. a live album, and 1 EP, Five Iron released FIF2: Electric Boogaloo, taking the band's songwriting ability to new heights. The dark and aggressive nature of that album disappointed many fans, yet delighted many others waiting for Five Iron to break from their typical songwriting style. In November of 2003, the band called it quits and released two albums in the same year as a way to say thank you to the fans: Cheese of Nazareth, and The End is Near. Most fans believe the later album is the pinnacle of Five Iron's career because of it not only being the best studio release, but also with it contains the complete, final Five Iron Frenzy show. « hide
