The unstoppable and tried and true Mighty Mighty BossToneS are: Dicky Barrett, Joe Gittleman, Chris Rhodes, Tim Burton, Joe Sirois, Leon Silva, Ben Carr, Lawrence Katz and John Goetchius. The ambassadors of the ska explosion continue to bring their message to the masses and this summer will hit the road in support of their new album While We’re at It produced by Grammy Award winning Ted Hutt.
With over a 30-year career Boston’s best dressed band has built and continue to build a devoted following with their unique brass-infused brand of punk rock. “The Mighty Mighty BossToneS and I are extremely amped about the upcoming shows. We’ve been enjoying the time we’ve been spending together working on the tenth full-length BossToneS release, WHILE WE’RE AT IT so it seemed like a good idea to roll on out and into some live action BossToneS good fun.” –says frontman Dicky Barrett.
While We’re at It, slated for release this summer is the final part of a musical trilogy that began with Pinpoints and Gin Joints in 2009. With the songs fully recorded, the band has been busy applying finishes touches. “I describe the album as the very best of what we do best, other members of the band are calling it our best album. Collectively we all can’t wait for people to hear it!” — says Barrett.
The Mighty Mighty BossToneS have been a staple in the music world since the 1980’s and have racked up more tour miles than they can probably remember. Over the years they’ve earned the reputation as one of the hardest touring bands in rock and they are still going strong. In December of 2016 they released a limited edition 7”, their version of the song “What the World Needs Now Is Love” (produced by Lawrence Katz and the BossToneS and mixed by Paul Kolderie) featuring an unreleased original BossToneS song “I Won’t Go Out Like That” as the B-side. 2017 saw the band headline Riot Fest, play the 20th Anniversary of their highly successful and long-standing holiday party, The HomeTown ThrowDown and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh presented them with a proclamation declaring December 28th Mighty Mighty BossToneS day in the city of Boston.
