Five Iron Frenzy

Five Iron Frenzy were one of the seemingly thousands of ska-punk bands that dominated the post-grunge mainstream modern-rock scene of the late '90s. The group -- comprised of Reese Roper (vocals), Micah Ortega (guitar), Scott Kerr (guitar, backing vocals), Keith Hoerig (bass), Andrew Verdecchio (drums), Dannis Culp (trombone, backing vocals), Leanor "Jeff" Ortega (saxophone) and Nathanel "Brad" Dunham (trumpet) -- formed in Denver during the mid-'90s. After a few years of constant gigging, the band attracted a strong regional following and their 1996 debut album, Upbeats and Beatdowns, became a local hit. The record led to major label interest, and the band signed with the Warner subsidiary SaraBellum in 1997. SaraBellum reissued Upbeats & Beatdowns in the spring, paving the way for the November release of Our Newest Album Ever!, the band's second album. The live Proof That the Youth Are Revolting followed in 1999, and a year later Five Iron Frenzy returned with the studio album All the Hype That Money Can Buy. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Five Iron Frenzy is best band! So glad that they're back in action after all this time! :D
I don't get the ppl who took the time to complain about FIF's lyrics about their faith. Whose mind do they hope to change? The band certainly won't be persuaded to stop singing about God just cuz some ppl grumble. I love that FIF uses their talent to praise God and spread his message. Their music is positive and fun. If you have a prob with them, no one is forcing you to listen ��
Five Iron is stupid and you are if you like them also. Too. ;)

My favorite band of all time! So glad they're back from the dead (literally in Brad's case).

I agree; Pandora needs to get the rest of the FIF discography on here!! I am grateful they have Engine of A Million Plots, but they need EVERYTHING in order to achieve Pandora perfection. :)

I've never bothered to leave a comment on Pandora. Five Irons worth it though! I love them. Love Reese's voice, their authenticity , simultaneous goofiness and depth, and beautiful lyrics. FIF has been my favorite dice high school in the late 90's. Their art has been integral to my faith. <3. And I am one of many.

Everybody, go recommend to Pandora that they get Upbeats and Beatdowns, Quantity is Job 1, Proof that the Youth are Revolting, All the Hype, and FIF2: Electric Boogaloo on here!
Reese is so awesome. Love his voice!
This bio was lacking so much. Whoever wrote it has never listened to Five Iron. I have been following them 1997/8 ish I still jam the "green album" as we affectionate l y called it. I'm not as religious as I was then but I will never stop listening, something about those songs just take me somewhere peaceful.
If you think FIF isn't a Christian band you are a fool. skip to 1:20:40

Reese: A lot of people come up to me and say, 'Your lyrics and your songs are awesome.' But check it out. It's not us, we like it man, but It's the LORD.

Five Iron praises God every time the take the stage, whether it is dancing like fools, singing about Canada or being pelted by blue combs.

If you disagree, it's simple, you are wrong. Enjoy being wrong.

Fun fact: God isn't real
Love this band, but the religious lyrics get annoying. I put up with it on some of their really good songs.

Just found out that they're back together, and largely non-religiou s ! When their new album comes out, I bet it'll be awesome :D
Religion seems like an oxymoron when it comes to skapunk? lol sorry man, this phrase doesn't even make sense in any musically logical way. trying to pigeon hole a genre will always get you in trouble because musical movements are used to express feeling, not a specific message. no way to really get around it. anyway, that randomness said. FIF is my favorite bad, awesome music made by awesome people.
FIF is a Real inspiration to not only Christians but also to anyone who loves this type of music. Soooooo happy to hear they are releasing another album!!!
Its funny nobody says anything about ANY bands' lyrics except If they're christian. People are always gonna hate Christians I guess. Op ivy is awesome but you can't really compare these 2 bands. Op ivy is more towards punk and FIF is more toward ska. Ska-punk is a broad genre
Man, people gonna sing bout what's important to them. Since god is clearly that important to them you should be mature enough to be cool with that. Dwelsbacher
dwelsbacher, YOU'RE AN IDIOT! Good music is good music. Anti-religio u s music is good if it sounds good. Five Iron Frenzy is fun and sounds great. GO FIF.
Love, Love Love, this band! I also Love the Christian lyrics. It gives it a joyful aspect to their music. Never forget you roots man especially in god .

Religion seems like an oxymoron when it comes to skapunk. They don't mesh well. This band is talented but would be much better if they didn't sing about God damn Jesus Christ. I agree, that guy is stupid. You can't even compare Operation Ivy to them.
Decent-ish band. Definitely some musical talent that is kind of ruined by terrible religious lyrics. A few songs are fun to listen to but the guy who said Operation Ivy doesn't come close is a complete retard.
Seriously the best ska band ever! I'm sorry but bands like Operation Ivy don't even come close to these guys. Oh they are great.
In the soundless awe and wonder...
Way good stuff
i got out of touch with them many years ago then i went thur my sis cd's and found all of ther CD's im looking for some LP's of thers now
i've been listening to FIF since 1997 and i will never stop
Five Iron Frenzy is the worst band of all time, far worse than Nickleback. In fact, I've heard that Five Iron's next album will be a tribute album to Nickleback.
Played at the House of Blues Sunday night in San Diego! Still rocking it
Just saw them at FishFest on Saturday, sooooo sick! And Pandora definitely needs to update this bio page...
FIF is back, and in force. their kickstarter campaign reached the $30,000 goal in 55 minutes. new album to come in 2013.
great band, =l I F for ever...I tried the FIF symbol, didn't work that well
This bio is disturbingly lacking...

Best. Band. Ever.
penny.spitze r

My favorite Christian Ska, all the way!
Get it together pandora! The discography should be (at least more) complete, and the bio should include the phrase best at what they did somewhere.
The Best!

aristeia.of. d i o m e d e s
