The Welch Boys Bio:
The Welch Boys are a five member band from Boston. They were formed in 2004 by the guitarist, and founding member of THE BLUE BLOODS, T.J. Welch. Other band members include Ed Lalli on vocals ( Ed was also long time guitar player for Boston punk hardcore legends SLAPSHOT) Mark Powers on bass, P.J. Dionne on lead guitar, and Steve Maffeo on drums. The Welch Boys write short, catchy, and powerful songs that emphasize sing along choruses and aggressive guitar playing. They have a sound that is firmly rooted in the punk rock legacy of their hometown, yet unique enough to set themselves apart. Lyrically, they tackle a wide variety of subjects that convey the struggles of working class life all laced with an underlying core of hope and optimism. The Welch Boys have just completed their debut self-titled full length to be released on SAILORS GRAVE RECORDS in the states and I SCREAM RECORDS in europe in February 2006. The band worked with the legendary Jim Siegel (The Dropkick Murphys, Blood For Blood, and The Hope Conspiracy) at the Outpost Studio in Stoughton Massachusetts to produce the effort.
