Since coming together in 2003 the Out of Favor Boys have emerged as one of the most entertaining bands in West Michigan. They regularly play festivals from the Lake Michigan shoreline to Detroit and from Grand Rapids to Northern Indiana.

Since 2005, they have been the hosts of Thursday Night Blues Jams in Kalamazoo. First, at Mr. Wonderful’s and more recently at The 411 Club. In addition to playing with local and regional musicians, hosting the jam session has given the band the opportunity to play with some national blues musicians like Tab Benoit, Studebaker John, Larry, McCray, Watermelon Slim and many more.

Featuring funky rhythms, searing guitar, and blazing saxophone lines, the quintet brings incredible energy to every show they play. Their high-energy sets feature their original songs, but also include favorites from contemporary acts like Tommy Castro and Tab Benoit and traditional favorites like Albert Collins and BB King.

The Out of Favor Boys put on a show sure to be enjoyed by contemporary and traditional blues lovers and anyone who appreciates great live music.
