With the growing popularity of the 'Detroit Sound,' PBM, or Poor Boy Music, has emerged from the D-town norm of garage-rock, rap and hip-hop, and is surprising audiences with a fresh style and a unique, fun sound. Since the bands inception into the music world in 1997, this eight-member group had been producing a sound that has been best described as upbeat, horn-powered rock. The hard work of talented songwriter/guitarist/vocalist Nate Castle, and members Tom Torrento, Steve Zdanio, Mike Thomas, Dave Jakubowski, Gerry Castle and Jeremiah Hoehner, has resulted in PBM's first full length, self-released CD, 'Overview'. PBM's music has been influenced by bands like Less Than Jake, Green Day and They Might Be Giants and is building a great fan base here in the states as well as in England. The September 2003 European tour produced the 'Manchester Sessions' a 3 song EP to be released in October 2003. PBM's love of music, raw energy, mad enthusiasm and desire to have fun is evident in their music, especially their live performances. PBM's sound continues to catch the attention of people, as their fan base continues to grow.
