About Out of Favor Boys

Conceived in the basement of a rental house sliding slowly into West Main Street and and first realized in 2003 in a corner of O'Duffy's Pub in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Out of Favor Boys has evolved from a bluesish trio to a blues staple in Southwest Michigan.

The first Out of Favor Boys shows were their "OFB Trio" shows at O'Duffy's Pub, in the heart of Kalamazoo's student ghetto, featuring Danny Ouellette, Joel Krauss and Tony Sproul. In the summer of 2003, the trio added a rhythm section for a couple of shows across the state. By fall, they had added a permanent rhythm section and organist, Tim Brouhard, Kevin Dorcy and John Ford. Late that year, they won the KVBA blues challenge, winning the right to represent Kalamazoo at the 2004 International Blues Challenge.

In 2006, after the release of their second self-produced CD, John Ford left the band. Shortly thereafter, Kevin Dorcy moved to Chicago and "Mighty" Mike Porter stepped in to fill the void behind the kit. For much of the band's time as house band at The 411 Club, Tim Miller was the band's Thursday night drummer.
