The Boys, founded in 1980, played their signature style of polka music for over a decade. By the time the group disbanded in 1990, The Boys had recorded five albums, received regional and national honors including the United States Polka Association's "1989 Favorite Band" and "1989 Favorite Album" awards, appeared in a major motion picture, and established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the polka industry.
In 2010, Polka Hall of Famers Mike Matousek and Frank Liszka, along with former band mates Al Puwalski and Jeff Yash, reunited and added the talents of polka veterans Mike Evan and David Morris to form The Boys of today. Their "A New Day" CD won the Polka America Corporation's PACE Award for "Favorite Polish CD" of 2011 and the International Polka Association's "2011 Favorite CD/Album." The Boys' hit song "In My Old Polish Town" also won the PACE Award for "2011 Favorite Original Song." In 2013, the band released a new recording, titled "Boysterous" (see story below).
