The Poxy Boggards, founded in December 1993, perform original and traditional music of drinking and revelry. They got their start at the Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire, where they performed to crowds shocked by their vocal prowess and wit. Within a decade they became one of the venues most popular stage acts, rivaling the many nationally touring acts.
They were lauded as a major new voice in folk at the 2004 Just Plain Folks Music Awards, where they placed third in the Celtic Song category for their title track "Lager Than Life," and third in the Novelty Song category for "The Rooster, The Donkey, etc." At the 2006 Just Plain Folks Music Awards, they received Best Celtic Album for Liver Let Die and Live Act of the Year for their 2004 performance at the awards show.
In 2004 the Boggards began playing mainstream venues, first as openers and later as headliners. They have played to near-sell-out crowds as venues like the Galaxy Theatre, the Coach House and the El Rey.
