There have been two punk rock bands called the Ducky Boys:
1.) The Ducky Boys are a street punk band from Boston, Massachusetts. Since forming in 1995 in the Charlestown neighborhood of Boston, the band has spanned over ten years with two tenures that have led to four full-length albums and over 50 songs. The band derives its name from the name of an Irish street gang in the 1979 movie, "The Wanderers".
Lead on bass and vocals by band frontman Mark Lind and drums by mainstay Jason Messina, while featuring a rotating cast of guitarists, the band released four full length albums before being put on hiatus in 2007. The band is currently operating on a "part-time" basis, performing a small amount of shows throughout the year, featuring the lineup of Lind, Messina, and Sullivan.
Over the last ten years, the band's sound has evolved from quick punk riffs to more stripped down rock music and a developing message of social consciousness. However, the band's influences, which include Rancid, Social Distortion, The Clash, Bruce Springsteen, and dozens of other punk and rock n' roll bands, still remains a prevalent element in the band's sound.
