Started by Nate Castle and Tom Torrento, PBM began its journey inside the halls of Cousino High School in Warren, MI. With each and every show, the band started to gain local recognition with their quirky, horn-infused rock, sarcastic lyrics, and unmistakable vocal harmonies—not to mention their hard work ethic.

In the beginning, the band's sound reflected the genre de'jour: ska. Influenced by bands like Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, Cherry Poppin Daddies, Squirel Nut Zippers, et. al. However, with new members brining different musical backgrounds to the group, the bands sound quickly morphed from a one-dimensional ska sound to a mix of rock, pop, jazz, blues and swing. The band's name changed from Peanut Butter Mosquitos to PBM (Poor Boy Music)

Over the years, the band's music connected to people all over the world as their songs appeared on compilations distributed by indie records labels RawFish Records, LittleGiants Records, and Honey Records. These compilations were sold in Germany, England, Japan and France. PBM's second album, One Sip At A Time, was released and distributed nationally in 2006.

They appeared on NBC's first season of America's Got Talent, and made it to the semi-finals. PBM has played shows in more than 40 states and toured internationally. After a 2 year hiatus, the band reunited in 2009 and is working on making new music and infecting the Detroit music scene once again. This story is not over...
