Boyd said he got his start at Northglenn High School in the marching band under the tutelage of Dave Marvin, who has been teaching there for 35 years. Marvin commended Boyd's work ethic.
"It takes hours and hours a day to perfect the craft," Marvin said. "You have to play with all sorts of musicians and all styles, and that's what Mike's done."
He added: "Everybody wants to be a rock star, but when you see someone who really has the extra performance ability, it's something special. We see a lot of kids come through who want to be what Mike can be, so it's really fun to see him succeed."
Savage Henry bandmate John Jeffers said Boyd is technically precise, which he attributed to the marching band experience.
"As far as Mike's chances at the local level, he just blows everybody away," Jeffers said. "We call him the 'Energizer' drummer.

Caramel Carmela - Till Death Do Us Party

Gen-Y is showing the world that life can be one big party, and the post-hardcore act Caramel Carmela has the album for its youthful revolution. "Till Death Do Us Party" is a vigorous statement of vocal superiority and is adamant in extending the life of a thought-shelved local genre of throat-addled comp-rock. The pleasure is in its variety, phasing around keen aggression and addictive hooks. Rules? Responsibility? Taxes? They're all for the birds. Until death we intend to party.

Savage Henry

This is a dangerous album to take in your car. It's so poppy and up-tempo, it encourages what the British would call "spirited driving". It should come with a warning label and a disclaimer the band will not be held responsible for speeding tickets received while listening to it.

Shoe-gazers beware...Savage Henry is one band you just cannot stand still to, so expect to do a lot of dancing.

Few local recordings are as skillfully played and cleanly produced as Savage Henry's...
