BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- More than thirty years ago, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones were founded in Boston--and today is Mighty Mighty Bosstones day in the city, thanks to a proclamation by Mayor Marty Walsh.
"It's a great local band that's performing tomorrow night at the House of Blues," Walsh told WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Ben Parker. "We get a chance to recognize them today for all of their achievements and music and what they have done."
Walsh will present the band with the proclamation at their show tomorrow.
"That's my generation, what I grew up with," Walsh said. "It's exciting to recognize them being such a great, iconic band."
The Bosstones are hosting the 20th anniversary of their Hometown Throwdown concert series at the House of Blues on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Since their inception in 1984, the band has been one of rock music's most prolific touring and recording bands, with nine full-length albums among their other endeavors.
