|No matter the era, place or genre, boy bands have been and will always be the favorites of female fans, no matter where they have screamed, fainted and fantasized. Boy bands have come and gone and for some, their memories will live forever. The one thing you can count on in life is that a change is gonna come, and soon the world will be introduced to a family affair.
A family of two brothers and a cousin, traveled and lived from one state to another, but eventually settled in Jacksonville, FL and calls it home sweet home. Brothers, Mack Baker and Marcyy Marc and cousin, Pretty Eyez are Da Pretty Boyz; pleasing to the eyes because they look good, but pleasing to the soul because they sound good.

In 2011 their first mixtape, “Flash Drive” was downloaded in a flash and their fans let them know they wanted more; and in 2012 a second one, “3 Royal Children” was here. Those mixtapes gave their fans a taste, but now the world will share that experience and then some, as their first album, yet untitled is in the mix. Songs like “Uh-Uh”, “I Like the Way” and “It’s A Party”, are musically vigorous, but their debut album will be like gumbo; a little of this and a little of that. The production of Travon Gutzmore is dynamic and each song will have you salivating and asking for seconds.
“We appreciate the compliments and don’t want to be known for that, because our performance is what will stand out. We want to take our fans breath away with our choreography,” says Mack Baker. “Having our performance so on point is critical. I want our fans to be able to relate to our lyrics if there were no sound, and they just watched us,” adds Marcyy Marc.
With the looks, music, production and performance, what more would they need? Preparation, guidance and someone who believed in them. Furquann, CEO of Florida Boy, an independent label based in Florida has been instrumental in their journey.
Within the past year Da Pretty Boyz have performed at Tom Joyner’s Family Reunion with Mindless Behavior, Diggy Simmons, Soulja Boy; Little Big Man Records (LBM) and NFL player Chris Johnson’s Yacht Party in Miami; Pat Charles, Executive Producer of BET’s 106 & Park: Spring Invitational at Venice Beach with performers The Rej3ctz and Cali Swag District; Club Vain in Orlando, FL with Travis Porter. They also have been giving fans memories that would last a lifetime, the sweet sixteen birthday parties all over the country in Lima OH, Omaha NB, Chattanooga Tn, Charlotte NC, and Baltimore MD, to name a few. They gave those teenage girls a moment they will never forget with performances that put smiles on their faces that were picture perfect. A highlight was just a few days away on the most popular music video show in the nation.
Da Pretty Boyz are BET’s 106 & Park 2012 All-Star MVP Wild-Out Wednesday (W.O.W.) champions and they will perform live on-stage with B.o.B. on Wednesday, September 5, 2012, and the most incredible thing is the fans chose them. “We have been on 106 & Park three times, and like they say, “three times is a charm”. We are ready, excited and humbled, but we are gonna do it and I will show my style, which is a little edgy, but the girls love it,” says Pretty Eyez.
Da Pretty Boyz have been preparing for this journey for a long time and the road has been challenging, but just like any family members, they have unconditional love and they have each other. They have been busy and will get busier, but just like life, change is gonna come and they were born ready.
