Indie pop-rock band Boxer is the latest music scene darling here on Long Island. Seemingly overnight they have booked shows with a handful of hometown heavy-hitters, and played some legendary venues. Boxer consists of original bandmates, Lenny Sadowsky (vocals/rhythm guitar/songwriter) and Andrew Friedman (lead guitar), whom later added Polly Frances (bass guitar) and Johnny Pots (drums) to the lineup, locking down the rhythm and rounding out their sound.
Boxer’s name and logo are considerate and loving nods to influences that have shaped them. Boxer is named for frontman Lenny’s beloved friend Gail Boxer, who was taken from her loved ones too soon. Gail’s passion for all forms of art was so impactful it just seemed natural to incorporate her as a cornerstone of the band’s inspiration. Their entwined “A” and spade logo represents Lenny’s grandparents, who have played a huge part in who he is and in his songwriting. He and several family members have this design tattooed on them, and the band took a liking to the art and message. Using the design was “a no brainer” the band shares.
