The Nice Boys were a power pop band hailing from Portland, Oregon. They were formed in 2004[1] by ex-Exploding Hearts guitarist Terry Six, studio keyboardist Brian Lelko, drummer Alan Mansfield, and Colin Jarrell and Gabe Lageson of The Riffs, who, like the Exploding Hearts, were influenced by the punk and rock music of the late 1970s.
