Jackie Boy - A Baseball Song - On the Radio!!

Boston, MA - July 12th, 2024 — Rock duo The Immigrants have re-released their baseball song "Jackie Boy- Requiem for a Slugger" to be played during the seventh inning stretch at Fenway Park. The song is an uplifting rock anthem, a must-have for any playlist, and a tribute to the band-leader, Bill Sheridan, who passed away on January 4th, 2021 after a tough battle with cancer.

Bill’s band, The Immigrants, performed at many venues in the Boston area including The Rat, The Bog, The Middle East, Club 3, T.T. the Bears, and last but not least, The Causeway. His songs were often played on college radio, most recently by The Hawk, 104.9 FM in the Lakes Region.

Brian Bernard, the DJ at The Hawkrocks.com 104.9 FM offered a double-shot tribute to Bill on his show, Backstage, by playing two songs by The Immigrants on the Radio.

The Immigrants“At the top of the show, we will play two tracks from The Immigrants, who very recently lost member Bill Sheridan."

"Bill and his brother Dan are longtime members and big supporters of our local music scene and Bill will be greatly missed,” commented Brian Bernard, on his show Backstage.

The two songs, Long Gone and Jackie Boy by The Immigrants, were played on the Radio, with a special dedication to Bill Sheridan in between.

Live at The CausewayMusic Review: Jackie Boy — "This is a polished single!"

Jackie Boy takes me back to Alternative Rock Anthems like The Pixies' "Here Comes Your Man" and Weezer's "Buddy Holly"

by Ama Cruz

Jackie-BoyBoston, MA - July 6th, 2024 — I'd just like to begin by expressing how much I love the name of this band, The Immigrants, as well as the name of this song, Jackie Boy - Requiem for a Slugger.

The instrumental performances of the drums and guitar takes me back to beloved 90s grunge alternative rock anthems like The Pixies' "Here Comes Your Man" and Weezer's "Buddy Holly" with the melodic guitars, and roughness, yet a song that makes you want to dance -- like Jackie Boy. This is a polished single!

With the sound of a baseball game and a cheering crowd, rooting for our underdog, Jackie Boy, The Immigrants blend a cool melodic, surf-rock guitar, a superb vocal performance, reminiscent of Black Francis of The Pixies, or Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth. This is classic alternative rock at its best!

Jackie Boy will be deeply appreciated by audiences who love alt. rock, grunge, shoegazing, and noise pop. For audiences who love live performances, or anyone seeking REAL and raw music these days, given the pop, synth and auto-tune world we are living in, be sure to check out The Immigrants.

~ Atlanta, Georgia ~

The Immigrants — Summer, 1995

Amazingly unpretentious music from this Charlestown, MA duo. If you're looking for busy arrangements and mountains of studio tricks, you can skip to the next review.

But if you like smart pop delivered in a straight forward fashion with no frills or gimmicks, you'll want to check out The Immigrants.

My favorite tunes here are "Jackie Boy," "Changemaker," and "Shot to Pieces."

This here thing goes to show how cool underground music really can be.

Tribute to Bill on the RadioShe stood there
Without a thought,
without a care.
I asked her, her name.
She said it softly, like a refrain
to a certain song I knew,
I forgot the words, I got confused.


She stood there
I turned my eyes as not to stare,
To steal a glance
On second thought, if given the chance to steal away
I don't know her, But I got her name

Martina QuoteRadio Review by Martina Dörner on CBJRadio.com

Boston, MA - May 23, 2024: Martina Dörner from Germany provides a Radio-Review of The Immigrants on CBJRadio.com & Belter-Radio.com and plays Enterprise Ride, a song by The Immigrants.

Hi this is Martina from Germany and today I have a band for you whose story is as unusual as it is very touching… The Immigrants.

The band's sound is one of my favorite genres - a brilliant mixture of rock, pop, and a touch of punk - simply brilliant - entertaining and definitely addictive, but in a positive sense. Anyone who has heard the first song will definitely want more, I can promise that with a sound and lyrics that quickly grab you and won't let you go....

It doesn’t take many more words to understand that this story is something very special and now we will hear Enterprise Ride, a tribute to Bill and a wonderful song.

The RatBoston, MA - February 26th, 2024:

A trip to Boston - a trip down memory lane. Bill called me up, Dan, I got us a gig at The Rat!! This is where The Jam and The Police played. We met a girl named Caryn, a DJ. She told us to send our demo to Mikey Dee at WMFO. Subway Station on College Radio!! The Rat inspired the lyric line to Subway Station:

I’m just a rat in a habitrail
I’m just a rat can’t you see my tail
Subway Station, Destiny, Destination.

The Immigrants

These newcomers sport an intriguing sound with an incantatory edge not too far short of compelling...

The Immigrants

Their melodic instincts are quite keen and the vocalist's phrasing is original and chuck full of irresistible hooks. The next Morphine?
