Five Iron Frenzy (also known as "Five Iron" or simply FIF) was a Christian ska band formed in Denver, Colorado.
Five Iron Frenzy started as a local side-project of Roper, Hoerig, Ortega, and Kerr's band Exhumator. Never taking themselves too seriously, the band's name began as an inside joke. Although the original intent was for the band to stay local and help grow the local music scene, Five Iron Frenzy (FIF, or Five Iron) signed to Frank Tate's 5 Minute Walk records in 1996 and was touring nationally within a year.
In 1998, songwriter and lead guitarist Scott Kerr left the band on friendly terms and started his own project, Yellow Second. Private auditions were held for a small selection of candidates to replace him, including trombone player Dennis Culp, but ultimately it was decided that Sonnie Johnston of Jeffries Fan Club would replace Scott in the lineup. Scott's final appearance and the introduction of Sonnie Johnston with the band occurred at the album release party for the band's first EP, Quantity is Job 1, on November 3, 1998 at the Aztlan Theater in Denver, Colorado.
