The Peech Boys, also known as the New York Citi Peech Boys or NYC Peech Boys, were a American band that comprised Bernard Fowler, Steven Brown, Robert Kasper, Darryl Short, Larry Levan and Michael de Benedictus.

Their best-known composition is "Don't Make Me Wait" (1982).

The group formed at the Paradise Garage, being influenced by Larry Levan. They only released four 12" discs with "On a Journey" peaking at #56 in the 1983 US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. However, they are most known for their 1982 song "Don't Make Me Wait", which was one of the early hits in the New York house/garage scene, due to Levan's playing it at the Paradise Garage. "Don't Make Me Wait" was their only UK Singles Chart entry, peaking at #49 in November 1982.

They were signed to the West End Records label, but in 1984 they split up.
