The Bootstrap Boys will be performing in the Dogwood Center’s Black Box on Saturday, July 14 at 7:30 p.m. The group is a four-piece country band who have developed a fresh take on the classic country sound.
Their original songs might bring to mind the likes of Waylon Jennings, George Jones, or Johnny Cash. More than once The Boys have been compared to contemporary country acts such as Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton and other artists who have embraced the return of the country sound of the past.
The Bootstrap Boys include Jake Stilson, Nick Alexander, Josh McBryde, Jeff Knoll and special guest Tom Stolaski. Starting with the old cowboy and traditional tunes made famous by acts such as Sons of the Pioneers or the Carter Family, The Boys have developed a style embracing simple, solid musicianship with rich, four-part harmonies and rounded out with twangy electric guitar riffs and a very memorable performance style.
The Boys recorded their first full length album, "All Boots Aboard", in 2016. They were honored to be nominated and win the award for Best Roots/Revival Album of the Year at the WYCE Jammies in 2017. Recently, The Boys have played with the likes of classic purveyor of Juke Joint Swing, Wayne “The Train” Hancock” and Nashville darling Nora Jane Struthers, as well as having the pleasure of opening for another player in the “new outlaw” pantheon, Shooter Jennings.
Tickets are $12.50 and are available through the Dogwood Center Box Office, NCCA-Artsplace in downtown Fremont, or on-line at www.dogwoodcenter.com. For information, phone 231.924.8885. The Dogwood Center is located one mile east of downtown Fremont.
