The Bootstrap Boys are an Alt-Country, Americana & Traditional Roots quartet from Grand Rapids, Michigan.
With rich four-part harmonies, traditional heartland instrumentation, seasoned players behind them, a DIY attitude and a capable RV, The Bootstrap Boys have steadily built a devoted following across Michigan, the Midwest, and beyond since their 2015 inception.
Currently, The Bootstrap Boys are hard at work at Rick Johnson's Cold War Studios (Bomb the Music Industry!, Mustard Plug, Radiator Hospital, Stepdad) on a yet-to-be-titled follow-up to 2016's critically-acclaimed dual release(s) "Country Songs for Sale" and "All Boots Aboard". Showcasing a maturer sound and an ever-increasingly-dynamic Country Western song structure, a late 2019 release and forthcoming tour are expected.
The Bootstrap Boys are: Big Jake Bootstrap, Nicky Bootstrap, Clyde Bootstrap, and Jeff Bootstrap. Their manager, personal chef, and spiritual adviser is Li’l Mama Bootstrap. They ramble the countryside in their classic Chevy Rockwood RV, affectionately dubbed The Delta Dawn, making friends all along the way.
