The Boston Boys @ Room 5

Room 5

143 N. La Brea Ave.,, Los Angeles,, 90036


Future Roots band The Boston Boys play Room 5 Lounge in Los Angeles on Friday, April 25 after an extended tour concluding with their second visit to Morocco.

Their tour in Morocco was one in a series of rewarding opportunities to reach new audiences around the world in partnership with the U.S. State Department. In only two years, The Boston Boys have performed in over a dozen other countries, both by their own initiative and through tours in partnership with the U.S. State Department.

Always the product of teachers and mentors, The Boston Boys are educators themselves and often lead educational workshops in conjunction with their performances. In October 2013, they were the first band to participate in a Music Residency sponsored by Zoo Labs in Oakland, CA, where they recorded their third EP (scheduled for release in 2014) and studied entrepreneurship with distinguished faculty from the California College of the Arts Design MBA program.

Mandolinist, guitarist, and lead singer, Eric Robertson, initiated the project as a student at Berklee College of Music. He, along with multi-instrumentalist Duncan Wickel, bassist Josh Hari, and drummer Nicholas Falk, deliver a fusion of bluegrass, soul, rock, jazz, and pop inspired by bedrock artists like Paul Simon, Ray Charles and Wilco. Theirs is music made by independent and entrepreneurial musicians with control over their careers and the drive to reach communities around the globe on their own terms.
