Steel Toe Boots (Country Nights)
The Steel Toe Boots are a dynamic country-rock act hailing from the Vancouver area. Childhood friends David Borys and Dave Hartney recognized their mutual love for performing music and all things country and rock’n’roll over the course of many rowdy nights in country bars, and both attending college on the prairies. Since the beginning, The ‘Boots have always focused on writing and recording original material, while putting together the most entertaining, high energy show they can at great venues and events across the country. The band is currently working in the studio with John Ellis on new material for 2013
In 2009, The ‘Boots released their debut album “Cross the Line” sending three singles to radio (“Coming Back For You”, “Dream Tonight” and When A Cowboy and a Cowgirl Fall in Love”). The band’s performance highlights include repeat appearances at the Merritt Mountain Music Festival, main stage at Whistler’s Campground “C” festival, main stage at the Rockin’ Riverfest in Mission, numerous television and radio appearances, a songwriters showcase at the 2009 Canadian Country Music Awards based on the strength of their debut album, as well as several nominations for Rising Star (2010 & 2011) and Group of the Year (2012) by the BC Country Music Association. Dave and Dave were also honored to perform and host a portion of the 2012 BCCMA show.
Currently backed by drummer John Tate, bassist Chad Drover, and the multi-talented steel/guitar/keys player Jay David, The ‘Boots have never iced a better lineup. The band’s reputation for showmanship, hard work, and dedication to their craft as well as great live performances has won over countless fans and garnered respect in the industry. These boys are one’s to watch, if you see The Steel Toe Boots on the marquee, come ready to party.
