Virginia’s very own up and coming country music band with it’s own songs and unique sound and attitude like no other. Boot Rooster is a high energy country band established late 2009. The band is compiled of five musicians with many years of experience playing in other regional and local bands. Staying true the roots of country music, Boot Rooster was created with one reason in mind, to give country audiences what they want in today’s country entertainment, not exactly what comes out on cookie cutter radio these days. We are who we are and we don’t pretend to be or apologize for anything that we are not. Boot Rooster is best summed up by a quote from a first time guest at a recent show… he said, “You guys play REAL country music and you play it well.” So come see this REAL country band on Saturday Night of the Fair.
