Brooklyn Future Roots group, The Boston Boys, formed as a quartet while attending the Berklee School of Music in Boston, Massachusetts in 2009. After performing extensively in the Boston area, The Boston Boys were honored to perform as one of the seven bands nationally selected for the campaign to re-elect President Obama. This led to the band receiving a musical diplomacy grant from the U.S. State Department to tour through Morocco, Cyprus, Israel, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia during the Fall of 2012.
Even with two projects released ("What You Say?!? in July 2012 and "Keep You Satisfied" in October 2013,) the band is happily unclassifiable as they continue to produce original and unique music. In October of 2013, The Boston Boys were the first band to participate in a studio/business residency founded by Zoo Labs in Oakland, California. The band worked with entrepreneurs, innovators, and engineers to produce a strategic business plan as well as their third musical project. As a result of using the same tools as the leading start-up tech firms, Zoo Labs and The Boston Boys aim to demonstrate and scale a radically improved model for modern bands. With innovative music distribution, strategic partnerships, a concurrent music education mission, and a slew of live performance dates on the calendar, The Boston Boys have officially launched with a new kind of momentum.
Their latest release, "Keep You Satisfied," will be supported by a tour through Western Europe in November of 2013, followed by two U.S. State Department tours through Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and North Africa. In total, The Boston Boys will have visited nine other countries outside of the United States in 2013.
