Brooklyn electrified bluegrass/folk rock group The Boston Boys, who formed as a quartet while attending the Berklee School of Music in Boston, Massachusetts in 2009, released a new EP “Keep You Satisfied” on October 8th, 2013, which has been well received internationally. They will be supporting the new release with a series of national tour dates as well as a full-scale European tour sponsored by the State Department.
After starting off 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 two musical diplomacy grants from the State Department.
