Boot Juice invades the studio this Friday 10/5/18

Boot Juice, The band has been kickin' since 2012, indiscriminately leaving dance floors sticky in California and Idaho. We are a 5-piece band consisting of electric and acoustic guitars, three vocalists, bass and drums. The music we play has evolved over 10 years, starting when our lead guitarist, Evan Daly, would play his beat-up acoustic seagull guitar and sing his heart out to an apartment full of lost kids until the strings broke. One of those kids was me, Connor Herdt. Since then, I have been writing and playing music, and eventually founded BootJuice. We have had an evolving line-up over the years that has finally solidified with David Provost on Drum kit, Brett Worley on  Bass, Evan Daly on lead guitar and vocals, Jessica Stoll on vocals, and myself, playing acoustic and singing. It has been a long road, and it just keeps getting better. Our music will attempt to bring you to the street corner, the river side, or the dance floor. I've always wanted the music to hold on to the raw inspiration I felt sitting in that apartment as a 17 year old, searching for meaning in life.

In our fast moving world he wanted to make something compact and easy to reference.

Brett Vaughn (of The Mindful) Joins us in the Studio, Friday September 7, 2018, 4:00PM

Brett Vaughn (of The Mindful ) uses his passion in music to "find meaning in an often meaningless culture". Brett says If experimentalism is defined as "the philosophical belief that the way to truth is through experiments and empiricism", then the Mindful aim to be a musical expression of this belief. Founded by Berklee College of Music alum Brett Vaughn, The Mindful plays with sounds, styles and musical approaches at will, making use of primarily rock and jazz influences while also offering funk and Americana vibes. Not merely instrumental-based music, Vaughn's colorful lyrics narrate a vast and varied display of songwriting prowess and discovery.
