Johnny Bootleg

Johnny Bootleg is a blues rock band from Fort Langley BC. Formed in late 2016 by frontman Sean Michael Simpson the band is set to release their first EP of high energy blues rock tunes this summer 2017. Drawing inspiration from past great artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and led zeppelin Johnny Bootleg has put their own modern twist on a classic genre. Drummer Kristoff Meir brings a hip hop back beat to the table with his electronic suitcase drum giving the band a more modern drive and sound. Originally formed as a duo with Sean and Kristoff they recently recruited Keith Heuston on bass to fill in the low end. Catch Johnny Bootleg perform their original blues rock tunes duo or trio throughout the many music venues greater Vancouver has to offer. The songs of yesterday played in a new way.
