About Us  The Short Version

Since 2011: Good. Rock. Music.

Twin Cities based cover band American Bootleg is best described as a high energy tribute to Rock and Roll. Veterans of various Minneapolis bands, the 4-piece group brings 40+ years of collective stage experience. With a setlist spanning 7 decades, American Bootleg plays songs you know and love - plus some you've forgotten about.

Quality musicianship and attention to detail make American Bootleg a can't-miss live experience. With new songs constantly being added (or spontaneously attempted live), no two sets are alike, and no dance floor will ever be the same. Check out the upcoming schedule and come see a show!

Acoustic Shows: American Bootleg regularly plays acoustic trio shows, tailoring the setlist accordingly - a perfect choice for smaller venues and events.

Always Booking: Bars and Clubs, Community Events and Festivals, Taprooms, Weddings, Corporate Events, Private Parties, and more. Please email americanbootleg@gmail.com for more information on pricing and availability.
