About The Bootleggers

Top Folk & Irish Duo & Band from Liverpool!
Americana band
Public liability insurance of £5 million

The Bootleggers bring their own refreshing twist to the traditional and not-so-traditional Irish repertoire, covering The Pogues, Saw Doctors, Steve Earle - as well as a huge range of crowd-pleasers from modern acts such as Mumford and Sons and Adele, to vintage classics from the likes of The Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel. Expect exuberant singing along, lots of dancing, and plenty of hangovers - just as it should be! The Bootleggers can be booked as a duo for a more stripped-down sound, or as a full five-piece band for the full shebang!

Absolutely fantastic! Great fun! Took all our requests, learnt new songs for our wedding dance and had everyone on their feet the whole night. Couldn’t recommend them enough! Thank you for making our wedding so special!

We’ve had The Bootleggers as a duo and band many times at our social club! Once/ sometimes twice a month! It’s always a sell out and always an incredible night! The lads really know how to put on a show and always play to suit the crowd. Their repertoire is really extensive and I would highly recommend them for any party!

We booked The Bootleggers as a 6 piece for our Wedding! They were absolutely amazing and exactly what we wanted! They played something for all our guests! Aswell as the Irish stuff they played some Motown and even indie stuff for the younger ones. They really had something for everyone! All our guests kept saying how great they were! We hope we can see them again soon!
