Welcome to our english home on the internet. We are a band with a passion for music.
Happy New Year: 2016 is going to be a very special year for us as we will be celebrating our 25th Jubilee. The bands home town Muotathal will host an Open Air Show "Das Fest2" on August 20th and we will be Releasing our new Album on the same day.
16. Jan: We started our Jubilee Tour with a fantastic acoustic show in our home town of Muotathal. Ex "Bootser" Franz Föhn hosted the evening in the packed event room at his restaurant Alpenrösli.
Feb: After 11 intense days at Clouds Hill Studios in Hamburg the 13 songs for our new CD are all recorded and waiting to be mixed. The studio have their own apartments and we were able to take advantage of the culinary skills of Erich our drummer.
Feb 27th : The wonderful "Stadtkeller" in Luzern has been an annual date in our concert calendar for many years and we were thrilled to see another fullhouse in 2016.
March 12th : The International Country Music Festival In Zürich is the worlds longest country festival running from January 20thto March 20th - that's alot of music. Our amazing fans managed to fill the cavenous Albisgüetli hall and helped make it a great night - thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!
April 9th : This was a very special show for us in our 25th jubillee year. Restuarant Schlossberg (known by all as Castle Hill) was the very first venue to offer dustyboots their own show after the owner "Hampi" saw the band way down the bill at a country festival so when he asked us to include his place on our Anniversary Tour it was a "no brainer", of course we'll do it. Thanks to everyone for a great night and to Hampi for your years of support "We love you!".
April 30th : Another memorable show at the Four Corners Music Hall near Augsbirg in Germany but unfortunately for the wrong reason! We arrived only to be told that the house sound engineer was not going to be there and no replacement had been organised - WHAT!!!!! . Jim was able to set up a basic mix but we had to play the whole show without anyone behind the mixing desk. Big thanks go out to a wonderfully understanding audience. Thanks guys!
May 7th : The weather was stormy but that didn't stop the sell out crowd from attending our opening show of the season at the fantastic Beaver Creek Ranch. It was a brilliant night - big thanks to all the fans and hosts Armin and Trix.
May 22nd : A sunny sunday afternoon show in the grounds of the retirement home "Klösterli" in Unterägeri was an unusual setting for us but the large enthusiastic audience made this a very memorable and enjoyable concert.
June 26 : A fantastic Sunday Lunchtime concert at the International Trucker & Country Festival in Interlaken. The weather stayed friendly and we were humbled by the huge turnout. Thanks everyone!
July 02 : Innerschweiz Schwingfest (traditional swiss wrestling) - Despite the unseasonal downpour outside, the huge tent was filled to the brim with people. Thanks guys!
Aug 20. Das Fest 2 - 25 Years of dustyboots : Our jubilee open air had to be moved indoors due to bad weather but this didn't affect the party at all. The alternative venue was included in the planning and 12 hours of celebrations ensued. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!
