About

Contact us any time at aaronsoots@gmail.com!

The Local Boys are a band that has been waiting for the appellation "Americana", as "Bluegrass" just doesn't cover the material they do. While all members of The Local Boys have deep roots in traditional music, they also have a love for the musical styles that influenced and evolved from old time, country, and bluegrass.

The Local Boys are fairly standard in their acoustic instrumental arrangement. Guitar, Bass, Banjo, Dobro and Mandolin. They can accommodate anything from a duo act, all the way to a large production band! With four superb vocalists, who sing lead, as well as harmonies, they have an unparalleled ability to find the perfect combination of voices to render any song.

The Local Boys have performed at Merlefest the last 17 years running. In addition, they've hosted the Plaza Stage with the late, Grammy award winner, Tut Taylor. They actively participate in the outreach program, sponsored by Merlefest, bringing music to surrounding area schools. Look for them at the festival this year!

    Great way to kick off the wedding weekend!

    We hired The Local Boys to play Friday night for our rehearsal dinner. It was amazing! Their correspondence prior to event was wonderful and they did exactly as they said the day off. Many guests said it was "the best rehearsal dinner they'd been too" (but I'm biased). They played a great set list and their musical ability and sound was on point! I will definitely try to see them play again and consider them for any event in the future!

    These guys are solid. We had a great experience from first contact to the end of our reception. The band members are exceptionally cordial and accommodating. I would highly recommend this band for entertainment. The ceremony music was all perfectly timed thanks to Aaron's execution of my playlist. He jumped right in, having seen it for the first time, and it went off without a hitch. One of the many things that made these guys stand out for us(aside from TALENT and professionalism) is how they became part of the celebration. They smiled, cheered, and joined in on our celebration, which made us feel like we truly did have all friends and family present.

    The Local Boys performed recently at our wedding reception. They were the perfect band for the setting as we had the reception in a renovated barn. The guys did a great job switching between blue grass and other genres to get the party going and keep everyone having a great time...including audience participation on the cow bell! I'd 100% recommend them for a wedding reception or any type of party.

    Aaron was extremely responsive and flexible when we scheduled the event and talked about the songs for first dance and father/daughter dance. The band learned a song for us to use for the first dance (Better Together by Jack Johnson) and it turned out great.
