“Their vibe is akin to classic rock, with those strong smoky vocals and amazing guitar riffs of Santiago perfectly supported by Neuberger’s bass and Adams’ drums.”
Indie Voice Blog (Get It Or Forget It Reviews)
“Blending a perfect mix of gritty rock n' roll, heartfelt-blues, and a dash of punk to taste, the band barrels their way through the urban jungle of NYC, with equal parts of debauchery and genuine reflection in tow.”
“A fist-in-the-air mix of gritty and catchy…a welcome sound for anyone itching for good old fashioned rock n’ roll”
GroundSounds (NYC Woman Premiere)
“The first of five tracks on the 'NYC Rags' EP is the song 'NYC Woman'. The bands concoction of blues and punk rock is at the very least feisty and potent. That's not to say the band cannot slow things down a little, they do and what's more they can add in some melody along the way. It's the raw natural delivery that makes Johnny & The Bootlegs standout, and an apparent love for what they are doing.”
With a true gritty, soulful rock ‘n’roll scene in New York being overrun by Indie rock in the recent decades, Johnny & the Bootlegs were a refreshing change of sound on the Rockwood stage.
