Frankie Boots and the Country Line plays two nights at Moody’s Bistro, Bar and Beats.

Moody’s Bistro Bar & Beats will play host to a Northern California folk-Americana act for two nights this weekend, when Frankie Boots and the County Line takes up residence at the downtown Truckee venue.

Self-described cult leader, guitarist and vocalist Frankie Boots first got his act going in 2012 Sebastopol, California, abandoning a bartending career to take to the stage. Peddling a varied sound that draws on country, blues, rock, gospel, bluegrass music and more, he and the Country Line have been playing in the San Francisco Bay Area and around the country ever since.

Boots is regularly joined by some combination of Timothy O’Neil (banjo, mandolin, vocals), Josh Jackson (guitar, trumpet, bass, vocals), Tony Schena or Zack Sumner (bass), and Ricky Lomelli or Zach Garn (drums) onstage as the County Line.

Boots and company have appeared alongside the likes of Robert Earl Keen, Leon Russell, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, and many other well known folk-country artists. The band was voted Best Country/Americana by the North Bay Bohemian weekly, which described the frontman as “an effective singer with just the right dollop of rasp in his inflection; he can be plaintive when required, but excels at bending notes and drawling out vowels for more emotional material.”

The group recently returned home after kicking off 2016 with a tour of the American South, with shows in Arkansas, Texas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and more, returning home just in time for a Valentine’s Day show at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. Frankie Boots and the County Line has appeared a number of times at Moody’s Bistro in recent years, most recently in December 2015.
