Mark Reitan, of Boots:
Country music singer-songwriter, Mark Reitan, of Boots, delivers hooks for days with well-crafted modern country songs.
Fargo's own BOOTS is a group of four music veterans coming together to sing songs, pick like hell and entertain the folks of the frozen North.
Featuring 3 unique songwriters in Mark Reitan (mandolin), Rob Ashe (guitar), Nathan Pitcher (guitar) and a powerful one man rhythm section in Travis Atwood (bass), the boys in Boots craft songs arranged with powerful 4 part harmonies and tasty, experienced licks. Drawing from folk, bluegrass, blues, gypsy jazz and outlaw country, the band shows a wide range of influences and taste that helps carve our their place among the modern musical landscape.
After releasing their first EP in December of 2013, Boots hit the road hard in 2014 playing to crowds all over the Northern plains including music festival slots at Big Wu Family Reunion, Revival, and Roots On The Red sharing the stage with incredible talent from all across country (and at least one ocean).
