Bands Playing Saturday June 13 - Boots & Brews 3.0

The Rob Watts Band - On Stage at 3pm


Rob found his love for country music at a young age, as he recalls his parents always having it on at the cottage.
He revisits how he came into the world of music; "When I was 10, I played guitar for 2 months, then got bored with it, and eventually dropped it all together. Some years went by, and I found myself playing my stepdad's old Fender Stratocaster every day when I'd get home from school. Teaching myself how to play basic chords, and I really got addicted to it. Guitar turned into drums, drums turned into piano, piano back to guitar, and in high school I put my lips to the mic for the first time, and I haven't stopped singing since."

Formed in May of 2015, the members of the band are humbled to have played well over 200 shows, including opening for artists such as Thomas Rhett, Brett Young, Aaron Pritchett, Jason McCoy & The Road Hammers, The Washboard Union, Meghan Patrick, River Town Saints, Bobby Wills, Cold Creek County, George Canyon, Dan Davidson and more, as well as sharing the same stage as legends such as Alan Jackson, Florida Georgia Line, Dallas Smith and more.

In 2018, Rob and his band made a career dream come true by playing the Main Stage at Boots and Hearts, kicking off the final day of the festival.

The "Rob Watts Band" pride themselves on a high energy, crowd-involved, live performance and put their own spin on what's now considered modern country music by highlighting some of the key elemental instruments used in classic country, while keeping the tempo up, and the songs catchy and fun.

Owen Riegling - Headliner - On Stage at 9pm




Growing up in the small town of Mildmay ON, Owen spent most of his time playing hockey, and riding dirt bikes. He picked up a guitar for the first time when he was 11 years old, but didn't re-visit it until the age of 17. After discovering his passion for music, Owen began spending most weekends in local pubs playing country cover songs, and during the week writing songs.

At 21, Owen graduated from the Ontario Institute of Audio Recording Technology (OIART) for music production, and was finally able to produce and release his own music with his first release being in July of 2019.

Owen has since released 3 songs and does not plan on stopping. He recently formed a band in his home town where they are starting to pick up traction locally. He also plays with the BBR, a band from Hamilton ON, as vocalist and guitar player, you can see them play at the Stampede Ranch in Guelph. Owen is driven and more excited than ever to create new music in 2020. This is just the beginning.
