For those that complain there’s no music culture in the UAE, or there’s no support network we generally point them towards The Boxtones.
A self starting band, they’ve done everything – from corporate gigs to nightly residencies to creating their own incredible video shoots and performing original music in front of tens of thousands, they’ve broken the mold for local bands. And they’ve done it through blood, sweat, tears, countless social media posts and hundreds of hours of practise. And while their biggest gig yet might have been cruelly postponed twice – they’ll be taking to the stage with Sir Elton John in December now – they’ve just released their new album Home on Universal Music MENA. Well played guys, well played.
