"Jack Boatman is a Milwaukee native with an extensive background in music. He prides himself on being an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, having played the violin for over 20 years and picked up several other instruments along the way, including guitar, bass, drums, and banjo.
He obtained a B.S. in Music Education from Case Western Reserve University in 2018. The following year he started his own wedding music business (Jack Boatman Music Services) where he both performs for ceremonies and DJ's receptions.
Jack also joined Dream City Strings in 2022, and is beyond excited to help develop Extreme Strings in the Milwaukee area! When he's not playing music for business or leisure, Jack likes to play video games, rock-climb, manage his softball team, and hang out with his fiancée Mara, corgi Chester, and cat Bean."
