Dave Bootle

He's no longer performing at LaTeDa

Bootle is insanely talented. Rumor has it that the owner made some extremely offensive (and drunken) remarks about him, predicating Dave's departure.

No...a really talented singer/actor. Originally from Canada, but has lived and worked all over the world.

They quickly replaced Bootle with The Spectrelles. While entertaining, they aren't Bootle.

This isn't the first ugly story I've heard about the owner's tyrannical and drunken behavior.

We love the spectrelle and the owner of lateda. Everyone has an opinion, however, absolutely different entertainment option and we will be heading over ASAP to see them.

That's too bad. Dave is very good. He also sells real estate so I am sure he will surface somewhere. I have seen the Spectrelles and they are good too. Just a different style of show.

Bootle will do well, with or without La Te Da.

My main concern is the owner and his history with this kind of inebriated behavior. It's a small island when you're a local and word gets around quickly. This isn't an isolated incident.

The owner had been around for many years, he is successful and gives much back to the community. No need to bash and no need to involve visitors. I wish someone would take down your post, not very travel related IMO and mean spirited.

Bootle still hasn't resurfaced and it's sad to see LaTeDa just scrub him off their lineup.

I love LaTeDa, but truly think their owner is a terrible human being.
