Born into his 63rd life in 2006, Borts Minorts has lived in San Francisco, New York City and Los Angeles with an alumni of 17 MINORCHESTRAL member / musicians and 13 dancers. With 2 nominations from the S.F. Weekly for Best Experimental Music and loads of glowing press, Borts Minorts and his arsenal of spandex jumpsuits along with his home made instruments, take pride in blending the absolute weirdest structured chaotic musical concepts of The Residents with the spirit and over the top showmanship of rock legends like David Lee Roth and Iggy Pop. Borts fits in nowhere and everywhere. Even the most jaded can't help but to leave a Borts show smiling!

Press!

“Borts Minorts has the rightful balls tightly squeezed in a deluxe form of mentalistic spandex, ready to make them pop like a bulging bulge full of outrageously confident sounding confetti of delirious creation.”

“Borts Minorts fashions a minimasterpiece of disorientation and unencumbered confusion by acknowledging no psychological or musical boundaries.”

~Joshua Levine - Tucson Weekly

“Catch his totally weird, highly entertaining live show!”

~Bill Pearls - Brooklyn Vegan

Borts Minorts is clearly insane, and also awesome, in rainbow socks and an old ladies bathingsuit. That aside, his extremely experimental and super fun stage show is only a thousand reasons to come to this show.”

“Borts Minorts stole the show with a geared up dance performance”

~Michele McManmon - LA WEEKLY

“This kind of behavior is caused by a little parasite scientists call Borts Minorts.Encased in a full body unitard, the Borts slides into a person’s ear, eats its way to the spinal cord and causes warm, ecstatic convulsions. You might find yourself playing a ski pole like its a bass. Or prancing around sandwiched between ballerinas (but are they really there?). Whatever happens, the infection feels good and you’re better off for it.”

—Daiana Feuer - LA RECORD

“ Borts plays a ski. Borts dresses in a head-to-toe spandex suit that walks a distinguished line between condom and intergalactic time capsule. You kinda want to reach out and pet Borts. You want to take Borts home to meet your family. You are also vaguely afraid that Borts might eat a kitten. Clearly Borts carries the torch once ignited by Laurie Anderson and Klaus Nomi, god rest his soul. However Borts is living dissonance, and while you might see him accompanied by dancers, they are less exuberant and more scary, scantily clad or dressed in burkas depending on whatever zeitgeist he’s feeling by the hour. His songs rarely span more than a minute and there is darkness. His eyes burn with a nostalgia hungering for the grit and freaks of old New York, leering behind the scenes of Taxi Driver and scarcely escaping that fated commute in The Taking of Pelham 123.. ”

 ”Borts Minorts. He’s more performance art than musician. It’s definitely bizarre. And hilarious. He confused nearly everyone at Union Hall earlier this year when he opened for Kelley Stoltz. Decked out in a white, hooded unitard and playing a bass made out of a ski, he was like if one of the Residents decided to become an aerobics instructor.”

~Bill Pearls - Brooklyn Vegan

“If Salvador Dali had done music he would have paled in comparison to the truly eclectic Borts Minorts. One part performance art, one part manic techno musical extravaganza, all around fantastically mesmerizing. In his trademark unitard, and flanked by his accompanying backup dancers, Borts manages to blend more action into 45 minutes than a full week at the circus. Borts Minorts is Cirque du Soleil on acid, no chaser.”

Mike and Jenny Cash - San Francisco Weekly

“Borts minorts will totally change the way you think about a rock show. His incredible infectious energy and undeniably unique presentation re-invigorates and satirizes himself and the format in one fell swoop. Challenging the audience to become part of the experience is just one aspect of this performers mission, and the dancers have the uncanny ability to actually make modern dance moves seem unpretentious and fun. If there is any sense of humor left in your jaded hipster soul you will come away from this show entertained and rocked.”

“Bay Area bizarros Borts Minorts to do their thing, which is quite unlike anyone else’s thing but perhaps most akin to Hanakengo, a dynamic Japanese duo of costume designers with synchronized dance moves. Clad head to toe in hooded white spandex bodysuits, the turbo-powered, rubber-coated Borts Minorts leap, bound, twist, and squeal to a skewed synth pop soundtrack. Throw gleeful backup dancers and a grim-faced flutist into the mix, and you get bewildered audiences all the way to Tucson, Ariz., wondering, “What on earth is this?” What it is might be hard to explain, but, no doubt, it’s worth the price of admission alone.

Pick of the week - SF BAY GUARDIAN

“Headliners Borts Minorts defy simple description. See, there’s this guy in a hooded white unitard and a headset mic who sings and flails and contorts — he might be an alien or an android, but it’s doubtful anything but an actual human would be able to bring such pure and bizarre joy to the stage. Equally enthusiastic are the Borts backup dancers, who flaunt leotards and fishnets (and the occasional pair of lederhosen), and whose energetic choreography demonstrates limber limbs and an admirable appreciation of jazz hands. Borts’s music is similarly befuddling, in the best possible way — a combination of samples, keyboards, horns, drums, theremin, slide whistles, a single-stringed bass made out of a snow ski, and god knows what else, but I guarantee you’ll not see anything as sense-assaultingly entertaining this leap year, or any other year.” -

Cheryl Eddy - San Francisco Bay Gaurdian

“Clad head to toe in a white spandex unitard, Borts Minorts performs spastic interpetive dance moves to mutant techno disco backing tracks. So as to not impede his onstage contortions, he wears a wireless headset mic through which he sings insanely processed vocals. Meanwhile 2 foxy backup dancers provide synchronized dance moves. Elsewhere on stage you might find a flute player, a theremin manipulator or a full time bubble blower. The Minorts experience has been compared to everything from Devo to fitness guru Richard Simmons, which gives some idea of the absurdity of it all. Check out Minorts “Dance Contestant” video on YouTube sometime. It’s a jaw dropper.“
