The Boomtang Boys are a Canadian dance-remix trio.[1] They are known for both their remix work and pop-dance music.

They are also credited with the famous Hampster Dance song from 2000.

Their debut album, Greatest Hits Volume One, was released in 1999, and produced the hit "Squeeze Toy" as well as "Pictures", both performed by Kim Esty. Greatest Hits did well in Canada, achieving gold status in sales. In addition to their own recordings they are known for several remixes, for artists such as Bif Naked, Econoline Crush and Kim Stockwood. The trio is still active and is involved in a number of production and remix projects.

Members Tony Grace and Rob DeBoer also tour internationally as the jazz ensemble Four80East.
