Boulter was born in Gillingham, Kent, and was educated at Gillingham Grammar School and later at Number One School of Technical Training in the Royal Air Force. From there he entered the Royal Academy of Music where he won Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals for his singing, and was awarded an Associateship of the Academy in recognition of his work. He was an "apprentice Airframe Fitter" in the RAF before becoming a professional singer. In 1960 he appeared in a South African production of Lock Up Your Daughters, and joined George Mitchell's Minstrels during the 1950s. He went on to appear in the stage and television versions of The Black and White Minstrel Show and on recordings made by the troupe. He also appeared in the 1969 spin-off series, Music Music Music, in which the minstrels appeared without their blackface make-up, following accusations of racism against the show.

In 1954 he married opera singer Loma St. Clair, with whom he had four children. Later, Boulter married West End musical star Anna Dawson. The couple retired to New Zealand. John's daughters, Phillipa Boulter and Francesca Boulter, are both singers and can be found on YouTube in the group DATA.

Boulter appeared as the male lead - Freddie Flowerdew - in the musical production of "Ask Dad" in the Jeeves and Wooster episode, "Introduction on Broadway."
