DREAMBOOGIE re-imagine and re-interpret the songs of great trailblazing Blues performers, with a growing repertoire of their own material, for today’s audience. Incorporating contemporary sounds and fresh arrangements, Rebecca Davey (vocals), Sam Buckley (guitar), Connor O’Neill (bass) and Robert B. Dillon (drums), retain the essential spirit and attitude of old Blues – with new ‘tude.
Since their formation in early 2010, Dreamboogie have constantly toured Australia, appearing at Blues festivals and venues in major cities and regional areas, performed on Blues Trains and Blues Cruises, been part of live-to-air radio show transmissions, and built up up a solid, ever-growing fan base in the process. A tight music unit with a reputation for delivering entertaining, engaging, impassioned live performances with Bluesy style and flair, Dreamboogie remain in high demand as a feature act at all kinds of venues and events.
Festivals at which Dreamboogie have appeared include: Australian Blues Festival (Goulburn NSW), Winter Blues Festival (Echuca VIC), Broadbeach Blues Festival (Goldcoast QLD), Brunswick Music Festival (Melbourne VIC), Queenscliff Music Festival (VIC), Docklands Blues Music Festival (Melbourne VIC), Gympie Muster (QLD), Melbourne Fringe Festival (VIC), Sydney Blues & Roots Festival (NSW), WestOz Blues Festival (Bolgart WA), Mordialloc Food & Wine Festival (VIC), Yackandandah Folk Festival (VIC), Uranquinty Folk Festival (NSW), RAW Festival (VIC) and many more. Along the way, Dreamboogie have released 3 albums, each of which has charted on the Australian Blues & Roots Chart with their debut album, I’m Ready, attaining the Number #1 position.
In 2011 and 2015, Dreamboogie won the PBS106.7FM-sponsored MBAS Blues Performer of the Year Challenge, both times representing the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society at the International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis, USA and reaching the Semi-Finals.
