Formed early in 2010, and named after vintage American jazz/ blues writer Langston Hughes’ famed poem “Dream Boogie”.
Dreamboogie, an act that is determined to create their own voice in Blues music, brings together musicians Rebecca Davey, Sam Buckley, Connor O’Neill and Robert B. Dillon.
Dreamboogie have twice won the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society (MBAS) annual Blues Challenge, which has sent them to Memphis USA to to represent Australia and compete at the International Blues Challenge – in both 2012 and 2016.
REBECCA DAVEY: Vocals
Rebecca is a powerful vocalist and an entertaining performer with a commanding stage presence. Her ability to engage an audience with a unique lyric interpretation, demonstrates that the Blues is as much about storytelling, as it is about instrumental prowess.
SAM BUCKLEY: Guitar
Before joining the Dreamboogie lineup, Sam performed with Wollongong Blues vocalist and bass player, Anni Piper (who has since moved to the USA and carved out her own impressive Blues music career). Sam is one of the most talented young innovators on Blues guitar, bringing with him a truckload of new Blues riffs and licks.
CONNOR O’NEILL: Bass
Connor has a Bachelor Of Music from the University of Tasmania, and the bass guitar rarely leaves his grip. Before Dreamboogie, Connor played bass in variety of acts, and toured widely in Australia, South Africa and the Middle East. Connor’s unique fretless bass playing style contributes to Dreamboogie’s signature grooves.
ROBERT B. DILLON: Drums
With a wealth of experience as a musician and recording engineer, both in Australia and internationally, Robert ensures a steady hand in the drumming and percussion department. Robert is renown and respected stalwart of the Australian music industry, who has performed with some of Australia’s leading artists, both on record and live.
In the 6 years that they have been performing together, Melbourne-based Dreamboogie have turned heads, opened ears, and made a significant impact on the Australian Blues scene – touring Nationally and performing regular shows at venues in Melbourne and throughout Victoria.
– Aint Nobody’s Business (2014)
– I’m Ready! (2012)
