How did you get together? The Dreamboogie boys wanted a singer, and Rebecca turned up to the audition with a case of beer. The beer was drank, and Dreamboogie was born. We did our first gig the following week.

Sum up your musical sound in four words? Blues versus hip hop.

If you could support any band in the world – past or present – who would it be? Denise LaSalle at the Mississippi Mother’s Day Blues Festival. Either that, or Mavis Staples at the Chicago Auditorium Theatre.

You’re being sent into space, no iPod, you can bring one album – what would it be? There are four very different personalities in Dreamboogie, so it would have to be a compilation: Millie Jackson, Bessie Smith, Memphis Jug Band, Gene Krupa, and Albert King would all have to be on there!

Greatest rock’n’roll moment of your career to date? Flying down the freeway on the way to a show, and having the bonnet of the van suddenly fly up and smash the windscreen while we were driving on the side of a cliff. We made it... but only just.

Why should people come and see your band? A Dreamboogie show is emotional, passionate and sparkly! The boys get the ladies’ hips moving in a very spectacular way.

When and where for your next gig? We’re playing at the Docklands Blues Festival! Sunday 5 Oct. All day, all free! It’ll be AWESOME!
