Australian Trio THE BUCKLEYS add some “Boogie” to the holidays with “Boogie Woogie Santa Claus”

“Every so often, something special comes along. Something so cool and authentic that the world has no choice but to sit up and take notice. The Buckleys are that special something.” – American Songwriter  



OCTOBER 22, 2021 (Byron Bay, Australia) — The holiday season is just around the corner and Byron Bay, Australia siblings, The Buckleys have today released their Studio 54-inspired take on the Christmas classic, “Boogie Woogie Santa Claus.

After another year of challenges and lockdowns, The Buckleys decided to end the year on a high note recreating a Christmas classic with their own unique Rock n Roll twist – “Boogie Woogie Santa Claus.”

“Boogie Woogie Santa Claus” was originally released in 1948 by Mabel Scott and most famously performed by Patti Page in 1950. The Buckleys chose the Christmas classic for its uptempo, fun, dance vibes and feel-good beat to bring everyone a Rockin’ Christmas!

“We are so excited to release our fresh new spin of a 1940s holiday classic!   Ten years ago, we used to perform a Rockabilly Christmas Special as a young family band and this was one of the songs we used to play. To now be releasing it as our first official Holiday single, infused with Rockabilly, Swing, even hints of Surf Rock guitar and a 1940s style brass section from Nashville, is a dream come true.

We wanted to give Christmas a whole new sound with this song and make it feel both nostalgic and fresh at the same time. It’s been a tough year for everyone and as we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now, our goal is to get people feeling good and having a boogie with us to celebrate this wonderful time of year!”  said Sarah Buckley.

Bringing the Glam Rock energy to the dance floor in the soon-to-be-released vibrant music video clip, The Buckleys delivered a stand-out performance with all the energy and fun you would expect from the rising stars who are accomplished musicians, songwriters, and vocalists.

Shot in their hometown of Byron Bay, Australia during the recent lockdown, the clip saw the band working remotely with a team of producers and directors due to the travel restrictions.

Petrol Records Chairman Chris ‘CM’ Murphy had originally flagged the idea of a Christmas release with Linda Kury, VP, Commercial Partnerships & Label Relations, UMG before his sudden passing earlier this year. Chris had wanted to show the many facets of the band and their ability to blend their sound from Americana country to pop and now a rock n roll Christmas classic.  Chris always believed there was nothing this band couldn’t do!

Chris Murphy discovered a generational talent in The Buckleys, and they continue to shine and share their talents with all of us for the holidays. I am looking forward to next year and beyond as they continue to blossom and bring their music to Australia and the entire world,” said Linda Kury.  

So, as the holiday season fast approaches and Australia celebrates its newfound freedom, get ready to turn up the speakers and get your Boogie on with The Buckleys!
