BOOGIE PATROL...a high energy band
Boogie Patrol has steadily built their reputation as one of Western Canada’s premier acts and has garnered acclaim and an enthusiastic following since the group’s inception in 2007. A 5-piece-group that continues to create superb original music based on their collective influences. We’re talking Blues and Rock’n Soul, with a dose of Funk all thrown into the melting pot to create the sound that is Boogie Patrol. A stylistically unique group that is all about bringing loads of energy to the stage and to their music, with a goal of appealing to all walks of life.
Boogie Patrol boasts a frontman influenced by the grit gravel greats of music past and is backed by a cast of some of the most unique and well versed musicians you’ll find most anywhere. Some of them even hailing from Japan to New York to of course homebred Canadian talent!
The band’s latest release, Man on Fire, has received rave reviews and continuous charting/airplay in Canada and beyond. Most recently Boogie Patrol was nominated for Electric Act of the Year in the Maple Blues Awards!

What People Are Saying
Holger Petersen, Stony Plain Records, CBC Radio, CKUA and SiriusXM.
“Through constant gigging they’ve found their own voice as a band. They connect with every audience I’ve had the pleasure of seeing them perform for regardless of the challenge. I highly recommend them!”
Ric Hall, Guitarist for Buddy Guy
“Boogie Patrol is off the HOOK, they’re on fire!”
Jim Warner, Wild Oats & Notes Festival
“Cranked out a passionate, balls-to-the-wall set early in our festival that made them the BUZZ for the rest of the weekend…”
Richard Emery, L.A. Beat
“Boogie Patrol played a sizzling show of original music that would have been right at home in a dirty Chicago juke joint. They connected on all levels, with the band members playing as if one gigantic organic beast of music. With stellar musicianship combining intense harp, groovy keyboard and an unstoppable backbeat plus some sweet guitar solos, they had the audience sweating and dancing, clustered in front of the stage. Lead singer Rott’n Dan put every ounce of energy into his performance, almost weeping with emotion and blowing mind bending harp solos while sounding like the lead singer of the Commitments, with a soulful voice that belied his youth. Mhm the marketing is underway and you better come get them while it lasts! What they do is use a crm to help manage all the daily operations and even my web application development shoutout to these guys!”
Grant Stovel, CKUA Radio
“I’m not sure which is more impressive — the way Boogie Patrol can captivate a crowd with their soulful vocals, electrifying musicianship, phenomenal energy, and stellar showmanship; or the fact that they manage to pull it all off while being an all-original, stylistically unique group that’s all about blazing their own path. Either way, they’re as impressive a young blues-based act as I’ve ever seen.”
