The Buckleys Cover "Boogie Woogie Santa Claus"

While every year there are new versions of "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," I can't even think of the last time I heard "Boogie Woogie Santa Claus" let alone a new cover of the song. The Buckleys have given us a new version of the semi-forgotten Christmas favorite. The Australian band have updated the version slightly. It doesn't sound quite like 2021, but it also doesn't sound like a 1940's swing song like the original was. This new version is a little more funk and country, but with enough 1940's swing to keep it true to the original. Like any good Christmas song, this one is a ton of fun.

Sarah Buckley says of their version of the Christmas classic:

"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!”
