Drayton & The Dreamboats are an Asheville, North Carolina-based band who specialize in vocal dream jazz. Featuring vocalist and violinist Drayton Aldridge, electric guitarist Tim Doyle, bassist Craig Sandberg, and drummer Mattick Frick, the group plays an irresistible mix of hot swing, cool ballads, and original pop tunes. Rooted in the vocal jazz tradition of Nat King Cole and Chet Baker, the group’s sincere delivery breathes new life into old standards and adds a timeless quality to their own original tunes. Drayton & The Dreamboats bridge the gap between old and new, playing vintage songs with enough pop sensibility, playfulness, and modern flair to draw in a new generation of listeners. Their unique style combines the charm and sophistication of jazz with the laid-back sincerity of folk music and the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll.
Join Drayton & The Dreamboats for our After-Nooner Series on the Amphitheater Stage from 2pm to 5pm.
