Our Story

The Boogie Katz were formed in February of 2024 with 5 talented musicians from diverse musical backgrounds.  Over the past few months we have worked hard to perfect our craft which includes a variety of musical genres and even a few original songs.  We look forward to playing a block party early July and The Garrison Night Market in September. Upcoming performances will be updated here on the website as they become booked.

Thank you for visiting our site and expressing an interest in the Boogie Katz of Fredericton, NB Canada.

Don holds an Honour's Bachelor of Musical Arts Degree as well as a Bachelor of Education Degree from the Universities of Western Ontario & Windsor, respectively. 

 

Don has devoted 30+ years to educating students in the discipline of Music, English, and Special Education.  Don worked tirelessly to provide opportunities for his students to achieve excellence while performing in international & local music festivals, attend musicals and live performances abroad, as well as providing creative composition and recording venues. During this time, Don's  passion for music shifted to arranging choral and Band music for his students to perform.  

 

Over the years, Don performed in various Musical ensembles mostly in the Greater Toronto Area.  In addition, Don focused his attention to composition and songwriting while working closely with TAXI (a successful A&R music company) in Los Angeles.

Don retired from teaching in Ontario in 2021 at which time he relocated to Fredericton NB where he now continues to work with students at the high school level, compose and perform professionally. 

Don formed the "Boogie Katz" in March of 2024.
