DebbieDancy

Cool quartet or dynamic duo performs Classic Pop, R&B, and Jazz Standards from decades past, along with a sprinkling of current hits. The energetic and photogenic Debbie Goodman is paired with veteran Tony Dancy in this charismatic combo. Groovin' rhythm section provided by Lionel "Mustafa" Freeman and Dave Grundy.

This group is hip enough for the nouveau lounge lizards, yet they make a "happening" for the Baby Boomers.

Tony says, "We are an experienced, talented pro group with an eclectic repertoire, we aim to provide a fun, playful, danceable and memorable night for your guests."

The Bios...

Tony

Tony Dancy, the Dancy of DebbieDancy is the guitarist, keyboardist and music director.

Tony has shared the stage with acts from Ambrosia and El Chicano to Mickey Dolenz and Edgar Winter. He has enjoyed stints as a studio session guy, plus recorded with such divergent artists as Diane Reeves and Jim Photoglo, among many others. Diverse tastes in music, he has toured around the US with an Elvis act, his super bad 70's band Quiffy, and a lounge single/duo act.

Singer, songwriter, and vocal arranger, success came early at age 16 with his Milwaukee band Tony's Tygers. He wrote and recorded with the band a romantic tune, "Little by Little" (A&M Records), which became a hugely popular regional hit.

At 21 he moved to Hollywood, and quickly scored a job as staff songwriter for Wednesday's Child Productions. He wrote songs and sang back-up vocals for the TV shows, "The Brady Bunch" and "The Flintstones".

Avid world traveler, Tony lived in Hong Kong for a year while he performed with the show band "Sixtiesmania" - as well as having backpacked around the world twice…so far.

Recent ventures have found him in the studio. Tony has four CDs of original tunes out now, the latest is an album of his unique vision of "smooth jazz", produced by Al Jarreau's music director, Joe Turano.

Debbie

Singer-songwriter Debbie Goodman went from rocking the United State's famous "music row" in Nashville, to touring the entire East coast fronting her rock band.

When it comes to popular music she has done it all - vocal jazz ensembles, classical vocal groups, plus jazz, blues, rock, and country bands from Oklahoma - where she was born and raised -  to Tennessee, and now California.

Debbie rocked on out from the Nashville scene to sunny Los Angeles in 2010 where she gigged on the Sunset Strip and all around town with her band. She has written and recorded some excellent heartache to heartbreak tunes reminiscent of artists like Bonnie Raitt and Melissa Etheridge.

In 2013 she joined forces with Tony to create DebbieDancy.  No matter the style, this strong and feisty female stirs you up with sultry vocals and amazing sound.

Dave

Talented 5-string bassist, Dave Grundy's versatility shines when he sings lead and harmony. A veteran musician he has played literally all over the world, from the USA, Canada, and the Caribbean, to the Far East, and Europe.

Variety is the spice of life! Dave has played everything from Country to Hard Rock, and all that's in between - and he has loved every diverse minute of it.

Raised in Pennsylvania, by age 21 Dave was off playing in the hottest clubs from Fort Lauderdale to Chicago, landing for a while in one of the best Hard Rock bands in Seattle. Not to stop his feet from roaming, he moved on to gig with the Country scene in Nashville for many years.

Dave developed a super successful show band that became a staple of high end clubs in Nashville, which led to many stints in Europe. He toured with the funky horn band "Tension" from Philadelphia, in the Far East as a GS12 Entertainer for the DOD, and has many Cruise Ship gigs under his belt.

Most recently Dave displayed his funky chops with a Motown tribute band based in the Naples/Fort Myers FL area. And has gigged with the Shindigs, a Beach Boys tribute, singing the heck out of the Brian Wilson parts.

Mustafa

Lionel "Mustafa" Freeman has been playing the drums since he was 10 years old, getting his start performing in the Baptist church of the small bayou town of Amite, Louisiana.

Early on he knew bigger things awaited him and headed off to Los Angeles, where his solid grooves and funky moves quickly brought him to the attention of the L.A. music scene.

It wasn't long before he was providing the beat for such luminaries as Billy Preston, The Temptations, The Drifters, The Platters, The Marvelettes, and legendary blues guitarist Lowell Fulson.

Mustafa is an experienced professional who has traveled and performed throughout the world in such widely disparate destinations as Dubai, Senegal, Germany, Aruba and Hawaii, and now, with DebbieDancy, his journey continues.
