Drayton & The Dreamboats are an Asheville, North Carolina-based band who specialize in vocal dream jazz.

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.
