Boogie is a repetitive, swung note or shuffle rhythm, "groove" or pattern used in blues which was originally played on the piano in boogie-woogie music. The characteristic rhythm and feel of the boogie was then adapted to guitar, double bass, and other instruments. The earliest recorded boogie-woogie song was in 1916. By the 1930s, Swing bands such as Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, and Louis Jordan all had boogie hits. By the 1950s, boogie became incorporated into the emerging rockabilly and rock and roll styles. In the late 1980s and the early 1990s country bands released country boogies. Today, the term "boogie" usually refers to dancing to pop, disco, or rock music.

Famous quotes containing the word boogie:

    I am a cowboy in the boat of Ra. Lord of the lash,
    the Loup Garou Kid. Half breed son of Pisces and
    Aquarius. I hold the souls of men in my pot. I do
    the dirty boogie with scorpions. I make the bulls
    keep still and was the first swinger to grape the taste.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)
