O'Regan was also hand-picked by a friend to be a back-up dancer for the aforementioned theatrical icon Peaches at a hometown show in Toronto late last years.
"It was wild," O'Regan shares. "It's awesome to see someone who's been doing it for a while who can put on a really big show -- that definitely sets the bar for what I want to do in the future."
For the time being, O'Regan is content to be a solo act, but hopes to take a cue from Peaches and have his own back-up dancers one day. "That would be the next step," he says. "I'd much rather have a back-up dancer than a bass player."
Working with a choreographer for his live performances, O'Regan says that up until this point, his dancing live has been mostly free-form, adding that "some nights it's great, and other nights...the spirit is always there, but the tightness is something I want to work on."
"I want to be able to go the club and totally bust it out and really, really turn some heads."
