Knox Presents: Blue Moon Marquee ft. Duke Robillard

July14
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Scream, Holler & Howl, their upcoming release is inspired by artists with an Indigenous lineage - like Charlie Patton, Link Ray, T-Bone Walker, Mildred Bailey and others - who have connected their heritage with the Jazz, Blues and Swing tradition. Blue Moon Marquee has created their own personal voice within this genre. Robillard co-produced the album which releases in September 2022.

“To say A.W. and Jasmine are old souls is an understatement to say the least! They are poised for worldwide recognition in an amazing genre-bending ride through American blues and folk.”

– Duke Robillard

Blue Moon Marquee is a swingin’ blues duo/band currently living on the coast of the Salish Sea. Vocalist/guitarist A.W. Cardinal and vocalist/bassist/drummer Jasmine Colette perform original compositions influenced by anything that swings, jumps or grooves. Colette, the rhythm section, commands the upright bass, and brings the swing with her feet on the kick drum, snare, and high hat, all while singing harmonies. Cardinal performs electrifying jazz-tinged blues guitar complimented by distinctive, smoky vocals.

This special performance will feature Grammy-nominated jazz/blues guitarist Duke Robillard, who was praised by B.B. King as “one of the great players,” has previously collaborated with Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Herb Ellis, and more. Robillard is a former guitarist for Fabulous Thunderbirds and founder of the iconic Roomful of Blues.
