NEW- Duke's News

Hello folks, It’s been a busy year, touring and doing shows promoting our latest album “They Called it Rhythm and Blues” and finally getting back to work!

I would like to let you know about an extra act I will be presenting soon besides the Duke Robillard Band, which will continue to gig as usual.

I have worked up a show that is guitar oriented with bassist Marty Ballou and drummer Mark Teixeira and myself that will go through my influences from my early days as a self-taught guitarist to my years of backing up, recording and playing with many of the blues giants that are no longer with us.

From Muddy Waters, Big Joe Turner and many, many more to being a member of the Fabulous Thunderbirds, touring with Tom Waits, recording with Bob Dylan on his several Grammy winning album "Time Out of Mind" and touring with him also.

Examples of many styles and techniques I use and have developed and been known for.

There will be a question, and answer period and I will tell stories about shows and recordings with several major blues artists.

The show is designed to be fun, musical, informative and interesting and I think you will enjoy it. I can’t wait to get out there and play for you, talk with you and have a real positive personal experience with you all.

Hope to see you soon at an intimate venue near you!

All the best, Duke Robillard
