04/28 Sat 8:30 ~ DUKE ROBILLARD Blues Band ~ $25 +$2 processing

What do Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, John Hammond, Dr. John, Maria Muldaur, Roomful of Blues, and the Canadian band The Rockin' Highliners all have in common?: Duke Robillard -- as a guitarist, bandleader, songwriter, singer, producer, session musician and a one-man cheering section for the blues, in all its forms and permutations. Every one of those names has shared recording studio space or stage time with this man who is a legend in the blues community.

The Blues Music Awards (formerly W.C.Handy Awards) named Duke Robillard "Best Blues Guitarist" four years out of five (2000, 2001, 2003, 2004), making him the second most honored guitarist for that award! He was also nominated in that category in 2005, 2007 and 2008. In 2007, Duke also received a Grammy nomination for his "Guitar Groove-a-rama" CD. Other awards over the last decade include three Canadian Maple Blues Awards for Best International Blues Artist, the Blues Foundation's Producer Of The Year award in 2004, the French Blues Association's Album of the Year award in 2002 and Guitarist Of The Year awards in 1999 and 2002.

BB King himself has called Duke "One of the great players." The Houston Post called him "one of God's guitarists" and the New York Times says "Robillard is a soloist of stunning force and originality."

None of that goes to Robillard's head. He's still on the road, still playing as many as 250 dates a year. And, still proving night after night that his true talent is bringing people out to hear the music, appreciate the show and dance to the blues.
