_____BLUE MOON MARQUEE_____
They are poised for worldwide recognition in a brilliant and unique genre-bending ride through American blues and folk, Gypsy jazz, Native American themes, jump blues, swing and more. - Duke Robillard (Roomful of Blues, Fabulous Thunderbirds), Award-winning guitar player and producer.
Blue Moon Marquee writes and performs original compositions influenced by anything that swings, jumps or grooves. A.W. Cardinal (vocals/guitar) and Jasmine Colette a.k.a. Badlands Jass (vocals/bass/drums) have played for a vast gamut of crowds at jazz clubs, Lindy Hop dance halls, folk venues, blues haunts, hospitals, prisons, markets, motorcycle joints, dive bars and prestigious festival stages.
Colette not only commands the upright bass but also brings the rhythm with her feet on a custom foot drum kit, all while singing in her signature honey-dipped tone. Cardinal’s distinctive and soulful vocals barrel out like a raging bull while his guitar crackles with the swinging energy of jazz-tinged blues.
The result of 9 years of rigorous touring, crisscrossing Europe and North America, is a distinct energy and style from this acclaimed duo. Carving a path through blues, jazz, jump jive, folk, country, swing, and Indigenous soul with an authentic spirit, their sound does not idle easily in one certain category. It stomps and struts through the wilds, conjuring a blend where Howlin’ Wolf tangos with Django, Earnest Tubb shoots firecrackers with Cab Calloway, and Memphis Minnie throws dice with Screamin’ Jay Hawkins.
Their gift is bringing all these elements together without anything sounding out of step. They collect the roots and smoothly braid them with lyrics that often touch on the underbelly of society, woven with elements of Indigenous storytelling and poetic cadence.
"Blue Moon Marquee has its own completely original style. Modern Blues doesn't really get any better than this. This is a tremendous sound by a hugely talented duo” says American Roots UK.
Multi-instrumentalist, sideman, songwriter, hammer swinging grandpa...etc... currently playing with TremblersofSevens, Fans&motorsupplyco and in Puente Theatre's production "Fado". Toured in bands with Jeremy Fisher and Leeroy Stagger, fiddler Ivonne Hernandez and Fado singer Sara Marrerios. Dan has lived, traveled and to say he has ended up in a few situations worthy of a song is not an exaggeration. An accomplished guitarist, storyteller and entertainer. Take one part music nerd, one part misfit ... shake and serve over ice.

We are happy to announce that we're back to hosting live music on our stage!!
With the help of FACTOR and Creative BC from Sept 17th we'll be blessed to have some beautiful artists cross our stage again. Shows are Friday and Saturday evenings. Tickets can be purchased online in advance through the Eventbrite link on the Facebook event page. If online ticket purchases don't sell the show out there will be tickets available at the door.
It's at your discretion to wear a mask or not inside. Dancing is a thing again! It can feel cosy in here with a full house and we understand apprehensions as things open back up. We're all navigating this differently as we move back to some sort of semblance of normalcy, we'll strive to accommodate all in the enjoyment of musical performance.
Thanks for you understanding and support, we can't wait to see y'all!!
