Blue Moon Marquee
A special send off show! Blue Moon Marquee are heading out for a 7 week tour of Australia and then back to Europe!
Blue Moon Marquee writes and performs original compositions influenced by anything that swings, jumps or grooves.
Currently, they are up for 4 Maple Blues Awards – Entertainer of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Producer of the Year, Acoustic Act of the Year and will perform live at the awards in Toronto. Their new album ‘Scream, Holler & Howl’ hit #1 on the charts and was shortlisted for a Grammy nomination. They are also nominated for a Blues Music Award in the USA for Emerging Act of the Year and will be heading down to Memphis for the award ceremony in May.
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.
One of the most incredible shows to grace our stage, definitely an evening not to be missed!
