On Friday, November 11th, BLUE MOON MARQUEE will be performing for our dancing enjoyment at the Gorge Hall.
"Blue Moon Marquee is a Canadian "Gypsy Blues" band that stem from the dusty Hoodoo’s of the Alberta Rocky Mountain Badlands. A.W. Cardinal (vocals, guitar, harmonica.) and Jasmine Colette (vocals, bass, drums.) primarily write and perform original compositions influenced by artists such as Lonnie Johnson, Charley Patton, Bill Jennings and Django Reinhardt.
They have perfected a live style of playing, a duo that sounds like a full band. Jasmine Colette (the rhythm section) not only sings with an alluring and elegant voice and masters the stand up bass, but also keeps the swing with her feet by playing a kick drum with one foot, a snare and high hat with the other. A.W. is soft spoken and warm natured, with a singing voice as thick and as black as coal smoke that barrels out like a Raging bull. Blue Moon Marquee’s chemistry transcends the music itself and the way Colette’s angelic tones lift Wesley’s beaten down Bukowski–esque mystique is something that will surely stay in your head for a while and make a lasting impression."
