Blue Moon Marquee w/ Darcy Phillips

Jazz clubs and crowded bar rooms. Low light and blue smoke. Sexy and suave…old delta blues, swing, jazz, and ragtime. A night to remember.

“Gypsy Blues plucks the danger from a Tom Waits melody, dances it a little further over the line with dark magic, teases the rhythms & and raises a toast to back alley Jazz” – The Alternate Route

“Whiskey soaked Cab Calloway” – Blues Matters UK

“The spirits of Memphis Minnie, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Patton, Howlin’ Wolf, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Bukka White and many others haunt the musical offerings of Blue Moon Marquee.” – BC Musician

Blue Moon Marquee is a Gypsy Blues band born of the wild rose foothills of Alberta, Canada. They currently make their home in an island shack on the coast of the Salish Sea in British Columbia. A.W. Cardinal (vocals/guitar) and Jasmine Colette (vocals/ bass/drums) write and perform original compositions. Artists such as Howlin’ Wolf, Memphis Minnie, and Django Reinhardt are deeply infused in the soul of their music.

With passionate performances and smouldering onstage chemistry as their trademark, they deliver an infectious mix of early blues, jazz, country, and popular songs. Colette commands the upright bass and brings the swing with her feet on drums all while singing harmonies. Cardinal’s distinctive thick and smoky vocals barrel out like a raging bull while his guitar crackles with the swinging energy of jazz-tinged blues.

The June Bugs

Imagine if Neil Young and Janis Joplin had three love children, and those children grew up to like folk rock and hip hop. The June Bugs combine high-energy pop and rock with Pacific Northwest folksy goodness to create a genre-bending sound you can kick up your heels to.

The June Bugs originated on the Vancouver, BC circuit before moving back home to Portland, OR. There, guitarist Barrett picked up drummer Kyle Owen and bassist Nathaniel Daniel, to round out the dynamic trio. Covering everything from Tom Petty to TLC to Lorde, the eclectic taste of the trio ranges from turn-of-the-century Americana to modern Hip Hop, with a strong emphasis on vocal harmony.

Their original tunes have a dreamy, sweet quality reminiscent of Neil Young and Iron & Wine, peppered with fiery banjo lines. There is something for everyone here.

Outlaw Country w/ David James & Big River

A Tribute to Johnny Cash & Waylon Jennings

David James and Big River are often described as one of the most authentic Outlaw Country tribute shows touring today. Thousands of fans agree with those reviews, as they routinely sell out shows in venues large and small across Canada and the U.S.

From the way James holds his guitar to the way he talks to his audience, the legendary musicians live again when James steps to the mike and says, “Hello – I’m almost Johnny Cash,” or plays that classic leather bound Telecaster guitar like Waylon.

The professionalism on and off the stage is a testament to the memory of Cash and Waylon that fans have come to expect from David James and Big River.

The extensive catalogue of songs from Cash like Folsom Prison, Boy named Sue, and Ring of Fire, and Waylons mega-hits like Luckenback Texas, Good Hearted Woman, and Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys, attracts audiences young and old alike to relive the music of these great country icons.

“Its not only about the voice,” James said. “It’s about living and breathing the men – their postures, their mannerisms, their moves and quirks. I want our audiences to go home feeling like they observed the men themselves.”
