Duke Robillard Band

February 25 @ 7:30 pm

$10.00 – $45.00

“Since Robillard helped found Roomful of Blues in the 1960s, he has been the leading torch-bearer for this vibrant music that eventually morphed into rock-and-roll. The guitar master and his usual ace band provide the musical base here, and they come out swinging…” says ROCK & BLUES MUSE (2021 Album Review of ‘They Called it Rhythm & Blues’). “Call it old school, vintage, throw-back or any other term you choose but there’s no denying that Robillard and his bandmates know this music backwards and forwards. Just let it rip, turn it up, and turn yourself loose,” raves GLIDE MAGAZINE (2020 Album Review Review of ‘Blues Bash’).

2x-GRAMMY® Award Nominee, 6x-Blues Music Award-Winner, 22x-Blues Music Award Nominee & Iconic Blues Guitarist and Singer DUKE ROBILLARD returns to Jimmy's with his Acclaimed Band. Robillard is a 4x-"Blues Guitarist of the Year" Award-Winner at the Blues Music Awards, and the NEW YORK TIMES raves, "Robillard is a soloist of stunning force and originality." Duke has carved out one of blues' most illustrious legacies, and will render any song with mastery, power, nuance and an unerring grasp of its essence. After showing an early affinity for music and guitar, he founded Roomful Of Blues with pianist Al Copley in Westerly, R.I., in 1967. By the time Duke left Roomful after a dozen years, he was firmly established in the upper echelon of contemporary blues guitarists. Duke replaced Jimmie Vaughan with The Fabulous Thunderbirds in 1990. "Robillard's ability to play across the spectrum of blues is legendary," raves GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE. "One of the great players," stated B.B. KING.
