Duke Robillard

EP 202 | Duke Robillard



Duke Robillard.
He’s blues royalty. Name and all.
With his 37th album, They called it Rhythm and Blues on Stony Plain Records he’s come full circle back to where his heart lives.
Jump Blues.

It’s the uplifting jazz, blues, And gospel music that got people through the end of WW2 and handed off to Bill Haley, Elvis, and the Rock era in the mid-50s.
77 years later it’s truly needed for the end of a devastating pandemic.
People need spirits lifted and music that can be part of the healing.
And here comes The Duke Robillard Band breathing life into Jump Blues 2022.
Duke is a storyteller.

Have a listen. Great tracks from the album included.

He may have lost count but Duke “thinks” it’s his 37th album.

Judging from the reaction to They Called it Rhythm and Blues it may be his biggest hit yet.

Right after the dark years of WW2 The World needed a spiritual lift. For 10 short years, It took the shape and sound of Jump Blues. It lead directly into mid-50s rock and roll. Spirits were lifted.
77 years later along comes to The Duke Robillard Band bringing joyous Jump Blues, again to lift spirits following two years of the pandemic.
For Duke – this music is exactly where he lives. Loves it, collects it, and brings the Joy of it.
Saturday night we’re going to Jump,  People!
