Duke Robillard Live


The CSBS (Chatham-Kent) is proud to announce our next show, Friday December 2nd, featuring a true Blues Legend, Duke Robillard.
What do Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Jay McShann, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, John Hammond, the late Jimmy Witherspoon, Dr. John, Maria Muldaur, Roomful of Blues, and the Canadian band The Rockin’ Highliners all have in common?
Answer: Duke Robillard
Guitarist. Bandleader. Songwriter. Singer. Producer. Session musician. And a one-man cheering section for the blues, in all its forms and permutations. And every one of those names has shared recording studio space or stage time with a man who is a legend in the blues community.
The Blues Music Awards (formerly W.C.Handy Awards) have named Duke Robillard "Best Blues Guitarist" four years out of five (2000,2001,2003,2004) making him the second most honored guitarist for that award! He was also nominated in that category in 2005, 2007 and again in 2008.
I suggest you get your tickets early for this show. Our December shows are always a sell out, and the demand for Duke Robillard tickets is already strong. You really don't want to miss this show!!! Tickets are available at Aug's Video in Blenheim and Chatham, at the KBD Club in Chatham, and at Kakoon Spa in Ridgetown. Or call Bob at 519-676-8977 to reserve tickets and tables. Be sure to check Duke out on youtube and atwww.dukerobillard.com
Hope to see you at the show, Bob Christmas
