blue moon marquee
“dark magic, teases the rhythms & raises a toast to back alley Jazz” – Canadian Music
Blue Moon Marquee perform their original compositions influenced by anything that swings, jumps or grooves. A.W. Cardinal, a Metis of Cree heritage (vocals, guitar) and Jasmine Colette, a.k.a. Badlands Jass, (vocals, bass, drums) have played everywhere from jazz clubs to prisons. Carving a path through blues, jazz, jump jive, folk, country, swing, and Indigenous soul, their sound does not idle easily in one certain category. It stomps and struts through the wilds, conjuring a blend where Howlin’ Wolf tangos with Django, Ernest Tubb shoots firecrackers with Cab Calloway, and Memphis Minnie throws dice with Screamin’ Jay Hawkins.
