Some of the best blues in America today isn't coming out of Chicago or the Deep South -- it's coming from New York City's Times Square where the B.B. King Blues Club All-Stars featuring the Harlem Blues Project jam weekly at Lucille's with special guests. Several soulful and dynamic veteran vocalist-musicians make up the Harlem Blues Project: Jerry Dugger, Junior Mack and Barry Harrison. Singer and bassist Jerry Dugger is a member of the New York Blues Hall of Fame, who's shared the stage with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Copeland, James Cotton and more. Guitarist Junior Mack has played with greats like the Allman Brothers Band, Derek Trucks, Robert Randolph, Dickey Betts and Honeyboy Edwards and drummer Barry Harrison, a long-time band member for Johnny Copeland and Shemekia Copeland, rounds out one of the hottest blues outfits ever assembled. They're joined by a rotating cast of the finest musicians in New York City and beyond. Learn More

What do Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Jay McShann, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, John Hammond, Jimmy Witherspoon, Dr. John, Maria Muldaur, Roomful of Blues, and The Rockin’ Highliners all have in common? The answer: Duke Robillard. Guitarist, leader, songwriter, singer, producer, session musician, and a one-man cheering section for the blues in all its forms and permutations, Robillard is a true legend in the blues community. A Grammy nominee and four-time recipient of the Best Blues Guitarist award from the Blues Music Awards (formerly the W.C. Handy Awards), he has won accolades from critics and fellow musicians alike. B.B. King himself called him “one of the great players,” and The Houston Post labeled him “one of God’s guitarists.”
None of this praise goes to Robillard’s head, however. He’s still on the road, playing as many as 250 dates a year, and he’s still proving, night after night, that his true talent is bringing people out to hear the music, appreciate the show, and dance to the blues. Although he’s perhaps best known for founding Roomful of Blues with Al Copley in the late ’60s, he has also played with The Fabulous Thunderbirds, shared studio time with Bob Dylan, Ruth Brown, Johnny Adams, John Hammond, Pinetop Perkins, Ronnie Earl, and others, and led his own prolific solo career with his band. A musician in command of a full range of talents, he is a complete artist who, over 40 years into his career, is at the height of his creative powers. His latest recording, Low Down and Tore Up, came out in 2011.
