Quotes & Highlights

“DuFresne is as distinctive as a vocalist as he is a fiery player; rather than recycling old riffs, his original compositions are tuneful, melodic and grooveworthy…”  —_Blues Review Magazine _

Description

Mark DuFresne has received more awards from the Washington Blues Society for Best Vocalist, Songwriter and Harmonica than any other artist.

His three CDs of all-original music — Out of That Bed, Have Another Round and There’s a Song In There — have all received critical acclaim.

In 2002, Mark joined the band Roomful of Blues as lead vocalist. While in that role the band received a Grammy nomination for “That’s Right.” The band also won the W.C. Handy award for Best Band in 2004. After a very successful four years with the band, he returned home to the Pacific Northwest in 2006.

Recently Mark had the pleasure of touring in Europe with Italy’s finest musicians, including Maurizio Pugno, Alberto Marsico, and Gio Rossi.
