Blue Moon Marquee currently makes their home in an island shack on the coast of the Salish Sea in British Columbia. A.W. Cardinal and Jasmine Colette (a.k.a. “Badlands Jass”) write and perform original compositions influenced by early blues, swing, jazz and ragtime including artists such as Lonnie Johnson, Howlin’ Wolf, Memphis Minnie, and Django Reinhardt. Blue Moon Marquee’s passionate performances and smoldering onstage chemistry is their trademark. It’s something that enthralls audiences from back-room bars to festival stages, to velvet-seated theatres. Jasmine Colette, the rhythm section, not only commands the upright bass but also brings the swing with her feet playing drums all while singing harmonies. A.W. Cardinal’s distinctive thick and smoky vocals barrel out like a raging bull. His guitar crackles with the swinging energy of jazz-tinged blues. Recent nominations include Blues Artist of the Year, 2021 Western Canadian Music Awards; Indigenous Songwriter of the Year, 2021 Canadian Folk Music Awards; Indigenous Artist of the Year, 2018 WCMA; New Artist of the Year, 2013s 6 Maple Blues Awards (2016). Known for their authenticity, this versatile act presents as duo, trio or quartet.
