Duke Robillard

Friday, November 10, 2023 8pm

On June 23, M.C. Records will be releasing Six Strings of Steel by guitar master Duke Robillard. The record represents all his influences including swing, blues, and rock. You’ll hear Link Wray’s “Rumble”, Dylan’s “Watching The River Flow”, Fats Domino’s “I’m Going To Be A Wheel Someday,” and of course several Duke originals. Six Strings of Steel is the second record Duke has recorded with M.C. Records. The first was 2017’s Duke Robillard and His Dame’s of Rhythm.


Duke is joined by his long-time band mates Mark Teixeira, Bruce Bears, Marty Ballou, and Doug James that helped him create an infectious sound and grooves here, and the most recent band member, vocalist Chris Cote belts out the tunes, no matter what the genre, with style and power. A special guest on the record is Katie Shore of Asleep at The Wheel on Fiddle.

Duke Robillard talks about Six Strings of Steel.
I am really excited about the release of "Six Strings of Steel" on M.C. Records. It's a look back at many guitar and song styles that have been important to me along my journey in this world of ever-changing tastes and sounds.

"Robillard is a soloist of stunning force and originality." New York Times

Few players can move stylistically from Texas to Kansas City to Chicago's West Side, but Robillard makes it seem easy."- Guitar Player

Duke has carved out one of the Blues' most illustrious legacies. He founded Roomful Of Blues with pianist Al Copley in 1967. He replaced Jimmie Vaughan in The Fabulous Thunderbirds in 1990. He recorded on Dylan’s “Time Out Of Mind” and later toured with him. He also has toured with Tom Waits and Robert Gordon. Duke's prolificity has included producing albums by Joe Louis Walker, Jimmy Witherspoon, Jay McShann, and Otis Clay. Another highlight of Duke’s is recording two collaborations with Herb Ellis.

Duke's resume is decorated with Grammy nominations, Handy Awards and Blues Music Awards, and other honors for his artistry, recordings, and productions within the United States and internationally.
