CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Chris Duarte starts 2017 in Florida!

The Chris Duarte Group, Austin, Texas

The Chris Duarte Group heads to South Central Florida to kick off 2017 with a five-show run including the opening night headliner for the Suncoast Blues Festival at the Sarasota Fairgrounds!  Other shows will be hosted by Ray Lewis at the Mudville Music Room in Jacksonville, a return to The Alley in Sanford, a stop at Boston’s on the Beach in Delray Beach, and finishing at The Barrel Room in Fort Myers.
The Chris Duarte Group had a banner year in 2016, highlighted by Chris Duarte being inducted into the Canadian Blues Hall of Fame while touring in Windsor, spending two weeks in the Sturgis, South Dakota area up to and during Bike Week and introducing his power-trio style of Blues to new fans at several new stops across our great Nation.
Another highlight was a three-show sell-out in Joplin, Missouri – such a success that the Coda Concert House moved to a larger venue to accommodate guests who traveled from all across the country to witness the inaugural Jimi Hendrix Birthday tribute concert and two additional concerts – the final night was a very rare Jazz-Blues Improv show with special guests Jesse Aycock & Paul Benjaman.

Chris Duarte finished 2016 in his hometown of Austin, Texas playing at his standing Monday night gigs at The One2One, and a dual headline concert with Beth Lee and the Breakups at The Townsend.
