Bluesman Mark DuFresne has a long list of accolades. The Washington Blues Society has awarded him the title of “best vocalist, songwriter and harmonica player” more than any other artist to date. Mark spent four and a half years as the lead vocalist and front man for the Grammy-nominated band Roomful of Blues. During that tenure, the New England Blues Society named Mark the Best Blues Vocalist. Mark returned to the Northwest in 2006 and has been working steadily throughout the region. Mark has also performed abroad and most recently toured Europe with some of Italy’s most well-respected musicians: Maurizia Pugno, Alberto Massico and Gio Rossi. In addition to his outstanding vocal chops, Mark’s command of the harmonica is equally high octane. He is known for his innovation and fire. In the words of Blue Review Magazine, “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.” We are always happy to welcome Mark back to the Bake’s Place stage.
