Mark Dufresne 2.jpg

This current version of the Mark Dufresne Band has been wowing audiences since reforming in 2016 with founding guitarist Billy Stapleton. Grammy nominated Mark Dufresne is at the helm with his 3 octave tenor voice completely intact and his championship harmonica playing at full force. A dynamic singer and showman, Dufresne makes his original rhythm and blues songs and instrumentals shine with this talented quartet.

Veteran Guitarist and recent WA Blues Hall of Fame inductee,Billy Stapleton is kept busy with rhythm, lead and slide guitar duties and does not disappoint.

On upright and electric bass the rock solid Guy Quintino is the perfect bottom to this tight rhythm section. And on drums, the ever effervescent David Hudson shows off a lifetime’s collection of grooves and chops.

Not your typical Blues Band, this is a “show band” that plays the material like a Chicago Blues Revue Band. Truly one of the best rhythm and blues outfits on the West Coast.
