An intimate experience of Music and Dance, featuring Rob Duquette and his original music with Amanda Duquette and her modern/lyrical/interpretive dance accompaniment.
Duquette has made his career since the mid-1990s as a well respected and in-demand sideman, most notably as a member of Jonathan Edwards touring band. He has also regularly played with other notables like Jack Sonni (Dire Straits) and the legendary composer David Amram over the past 15 years. He gained national attention as part of the jazz-folk-pop group Cactus Highway in the early 2000s, whom the Boston Herald called “a duo of true sophistication.”
Rob can be found behind a drumset, on piano, guitar, and xylophone with ease. On his newest album, he plays almost all of the instruments on the tracks himself. The new album “Stay with me” features raw emotional tracks "You Be the Tree" and "It's Ok" and sultry rockers like “Movin' On" and “Tryin' Hard” and more.
