A Little More Drums

Blue Moon Marquee On Corby's Orbit

Thoroughly rinsed in jazz and blues, Blue Moon Marquee will be hanging out some fresh tunes on the Orbital clothesline at around 6:00 this Friday. With romping stomps abounding and a Gypsy Blue mystique, this salubrious Alberta  duo promises the Sweet, the Lowdown, and a stop at Annette Studio later that evening, as part of their Lonesome Ghosts tour.
