the band

“Amazing multi-instrumentalist, Rob Duquette on percussion, guitar, vocals and whatever else he can fit in the van.”

- Jonathan Edwards

Rob Duquette is multi -instrumentalist/singer/songwriter/composer and founder and leader of the band duquette. He 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 is currently traveling the country on a solo tour sharing music from his latest album “Trust the Night”.
