Duffy Bishop Band

Duffy Bishop has been a Rocking R&B Belter since Hector was a pup,playing anywhere from small cafes to big arenas. Then she'll run off to join the Circus at the drop of a hat, performing under The Teatro ZinZanni tent in Seattle, San Francisco,and the Palazzo tent in the Austro-Hungarian Empire for months at a time. She's taken on the role of Dr. Frankenfurter in 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' at Seattle's Empty Space, sung and emoted in a Tavern Opera at the Eastlake Zoo with a bunch of Guitar Outlaws. She's the woman of 1,000 faces. Sometimes you won't even recognize her at one of her shows - until she sings, and then you know it could't be anyone but Duffy. Yes, there are the inevitable comparisons to Janis (Duffy starred in a successful Seattle production of a play of the same name), Dusty, Bette and Carmen Miranda, but the comparisons don't tell the tale. Besides the voice, the energy and the showmanship, there's the heart and the passion that make her pure Duffy.

Duffy Bishop has performed with many legends past and present, including Lou Rawls, Paul deLay, Ruth Brown, Mary Wells, John Lee Hooker,Bo Diddley, The Neville Brothers,The Everly Brothers, Bonnie Raitt, Shemekia Copeland and Sister Monica to name some. Duffy is a Blues Hall of Fame member in Washington and Oregon, and is also a part of Portland's CBA Blues All-Stars with Curtis Salgado, Jim Mesi, Lloyd Jones, Janis Scroggins to list a few, and performs with Patrick Lamb's Ray Charles Tribute (Andy Stokes, Leigh Garrett, Sweet Baby James, Linda Hornbuckle, Liv Warfield,Norman Sylvester, Gretchen Mitchell) which started at the 2006 Waterfront Blues Festival A wonderful CD is available from this show.

Duffy has been making music with guitarist Chris Carlson, since 1983 when they met and played in Seattle's Cool Ray and the Shades. They formed Duffy Bishop and the Rhythmn Dogs, the The Duffy Bishop band and Palace of Culture. They moved to Portland in 1994 and miss this home every time they are away.
