Colin Dussault

Plays Big River Harp

Colin Dussault has been singing, playing harmonica and leading his own band since May 1989. In that time he has had many of Cleveland's finest musicians pass through his ranks. This lineup of his band, Colin Dussault's Blues Project, is the culmination of many years of gigging and is in his opinion one of the best he has ever had the pleasure of sharing the stage with. Colin's biggest influences range from Frank Zappa and Tenacious D, to Paul Butterfield, Leonard Nimoy ("Proud Mary") and William Shatner ("Mr. Tambourine Man" "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds"). Colin Enjoys listening to National Public Radios' "Prairie Home Companion" on nights off when he and his band are doubled booked by careless club owners. He also enjoys reciting complete vocal passages from Frank Zappa albums (particularly Frank Zappa & the Mothers "Live at the Fillmore East 1971"-with Flo & Eddie" to crowds of unsuspecting conservatives! Mud Sh Sh Shark! Colin's favorite quotes from Fred are" What in the Army?" and "Homicide huh? I didn't kill anybody" (exhale).
