Ms Debbie Duncan Live at Vieux Carre

August 5, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 11:55 pm

Vieux Carré is owned by the Minneapolis Dakota co-owners, Lowell Pickett and Richard Erickson. Starting in 1985, Pickett originally operated the Dakota in St. Paul’s Bandana Square, before partnering with Richard Erickson and relocating to the current location on Nicollet Mall. A loyal group of music and culinary arts lovers dedicate their time to creating the exciting atmosphere that is the Dakota. Today that group has expanded to include the team on the East side of the river. The dedication to celebrating life and it’s pleasures by delivering well crafted cocktails and cuisine along with highlighting the wealth of local musical talent on stage continues in the small underground space . Vieux Carré offers a seasonal menu of creole inspired plates and craft cocktails, while blending all genres of local music to create a “speakeasy” vibe. For those who sparkle when twilight beckons, we eagerly await you.
Debbie Duncan may be considered the upper Midwest’s “best-kept-musical secret,” but she has become a local legend and treasure in her home of Minneapolis. Her personality, vitality, and versatility all contribute to that fact. She is a terrific entertainer, and this is certainly part of her appeal.

“First Lady of Song” as she is so often referred to by media people, club owners, and dj’s, is a stunning and versatile vocalist who captivates audiences and jazz musicians. Minneapolis Star Tribune reports “She’s superb on funky upbeat workouts, tender ballads and all kinds of jazz numbers; she energizes the ordinary and puts her stamp on just about everything she does.”

“Duncan’s a terrific entertainer… But more than that, she’s a superb singer – probably the finest in an area that boasts some excellent female vocalists… She showed just how good she is… when she tackled ballads, bebop, blues to some scat choruses reminiscent of Sarah Vaughan and finally to a concluding soul shot.. She sang with abandon, yet with control which most singers never learn.” -Bob Protzman, St Paul Pioneer Press
