To our concerned and loyal friends of Ace's:
There are many rumors floating around town about the closing of Ace's Live. Ace's has NOT been sold. If it was sold, we would be closed. We have been exploring options of possibly relocating it in Bradenton in the future, but nothing has been decided and certainly not finalized. It is business as usual for all of us and live music lives! As always, thank you for your continued support!

Sunday March 9 – Marquise Knox Band – 5 til 9 pm


Marquise Knox Band

No Cover  Non-Smoking Show

Knox’s debut album MANCHILD was nominated for a Blues Music Award for Best New Artist Debut. The album was recorded when he was 16, in two nights, during an ice storm in a church with the world renowned Michael Burks and his band. There is even a song called Ice Storm on the album. The release received worldwide acclaim, including Living Blues’ Best Debut Artist Award and a Blues Music Award nomination for Best Debut Artist. Marquise then recorded a direct-to-disc album while in town for the next year’s Crossroads.
Marquise recently released his third album, Here I Am, once again recorded at the legendary Blue Heaven Studios in Salina, Kansas. It features Marquise and his band, with a little help from Wayne Sharp of Michael Burk’s band sitting in on B-3 and piano. Nine originals, and three reverent covers of Marquise’s favorite Muddy Waters tunes.

I think this excerpt from Here I Am’s liner notes says it best. “When you listen to Marquise – 19 years old when he recorded this title – you get the sense that this is what those masters must have sounded like as young men. Marquise’s blues are so transparent and bare. It’s so easy to feel his music as totally legitimate. That’s above all what makes it so appealing. That’s what makes Marquise Knox special. He’s the whole package. A throwback blues master on the rise. Anybody believe in reincarnation?
