What Was Local Music Mainstay, Blair Dewane’s Cause of Death?
Earlier this week, a downtown Las Vegas music fixture of enormous spirit, Blair Dewane’s cause of death has not been revealed yet after he passed away on September 14, 2022, at the age of 36.
May Blair rest in power; we send our deepest sympathies to the artist’s family, friends, fans, and all of his loved ones during the heartbreaking period.
Even in those early days of The Skooners, the band he founded in the 2000s, even when his hammy banter threatened to overshadow his disarming sincerity, even at his drunkest, he owned both stage and audience.
Blair Dewane had the triple threat of charisma, wit, and heart. He and his four bandmates cut right through even the arms-folded contingency of the Bunkhouse Saloon and Beauty Bar.
It was a sight to behold, everyone awkwardly and gleefully shuffling and wriggling and chanting and outright caroming into one another respective to Blair’s level of wily abandon, fueled by the band’s rollicking charge and whatever was in his cup.

No Official Report about Blair Dewane’s Cause of Death
Although there is no official report about Blair Dewane’s cause of death yet, many controversial rumors are claiming he was suffering from an illness recently.
Our team does not confirm any rumors about the news, though you can be sure that we are attempting our best to find related information about the tragedy and provide the latest updates as soon as possible; but do not forget that family privacy should be respected.
During its 2016 set ahead of Texas post-rock act Explosions in the Sky, Blair showed a few goofball flashes but settled himself squarely in the Rusty pocket — just enough recalibration from the Schooner days, just enough showmanship tweakery.
Many of us had high hopes for the band to break out. We were ready to share Blair with the rest of the world. And that compounds this huge loss. And yet, an enormous spirit like Blair’s never fully disappears. It’s there in his bands’ music — and in our hearts.
One of his friends describes the artist in this way, “He was wild, empathetic, kind, and funny. A fireball with a melancholy voice and a fu*king incredible songwriting talent.”
