Candye Kane Blues Diva Candye Kane Rocks the House at Highway 99 Singer Candye Kane brings her jump blues and boogie-woogie rock to Highway 99 Blues Club. Candye's played with artists like Social Distortion, Dwight Yoakam and Los Lobos since the beginning of her career, so she paints from a big musical palette. A teenage mother, pin-up girl and punk-rock anarchist at 21, Candye has triumphed as a true survivor with more than ten CDs releases, millions of international road miles and a reputation as a funny and fierce live performer to her credit. She also recently won the Best Contemporary Blues Female Award from the National Blues Foundation.
Two Shows: 7:30pm & 9:30pm Candye Kane believes the universe makes no mistakes. She doesn’t view a stereotypical patriarchal God seated on a velvet throne in flowing white robes granting wishes and deciding who will live or die. Kane believes the universe, or your higher power or whatever you feel comfortable calling it, has already made decisions and already knows what you are capable of, long before you take your first step or have your first all night cry over the rejection of a girl or boy at school. The universe has already strengthened you for the most radical endurance race of all...LIFE. In 1983, Candye was a teenage mom from the poor side of Los Angeles, it was welfare and food stamps by day, hard drug use and nude modeling by night, while at the same time yodeling and moshing alongside groundbreaking punk bands like the Circle Jerks, X and FEAR in Hollywood’s underground music scene. To help pay the bills she appeared on the covers of Hustler and High Society, whilst peddling her cassettes of original hillbilly music to anyone who would listen along the Venice, CA Boardwalk. It didn’t take long before Candye signed a management deal with The Halsey Agency, the first agency to promote American music behind the Iron Curtain, she became close friends with Dave Alvin, Marty Stuart and Dwight Yoakum who wisely encouraged her to always be honest about her colorful past. "Be yourself Candye. It's what you're good at" said Yoakum. Candye Kane has that big, brassy voice that has authority and sass; the kind of thing men like because its seductive and women like because its powerful - BB King to the San Diego Reader If you haven't taken Candye Kane seriously before, now is the time to listen. This is a great album and the best of her career. -Richard Ludmerer/ Blueswax
