The Candymakers has a show on 06/02/2013 at 06:00 PM @ QC Pride Fest in Davenport, IA http://www.reverbnation.com/c./poni/203956704 #concert
“The Candymakers started and finished the night with sets of inspired soul, funk, and blues songs. Despite having to leave a few of their own behind in the Quad Cities, the remaining six members of the band put on a stellar show. Lead Singer Alan Sweet's huge voice and James Brown dance moves, combined with the fantastic ensemble sound of the rest of the band, illustrated right away to the Gas Lamp crowd why this band won the Iowa Blues Challenge and the Mississippi Valley Blues Society's Blues Challenge. From covers of Buddy Guy, Bill Withers, and even Bob Marley, to their own original tunes, The Candymakers wowed the packed house with their "ear candy". Do not miss this band at the 2012 Winter Blues Fest in three weeks, and make sure you pick up a copy of their new CD (it should be out a couple of days before the festival)”
