The Dynamic Miss Faye Carol and Dynamic Duo! host "Blues in the Afternoon," featuring Ambassador of the Blues Alvon Johnson.

The Dynamic Miss Faye Carol is a legend in the Bay Area blues community, having made her reputation performing with Oakland blues and funk legend Johnny Talbot & De Thangs in the 1960s. She went on to share the stage with artists such as Charles Brown, Ray Charles, Marvin Gaye, and Albert King, and in 2015 was awarded a star on the Oakland Blues Walk of Fame.  

Ms. Carol is proud to feature special guest Alvon Johnson, whose authentic blues guitar style and comedic skills have made him an international favorite. Alvon has won countless awards for his musical and entertainment prowess and has performed with artists such as The
Drifters, The Coasters, Bobby Day, and many more. If you love the blues, this rare collaboration between two Blues legends is surely not to be missed!

"Every Faye Carol performance is a master class - a deep dive into the soul-steeped marrow of jazz and blues. A Bay Area institution, the Berkeley vocalist needs only one set to leave an
indelible impression on her listeners who know just what to expect if they pay attention to her billing as The Dynamic Miss Faye Carol." - Andrew Gilbert, Bay Area News Group
