Candye Kane Band

Known affectionately as "the toughest girl alive," Candye Kane is once again battling pancreatic cancer, six years past her initial diagnosis. Yet she's touring constantly, playing her own headline shows, plus opening some fun dates for brothers Dave and Phil Alvin. A former L.A. punk scenester and nude model, Candye Kane blossomed long ago into a swell blues, swing and roots-rock/Americana singer and bandleader, a self-stated bar "Superhero" who's "Fit, Fat and Fine." The charismatic Kane has gotten great support since 2007 from her young lead guitarist and co-songwriter, Laura Chavez, a precocious fretboard all-pro. Chavez's tasty and sometimes incendiary licks are on par with the work of Anson Funderburgh, Jimmie & Stevie Ray Vaughan, and other six-string blues heroes -- she's plenty tough herself!
