An evening with The Plunk and Phunk Orchestra (Debra Dobkin & Mark "Pocket" Goldberg), Carey Appel, Art Podell, and The Enzymes with the Active Ingredients.
An LA native, Carey has been songwriting for just under three years, having released two albums to critical acclaim with a new EP on the way. This soulful storyteller is reminiscent of the late Eva Casssidy; her rich vocals narrating some of our innermost secrets fused with heartwarming honesty. An advocate for children’s charities, proceeds from her music help those in need.
