Description

The Bay Area's Queen of Jazz, Blues, and R&B and her dynamite pianist Joe Warner will groove you through the holiday season and propel you into the New Year.

Enjoy Geoffrey's Inner Circle's full bar and $12 soul food plates and stay for the vocal and instrumental jam session following the show. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door.

"Steeped in jazz, blues, and R&B, Faye Carol turns every performance into a triumph." –San Francisco Chronicle

"(Faye) Carol can croon soul and standards, scat hurtling bebop lines and deliver torch songs with scorching intensity, and everything she does is steeped in the blues." –Berkeleyside

"If you have yet to see the Dynamic Miss Faye live, I suggest hauling ass to Berkeley. She certainly does live up to her name. Performing blues and jazz songs from yesteryear with accompaniment from Joe Warner on piano, the pair bounce off one another, creating a spectacular show. The vocal range and sporadic, rapid rhythm of The Dynamic Miss Faye is executed with such finesse and artfulness that it's jaw-dropping...and a complete joy to witness." –The Bay Bridged Blog

"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 live 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." –Bay Area News Group

After beginning her career with gospel music, Faye Carol made her name singing with Oakland blues and funk legend Johnny Talbot & De Thangs before forming her own trio and gaining infamy in San Francisco's jazz, blues, and cabaret clubs of the 1970s and 80s. She has shared the stage with Joan Baez, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Albert King, Charles Brown, & Eddie 'Cleanhead' Vinson, among others. Miss Faye is the recipient of countless awards including the proclamation of a city-wide “Faye Carol Day” in the City of Berkeley, a Jefferson Award for Public Service, the 2016 Bay Area Jazz Journalists Association Jazz Hero Award, and a star on the Oakland Walk of Fame. fayecarol.com

Pianist Joe Warner is one of the Bay Area’s brightest young talents. He frequently works with The Dynamic Miss Faye Carol and has also performed or recorded with Stephanie Crawford, Marcus Shelby, John Santos, Johnny Talbot, Mary Stallings, The California Honeydrops, John Handy, Valerie Troutt, and Denise Perrier, among others. joewarnermusic.com
