Solana Beach benefit will raise money for singer’s cancer surgery

A star-studded roster of some of Southern California’s finest blues, roots and rockabilly musicians will assemble at the Belly Up Tavern beginning at 7 p.m. Monday, April 30 to raise money for award-winning local blues singer, Candye Kane, who is fighting a resurgence of pancreatic cancer.

The multiple San Diego Music Award-winning singer and Oceanside resident, who recently returned from a European tour, will undergo surgery at Ceders-Sinai Medical Center on April 27.

A musical play about her life, “The Toughest Girl Alive,” sold out performances at San Diego’s Moxie Theatre. She has been nominated for the 2012 BB King Entertainer of the Year Award and Best Contemporary Blues Female.

The benefit will feature performances by Grammy Award-winning guitarist Dave Alvin, R&B singer Javina Magness, The Beat Farmers, Tommy Castro, Rick Estrin & the Night Cats, Debbie Davies, Earl Thomas and Kim Wilson.

The Belly Up Tavern is at 143 S. Cedros Ave. in Solana Beach. Tickets are $30 in advance, $32 at the door, through (858) 481-8140 or bellyup.com.
