The Dynamic Miss Faye Carol, a Bay Area legend, remains true to her Mississippi roots infusing the blues into everything from Cole Porter to Michel Legrand songs. Known for her unique style and gift for connecting with her audiences she continues to bring many communities together through music.
Ed sings from the gut, from life experience, doing it with nobility and smarts, while feeling inside a lyricSince recording his first album at the age of 78, Reed has taken his rightful place as one of jazz's most keenly observant singers, a balladeer with a fine-grained baritone who turns familiar standards into wrenching tales. -San Jose Mercury News
"Anton has everything you want to hear in a modern jazz saxophonist appealing consistent tone, an abundance of ideas fueling both his compositions and his improvisation, and superb taste in musical collaboration." The San Francisco Bay Guardian
"A masterful jazz artista guiding light of both the Bay Area and national jazz scenes."
Maria has created a multi-media retrospective, Way Past Midnight, which chronicles her 50 year journey "to the Oasis and Beyond." This special presentation features her signature tune, "Midnight at the Oasis," her hits and fan favs from every stage of her career, as well as fascinating, entertaining, (often humorous!) stories of her personal encounter, friendships, and collaborations with many of the greatest names in music.
