2019 kicks off with Candy Foster & Shades of Blue! A Danville native, and regional music legend, CANDY FOSTER has been performing classic rhythm and blues throughout the midwest for over 55 years. Based in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, Candy is well-known as one of the hardest working blues singers in the area. His strong vocals and high energy style always draws interactive enthusiasm from his audience.

Over the years, Candy has appeared with such blues greats as B.B. King, Tyrone Davis, Artie Blues Boy White, Lonnie Brooks, Etta James, Big Daddy Kinsey, KoKo Taylor, Junior Wells, Clarence Gatemouth Brown, Little Milton, Eddie Shaw, Son Seals, Bobby Blue Bland, and Bobby Rush. Backed by seasoned professionals and performing the tight arrangements of the Shades of Blue, Candy provides audiences with “pure” rhythm and blues grooves that first originated from Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, and Memphis (Delta) areas.
