Seven-time Blues Music Award nominee Candye Kane, The Toughest Girl Alive,” returns to one of her most favorite cities to perform at one of her favorite venues when she returns to Portland for a show at Duff’s Garage on Friday, November 15th. She will be supporting her latest CD, Coming Out Swingin’, filled with outstanding tracks featuring her band of Kennan Shaw on bass, “Baldhead” Fred Rautmann on drums and one of the world’s most amazing guitarists Laura Chavez who is also Candye’s principal songwriting partner. To make the night even more special, Candye will be celebrating her birthday, a miracle in itself considering the lengthy battle she has faced over the past few years with pancreatic cancer. She is a survivor and fighter, and she will not let cancer stand in her way of giving her all in each and every performance. If you have never witnessed a Candye Kane show, make a point of attending as you’ll be treated to a fun, raucous, maybe a bit raunchy and highly entertaining event.

Duff’s Garage is located at 1635 SE 7th. Showtime is 9:00 pm and admission is $15.00. Advance tickets are available at www.tickettomato.com. This is a Cascade Blues Association co-sponsored event, so bring your current membership card to receive a $1.00 discount at the door only. And make sure you arrive early as Candye always packs the room at Duff’s.
