Candy Foster has been performing classic rhythm and blues throughout the midwest for 40 years.
Based in Champaign-Urbana, 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 the
audiences. Collectively, the Shades of Blue musicians have performed with such major acts as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, Natalie Cole, and The Four Tops. 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.
