~ Aug 28 Blues Jam Special Guest - TIA CARROLL ~ 

Powerhouse Bay Area vocalist Tia Carroll is constantly being compared to legendary female singers Tina Turner, Koko Taylor and Aretha. Sure, her power and sassy style of story telling may be similar, but Tia has her own unique star power that's evident every time she hits the stage. 

Tia has toured with legendary blues icons Jimmy McCracklin & Sugar Pie DeSanto to Canada, France and Italy where she left a great impression on the audiences there. Tia Carroll was featured during the Jazzkarr featival in Tallinn Estonia. Awarded West Coast Female Blues vocalist of the year 2007 and recipient of the Jus Blues Music Foundation’s Traditional Blues Woman Of The Year 2008 and Band Leader of the Year in 2009.

Her 2009 Italian tours earned great reviews and her performance in Switzerland at the Lucerne Blues Festival is highly anticipated.
