Fog City Blues: Alvon Johnson
Alvon Johnson travels the world singing and swinging jazz standards with Big Bands, and gallops the globe performing the songs that he sang while working with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group, The Coasters.
Alvon sought out, and learned, at the feet of many icons of the Blues, including John Lee Hooker, Pee Wee Crayton, Little Joe Blue, Harmonica Fats, Sonny Green, Frankie Lee, Guitar Shorty, Lowell Folsom, and Buddy Ace. Known for his comedic style, Alvon Johnson worked with many comedians such as Renaldo Rey, Robin Harris, Skillet and Leroy, and Lawanda Paige (Aunt Ester) from the Redd Foxx show. Alvon joins host Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday 12/14 at 9 pm ahead of the release show for his new CD, The Blues Chose Me.
