Legendary Jazz Musician Carl Evans Jr. fundraiser at Humphreys, San Diego

Family, friends and fans will join together for a special event at Humphreys in honor of San Diego native Carl Evans Jr., frontman of nationally acclaimed jazz band Fattburger on Sunday, February 10, 2008 from 6 pm to 12 am.

Evans is in the midst of some serious health challenges and all proceeds collected from the event will be donated to a Health Relief Fund in his name. Admission to the event is $12 and will feature performances by Ruby & the Red Hots, Jesse Davis, Barbara Jamerson, Mark Lessman, Reggie Smith, Janice Edwards, Jermoe Dawson, Darryl Williams, Glen Fisher, and many more of Carl's friends.

"This event is not only a way to show support to Carl, but also a celebration of his incredible journey as an artist," said Shauna Aguirre, Talent Buyer and Restaurant Manager at Humphreys. "Carl has been an important part of Humphreys for many years and we want to show him our support in this difficult time."

One of contemporary instrumental music's most popular mainstays since the dawn of what radio termed Smooth Jazz in the late 1980's, Fattburger's melodic and funky, blues and Latin spiced rhythm and jazz sound has helped both create and define the genre giving the band international fame. While many trends and new artists have come and gone in the last decade, Fattburger endures on the strength of what Evans calls "remaining true to ourselves, focusing on feeling rather than the latest sound."

Humphreys is renowned for its live music every night of the week, unparalleled waterfront views and its top-notch cuisine. Executive Chef Paul Murphy has reinvented the menu at Humphreys giving the restaurant a New Attitude to compliment the chic refreshed look. The new menu features modern global cuisine with influences from around the world, including Asian, North African, American and more embellished by his classical French training.

    It seems there are a lot of people out there doing good things for good causes.

    Singer/Songwriter Elyse Bruce has compiled an album called "Countdown to Midnight" which raises funds and awareness for autism. Word is songs like "The Mad Hatter", "Somewhere in Detroit", "Say you'll wait for me," and "Late Night in the Borough" have already made it to radio in some venues.
