Thursday Morning Jam Sessions: Joi Carter
Baltimore Blend guest Joi Carter, also known as JC, is a Baltimore native. Her fiery sound and spunky stage performance are indicative of her love for 80's music, and her childhood in a house filled with soca, funk, and rock.
A former member of the Washington, D.C. based Go-Go band 'Mambo Sauce,' JC has performed at some of the best live music venues in the United States including the House of Blues (New Orleans, Dallas, Anaheim, West Hollywood), the 9:30 Club, Fox Theatre, The Kennedy Center, 7th Street Entry, The National, The Norva and The Bowery Ballroom, along with local venues such as Jammin Java, State Theatre, Whitlows on Wilson, Recher Theatre and Rams Head Live (Baltimore)
In 2009 Mambo Sauce released their debut album ‘The Recipe,’ followed by a 15-U.S. city tour in 2011, opening up for Grammy Nominated Reggae band SOJA.
JC has also shined as a background singer for R&B crooner Carl Thomas and has toured internationally with 'The Pocket' a Washington, DC-based alternative-rock-reggae band. JC’s experience has taken her around the world from China to Mexico and now this dynamic performer brings her fierce energy center stage as a solo artist.
