With a Little Bit of Funk!
"In a voice coated with whiskey and honey, Kaye Bohler sings the blues layered with a little bit of funk, R & B, jazz and San Francisco's psychedelic sound. But it's her lyrical honesty, trained voice and accomplished musicians that keep her band booked just about every weekend throughout the Bay Area and beyond. " Read More...

Celebrated singer/songwriter Kaye Bohler has captivated audiences from Japan to Alaska for over 25 years. Kaye's show is bathed in southern Soul, Blues, and Funk as she knocks you and rocks you out. She's a songbird with a child's heart and the fire in her belly of Tina Turner. An unmistakably powerful and engaging performer, Kaye Bohler really knows how to pull you in and make you dance, cry and laugh too.
She possesses a formidable triple threat as a singer, songwriter, and bandleader with five CD's now under her belt. Her latest CD: "Handle the Curves" has received excellent reviews as Kaye continues to build her reputation as one of the best America roots and soul singers working on the West Coast. The publication Blues Matters wrote: "I'm not normally a great fan of titles like "the white Tina Turner" as they sometimes seem to demean both parties but I will certainly go along with it in this case. Kaye Bohler, out of California, has a big strong voice and on this, her fifth album, she proves that she can certainly handle a soul tune with ease and class - take a listen to the opener "Diggin On My Man" - and the blues good and proper as on the slow impassioned blues of the title track "Handle the Curves". I somehow don't get the impression Kaye is really talking about the curves on the road!"
Her fourth album "Like A Flower" has garnered tremendous, stellar reviews even comparing her songwriting to Carole King. Every melody and lyric of this CD was crafted by Kaye. "Like a Flower" also features the most notable and seasoned veterans of the Bay Area Rhythm and Blues Sound, including: Tommy Castro, Danny Caron, Garth Webber, Sammy Varela, and Nancy Wright.
This Southern California native now calls the SF Bay area her home. Locally, Kaye can be seen spreading her vocal chops in the jazz and contemporary music genres but holds American root music to be the power and authenticity that drives all the material she covers. With a three octave plus vocal range, a curvaceous silhouette, and a disarming wit on stage, she engages and draws the listener in like few other performers.
