Jon Carroll at In Your Ear 

Friday, Feb. 19.

Long before Will Ferrell's legendary anchorman persona Ron Burgundy revived the song's relevance, one-hit wonder “Afternoon Delight” was the highlight of the Starland Vocal Band's brief but successful recording career. A hit that helped the band snag two Grammy awards -- including Best Vocal Arrangement and Best New Artist -- band members Bill Danoff, Taffy Nivert, Margot Chapman and Jon Carroll would get only four albums in before splitting up to pursue their own solo projects. While not receiving the same national acclaim, songwriter and keyboardist Carroll has enjoyed a localized renaissance in his native Washington, D.C. Taking home numerous awards including Musician of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the Year at the 2007 Washington Area Music Association Awards for his most recent LP “Love Returns,” Carroll is scheduled to play an intimate solo set (sponsored by JAMinc.) at In Your Ear Studios on Friday, Feb. 19, at 6:30 p.m. $15-$20.
