Charlie has been performing since the mid-60's as a singer and guitarist, both in bands and as a solo artist. He is “at home” on a stage, and his music has the flavor and authenticity of someone who lived the “oldies” when they were first climbing the charts, fresh and alive! He has a wide range of songs from that era right on through to more recent material. On any given day you can hear him perform songs by Credence, Beatles, Bryan Adams, Tom Petty, the Eagles, Simon & Garfunkel, Peter Cetera, as well as a rich repertoire of Country music old and new, plus Pop, Soul and show tunes, even Disney and children's songs. Charlie's music is really his own unique blend and style, and he comes through as an entertainer, as well as a highly skilled artist.
He was a vocalist with “Sheer Magic”, a soft rock group in Los Angeles from 1999-2001 and recorded with them on their indie-rock album “The Mystery is Gone”.
Early in his career he was a lead vocalist and lead guitar with rock/pop/R&B recording artists The Chancellors in St. Paul-Minneapolis and toured throughout six Midwest states in the mid-60s playing all the major venues and dance halls.
Here in Vegas, along with the occasional party, wedding, or organizational event, Charlie is a regular weekend performer at the Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World (next to the Silverton Casino).
You may also remember him entertaining every week at Lake Las Vegas on the patio of that classy little oriental restaurant, or at the Mt. Charleston Lodge, or when he was at Boca Park in Summerlin (in front of the Sambalatte Coffee House). Or, many years ago as a street performer on the Las Vegas Strip, usually in front of the Palazzo Hotel/Casino, where you would always see people hanging around during his performances, often “dancing in the streets” to a Bob Seger or CCR tune.
