Li’l Chuck: One man band

Play­ing in Wai­mate and Oa­maru this Novem­ber.

Waitaki Herald - - WHAT’S ON -

Lil Chuck is an au­then­tic one man band per­form­ing ‘good time mu­sic with old time style’.

Hav­ing spent a life­time rum­mag­ing through the draw­ers of 1930’s - 50’s mu­sic, Chuck’s mostly orig­i­nal songs are in­spired by the sounds of the era - Blues, Early Jazz, Western Swing, Rag­time etc. and are uniquely pre­sented in the style of street per­form­ers from those glory days. Stick­ing to the tra­di­tional one man band for­mat, Chuck plays all the in­stru­ments si­mul­ta­ne­ously.

Cap­ti­vat­ing story telling in­ter­twines ef­fort­lessly with heart stop­ping har­mon­ica & mul­ti­ple gui­tar styles un­der­pinned by his left and right feet fran­ti­cally pound­ing the kick and hi hat. The lis­tener is left sim­ply won­der­ing, ‘‘How the hell does he do that’’?

Li’l Chuck came to Christchurch from the U.K. in 2003.

Li’l Chuck has per­formed at may high pro­file events around New Zealand. He re­cently played sup­port for Amer­i­can leg­end Jimmy Buf­fet and Blues­man ‘Blind Boy’ Pax­ton and The Topp Twins.
