Li’l Chuck: One man band
Playing in Waimate and Oamaru this November.
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.
