Biography

Hello this is Chuck. I could go on and tell you all about my stupendous accomplishments of where I have played. Award Nominations, and on and on.
I am a Singer/Songwrter. That is what I do. I live in one of the most beautiful and pristine areas of the country. Lake George NY. I like to go hiking in the High Peaks region and find myself on top of a Mountain with Spectacular pond or stream! I Love flyfishing. I am an animal lover, and am just trying to be the best person I can be. I am very fortunate to have a great network of supportive friends and family, who allow me to be me. I was in the corporate world for many years, and not long ago decided life is too short, and returned to my first passion. Playing and writing music. As far as influences are concerned, everyday is an influence. All the things you see touch and smell are all relative..There is also many musical influences, but probably the most influential was a local band in the late 70's and early 80's [Bittersweet Harmony] They truly instilled in me a desire to perform!!

Member of the Lake George Association. [The oldest lake preservation society in North America]

Founders Society member of the ASPCA. Active in events. Raising awareness, and Charitable donations.

Very active in the surrounding communities with
fundraisers, benefits, and special events.

I hope that gives you an idea of who I am, and what I am about.

Set List

I don't use a set list per se'. I like to let the vibe of the crowd dictate what I am going to perform. I feel that way you never get the same show on any given night! My first set is generally 2 hours, and I feel that owners and managers, and organizers appreciate how hard I work for them. I will say I play a wide variety of genres. Ranging from Folk, Blues, Classic Rock, Acoustic/Rock, Reggae, Alternative, and Country. I will list some artists and songs.

Stevie Ray Vaughn,Pride and Joy
