Chuck performing at a private affair, Equinox, VT. …a couple of tunes. Feb 2017
With nearly fifty years of performing experience, Chuck still enjoys leading audiences in sing-alongs and vintage folk, Irish and calypso music by such artists as The Kingston Trio, James Taylor, Peter Paul and Mary, The Irish Rovers and Harry Belafonte.
The recent picture below was taken after a trip to Arizona. Somehow, Chuck found himself with “sidemen” that were uninvited…ha.
At the age of eight, Chuck began his singing career in Los Angeles under the tutelage of the Kingston Trio, with whom he later shared the stage. Acting and modeling rounded out Chuck’s career. In addition to private corporate affairs, he has also worked extensively in the hotel circuit and larger venues, including receiving special request to perform at New York’s World Trade Center early in his career.
