Chas started playing harmonica around age eight when a family friend presented him with a set of them and was soon joining in the music. When Metallica hit the charts with “Kill ‘em All”, he decided he’d try his hand at drums and hasn’t stopped since. At that point, his home was the location a private studio that recorded the likes of Johnny Shines, John Brim with Bob Margolin, Pinetop Perkins and George Kilby, Jr. and Chas met and learned from, among others, Jerry “Boogie” McCain, the last of the legendary second generation blues harmonica players. At age sixteen, Chas played his first paid gig and later joined his mother, Alabama blues woman Memphis Annie in Memphis, Tennessee on historic Beale Street and after an audition became the house drummer for “The Blues Alley Trio” which included sax legend, Tot Randolph. In nineteen ninety seven while the band was playing a string of gigs in Panama City Beach, Florida, Chas made his first appearance on MTV, featured in a spot with Snoop Dog on “The Week in Rock”. Through a short stint of college and on to the present, Chas worked with various bands across the south, southeast and west coast. He’s performed with Kenny Wayne Sheppard, Cody McCarver of Confederate Railroad, Jeff Cook of the band Alabama, Roger Allen Wade, The Zach Brown Band, Pierce Pettis, and the legendary B.B. King. He’s been called a “Wandering Guru” by Atlanta Magazine. He’s been featured in over thirty publications and 10 National TV/news agencies across the states for his achievements and music. He’s played over two thousand gigs in thirty-three states at over a thousand venues including three trips to the International Blues Competition hosted by the W. C. Handy Blues Foundation and was influential in organizing the T. A. G. Blues Society and BluesFest. HE IS COMING TO PLAY FOR YOU!!!!!!
