About Chatham area guitarist Chuck:
Raised on a farm outside of Chatham in the hamlet of “Eberts”. Chuck was lead to instrumental music at the age of 10 when he was exposed to playing the ukulele in music class. This was so cool, he thought, if I add a couple more strings … wha-la a guitar. From that day, Chuck longed to be the fastest guitar player in Eberts, a title he still retains.
“The Shake” is a rewarding experience for Chuck. After many years of playing rock and pop music for the baby boomer generation, as well as hauling mountains of equipment … ah-h-h well, nothing has changed, the passion still lives.
