Notes:
Outdoor parties of this nature were the norm in the 1990’s, put on by a private group or person, on private property. A typical party was 200-800 people, featuring live cover bands, a pig roast and a small $5 cover.

These events came to an end, an end of an era. Society had changed and law enforcement was cracking down. Add the liability, risks, insurance, bylaws, rising costs, permits, food & safety regulations, new staging laws, and the hassle of putting on such an event was no longer worth it unless the government was stepping in to make a profit off it.

Dead End Charlie in 2010

July 12, 2010

Band: Dead End Charlie
Genre: Rock
Home: Chatham-Kent
Year: 2010

Members
Frank E. Fitz
: Lead Vocals, Guitar
Aug Polowick: Lead Guitar
Paul Demars: Drums, Backing Vocals
Dwayne Purdy: Bass, Backing Vocals.

The group put out a Demo CD in 2008 that was a good solid rock record. This time around, Paul exchanges his lead vocal duties to play the drums where he feels most at home. So who is the new singer? No problem… the group scooped up Phil Smith (A.K.A. Franklin Edward Fitz) from one of the best local underground bands in Chatham “The Grave Misunderstanding“.
 The groups new found talent, and fresh creative juices means nothing but good things for them right now.

Note: Paul also currently drums for the band Finding Core.
Aug also performs with The Southwest Blues Review.
