Performing on six and twelve string guitars as well as keyboard and a little harmonica now and again, they entertain the crowd with "classic rock" standards from such renowned artists as the Beatles, Crosby Stills & Nash, Simon & Garfunkel, America and a host of others including current and more recent artists such as Jack Johnson, Zac Brown Band and Snow Patrol to name but a few. In September the duo plays private events on Sunday the 3rd and Saturday the 16th but fear not, publicly the duo returns to Prairie Krafts Brewing in Buffalo Grove 7-10pm on Friday the 15th. On Saturday October 6th the duo will perform for a high school reunion "ice breaker" event in Lake Zurich and on Saturday October 28th they'll be at Copper Fiddle Distillery in Lake Zurich.

PERFORMER YES...BUT AN ARTIST FIRST
Chuck's true art is songwriting. Having a strong appetite for poetic verse he's written at least 300 poems of which about half have been put to music. Yep, driven by the vocals of John, Paul, George & Ringo he's always on the hunt for strong melodies and powerful soul-searing harmonies.
