Chuck Bramlet's talent and professionalism was "the icing on the cake" at our special 80th birthday celebration. His skillful and beautiful playing was greatly enjoyed by all; his music was the perfect added touch to our party. Chuck showed up on time, was dressed very nicely, and played throughout the entire event. He was also extremely accommodating in customizing a playlist of our most memorable artists and favorite songs and then impressively, committing them all to memory and performing them without any sheet music. Thank you Chuck for a job extremely well done! Two thumbs up!
His ambient, moody approach to songs appeals to all age groups. From current pop hits all the way back to early folk and traditional favorites and from early Stax and Motown to hard rock and soul of the sixties and seventies to old Appalachian ballads, Chuck can cover a wide range of styles and tastes.
Chuck's roots as a professional musician go way back. He was a member of Rebel Train, an EastWest America band. He was a founding member of Lisa Hayes and the Violets, another major label artist (Atlantic Records). He recorded and toured with Gingersol (Trampoline Records) and BARDO. He has performed a number of times at SXSW and toured with widely respected country artist Heather Waters as part of a duo for two years, providing the sole instrumentation.
Artists who have worked with Chuck testify to his professionalism as a musician:

--Heather Waters, singer, songwriter, recording artist
"Whether we were touring, recording, rehearsing or just hanging out, Chuck was always there when needed. He always gave me one hundred percent. More like one fifty."
--Leslie King, singer, songwriter, recording artist with the band BARDO.
"Chuck never fails to deliver a great performance. He's original, authentic, and a rare musical talent."
--Lisa Hayes, leader of the Violets, star of film "Road to Austin"
