Uncle Charlie - made up of Andrew Kelsey (guitar, lead vocals), Greg Markles (drums, vocals) and Shanon Paul (bass, vocals) - is a funky blend of Maroon 5 fused with the soulful grooves of Dave Matthews. Their sound is intoxicating. Full of rich melodies and three-part harmonies, their music fills you with a warm buzz that leaves you wanting more.
After several years working separately in multiple projects as professional performers, founding members Andrew Kelsey (guitar, vocals) and Greg Markles (drums, vocals) re-connected at a college reunion improv show. Andrew asked Greg to sit in on a show and the chemistry was instant.
Uncle Charlie’s unique yet familiar sound grew out of a commitment to the bands mantra “no standard fair”. After several stages of experimentation and various lines ups, with the addition of Shanon Paul (bass, vocals), Uncle Charlie galvanized it’s identity as a three piece, harmonizing, party friendly show.
With the completion of it’s 2009 self titled EP, Uncle Charlie is touring several cities throughout the west coast and looking forward to touring the Midwest and east coast later this year. At which time, Uncle Charlie will be releasing its first full-length studio album at the beginning of 2010.
Having an extremely loyal and ever growing fan base, Uncle Charlie is an experience not to be missed. The band loves performing and watching their music create good times and smiling faces. Uncle Charlie is committed to giving their best to every show.
