Lauded by Chicago Tribune's Dan Kenig as "Australia's answer to Stevie Ray Vaughan" and praised by WGN's Rose Tellez as "sounding like Clapton" the concert by Chicago Blues Hall of Fame artist Michael Charles and his Band will take you on a guitar driven journey through thirty eight years and thirty nine releases of original music along with some well known covers. The well re hearsed precision and level of energy is spectacular and will leave you astounded by the driving force, the contemporary blues, and the soulful ballads of Michael Charles.

My work samples I feel embodies the seriousness of my craft performing a song I wrote in my studio, my humbleness towards the great artists who I cherish, and part of my touring life.
Michael Charles and His Bands have been recording and touring for the last 39 years. Michael's discography holds 39 releases and he tours annually across the USA, Canada, and Australia.
The main goal of and artistic vision of my work is to create music from within myself that people can listen to, enjoy, get excited about, relate to, help, and make them smile.
