Chuck Mead (and band) will play at our place on Friday, March 16 (doors 7PM, show 8PM). We will host a rare “repeat act” (Chuck played a solo show here 12 years ago!) for this special going-away party, as we say “goodbye” to our friend, Vickie Matheis, who will be moving to Virginia. Here are a few career highlights from Chuck’s website:
Chuck co-founded the famed ‘90s Alternative Country quintet BR5-49. The band’s seven albums, three Grammy nominations and the Country Music Association Award for Best Overseas Touring Act of 1997 built an indelible bridge between authentic American Roots music and millions of fans worldwide. Chuck also co-produced popular tribute albums to Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, guest-lectured at Vanderbilt University, and became a staff writer at one of Nashville’s top song publishers. In 2008, he was the Musical Director/Supervisor for the Broadway/West End musical Million Dollar Quartet (which broke the record in Chicago for longest running musical).
