FIRST SATURDAY CONCERT SERIES: THE CHUCK HALL BAND
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4TH AT 6:00PM • Center for the Performing Arts Outdoor Amphitheater
Concessions provided by Short Leash Mobile Hotdog Eatery

The Chuck Hall Band creates art in the form of music. The recipe they use is simple: Start with blues that’s so greasy it clogs the arteries in your ears. Stir in generous portions of refined talent and raw passion, add a dash of showmanship sprinkled with a touch of salty humor and cook on high heat until it smokes. Serve steaming hot.  The result is a spicy musical feast that satisfies and always leaves you wanting more.

The chef, Chuck Hall, was born in Louisiana and raised on the Texas side listening to the likes of Lightnin’ Hopkins, Muddy Waters, Freddie King, and Albert King as well as many others. Since moving to the Valley in 1984, he has become a well-known and respected musician. As a 35+ year veteran in the music business Chuck  has played with some of the best, opening shows for Albert Collins, B.B. King, Johnny Winter, Albert King, Willie Dixon, Robert Cray, Gregg Allman, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, and many others. He recently opened for  Charlie Musselwhite and Robert Cray again!

In addition, he has written over 100 songs and more than half of the band’s playlist is original material. Chuck’s unique talent and uncompromising dedication to his craft have earned him accolades among fans and critics. He won “Best Blues Guitarist” in Arizona two years in a row, and his song “Young Boy” was selected Best Song by Soundboard magazine. He also was inducted into the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame in 2000. His most recent offerings include a two-disc compilation CD and the ‘Live in Sweden’ disc.
