Li'l Chuck The One Man Skiffle Machine is an authentic one man band performing 'good time music with old time style'. Blessed with the ability to handle multiple instruments at a time, he is the master of coordination: blowin', suckin' and pluckin' simultaneously! He cranks out the harmonica, resonator guitar, kick drum, hi hat, kazoo and vocals to give the audience a rollicking good time.

Li'l Chuck has spent a lifetime rummaging through the drawers of 1930's - 50's music. His mainly original songs are inspired by the sounds of the era - blues, early jazz, western swing, ragtime etc. and are uniquely presented in the style of the street performers from those glory days.

Seeing is believing - he aims to prove that men can indeed, multitask…

Li'l Chuck's 2015 album Blues In Full Swing has been met with high praise in NZ and abroad.
