Chuck King-Trumpet and Vocals

Chuck King Chuck's wish to be an entertainer manifested when he was in kindergarten doing impressions of Jimmy Durante, Ed Sullivan and other celebrities of the day at civic clubs. When given the opportunity to play in the school band, he selected the trumpet that he had heard his older brother play. His enjoyment for the trumpet and music was incorporated right away towards his goal of being a performer.

His first professional experience came in Jr. High when his band director invited him to join an adult dance band. Chuck's life in music was given its roots. Over the years, when there haven't been other outlets, Chuck would form bands of his own. He has led swing style bands and Dixieland combos and performed a range of styles from rock to symphonic.

In addition to The Old Fashioned Rhythm Method and The Legendary Pineapple Skinners, Chuck does many engagements at The Club in Birmingham where he is a regular with the Joe Giattina Orchestra. He has had the opportunity to back-up such notables as Dinah Shore and Sid Caesar. He has played with Peter Duchin, Jean Kittrell and is a member of Die Mitternaechters. In addition to music performance, Chuck is a photographer and music teacher.
