Deliciously Stanky, Dynamically Funky, Recklessly Hopeful. Grounded in soul, the Charles Walker Band has been compared to Prince, Bruno Mars, The Brand New Heavys, James Brown and Sharon Jones. The Milwaukee based band has refined their sound into Neo-Funk, a fusion of funk and soul infused rhythms with pop melodies. The seven piece band rehearses relentlessly in Charles’ basement, amidst couches and low ceilings, the trombonist having to stoop the entire time, continually evolving their performance. These questions are continually posed: How can we make this sound tighter? How can we arrange this to make it more stimulating? How can we make this song look visually different? They combine this quest for musical excellence with deep gospel influences and positive lyrical messages. The Charles Walker Band is Deliciously Stanky, Dynamically Funky, Recklessly Hopeful.
As a testament to their live magic, the group has opened for national acts including Earth Wind & Fire, Aaron Neville, Robert Cray, BB King, Richard Marx, Eddie Shaw (Howlin Wolf’s Sax Player), Booker T, Cameo and Bernard Allison. The ensemble has been featured on Fox News, NBC “Live in the Morning,” nationally syndicated “Discover Wisconsin,” and was the featured artist on the Blues Revue (2010) and Soul Bag (2007) sampler CDs and has been nominated four years in a row for best soul/r&b act in Wisconsin by WAMI, winning the award in 2013.
