I met Michael when he came to Columbus Nebraska. It’s his second or third time here and they’re coming back again the same time next year. A year out and I booked Michael Charles again because he’s just awesome.

Michael Charles and His Band - Blues Band - Chicago, Illinois Event Location: Bobby’s Place, Olde World Tavern Calgary, Alberts Canada Event Type: venue 25th October 2019
I’ve never seen any other artist play for three and half solid hours without taking a single break. We love Michael, I can’t even put into words and he’s, we look forward to his visit every year and it’s the only band I stop what I am doing and come out and watch. He could play anywhere and fill any venue and here he is and I always say I am so humble he is here. He could play downtown Calgary somewhere in a venue eight times this size and have it packed full.
