Chuck Dingée has been playing guitar and singing professionally for over 40 years. His extensive repertoire of classic rock, folk-rock, and other tunes is quite diverse. His vocal power and musical abilities can wow big festival audiences and rock nightclubs, but he can also charm families at Farmers Markets or restaurants, or couples at weddings.
Chuck was inspired by the Beatles, who he saw in Chicago in 1966. He plays quite a few Beatles songs, including popular hits like She Loves You, All You Need Is Love, and Yesterday; Romantic love songs like Till There Was You, I Will, and In My Life; and fun rockers such as I Am The Walrus, A Day In the Life, and While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
Chuck also plays a large selection of Paul Simon songs, such as Sounds of Silence, Bridge Over Troubled Water, and Me & Julio. Other artists Chuck covers include Cat Stevens, John Prine, Michael Franks, Elvis Costello, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, and Fats Waller. He can pull off Every Little Thing She Does is Magic by The Police, or Gershwin's It Ain't Necessarily So.
Chuck also plays in a duo with Sharon Mayson (vocals/percussion) called Free Harmony or with Carr Johnson (keys/guitar/vocals), and is a founding member of The Walrus.
Free Harmony opened for America at The Tulalip Casino on March 8, and at the Yakima Legends Casino March 9.
