Charles Button Band

THE CHARLES BUTTON BAND Charles Button is a music industry veteran. He has performed on several occasions at B.B. Kings Blues Club at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. The CHARLES BUTTON BAND performed at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, closing the show for the 2002 Native American Grammy Nominee Showcase. Having gifted band members makes a major difference! A lot of what's good about THE CHARLES BUTTON BAND is the chemistry of band itself, consisting of Charles on bass and vocals, guitarists Kenny Blue Ray and Bob Billington, and Mitch Paey on the trap kit. Everyone is bringing their extreme talents and a lifetime of experience to this party! The eloquence of the interplay between these two consummate guitarists keeps raising the bar and leads us to some enchanting audio experiences, and the solid rhythms of Mitch Paey fill the dance floor..
