“pop hooks galore, a razor-sharp funk rhythm section, a solid work ethic and a star-caliber singer…” -Jack Walton, South Bend Tribune
“…chops are strong…command of the genre is certifiable, and who generate excitement at every turn.” -Jeff Tamarkin, Billboard
Grounded in soul, the Charles Walker Band has been compared to Prince, Bruno Mars, Chaka Khan, and James Brown. The Milwaukee based band has refined their sound into Neo-Funk, a fusion of funk infused rhythms with pop melodies.
The band’s core is a four piece, with Charles playing sax and vocals, Porsche Carmon, on bass and vocals, Karla Roberts, sax and vocals and Demetris “Roc Boi” Vance on drums. They have opened for national acts including Earth Wind & Fire, the Commodores, BB King, Cameo, Aaron Neville, and Richard Marx. The band has been featured on Fox News, NBC Live in the Morning, The Morning Blend, and have been nominated five years in a row for best soul/R&B act by WAMI, winning in 2013.
