Chuck Thurau - Bass, Vocals

Chuck Thurau: Bass/Backing Vocals

I'm Chuck Thurau.....Bassist, Vocalist, Songwriter, Producer, Photographer, Husband and Father...I live in Brooklyn, NY with my wife and kids....I have been in numerous bands (both original and cover) over the years, most notably of which were the 8 years I spent with the popular ska band, "Spider Nick & The Maddogs"....

What got me started on my musical path was the gift of a guitar from my Aunt Jean (she won it as a prize at some church function) and my trusty Radio Shack mono tape recorder. I immediately began writing and recording songs even though I couldn't really play...I was inspired to switch to bass after seeing "KISS" on TV. I wanted to be Gene I figured it was easier than playing guitar....For some bizarre reason I really took to bass....(I'm still not much of a guitar player, but I'm working on it.)
