Overview

You never know what to expect with one of Chuck's shows, except that you'll have a great time - he'll lift you on top of the clouds or will have you in deep reflection through his songs. One thing he is however is real - it is not a pre-programmed cookie cutter show. He loves getting people involved.

NUANCES, QUIRKS, STORIES, AND SUCH..... (written by Mari Rusnak, aka "Torchy Blaine")

Chuck Schaeffer doesn't believe in cookie-cutter almost-country music, so he's determined to create his own style.....

Running on two speeds, "Stop" and "Go", Schaeffer and Co. can slide into John Prine territory with good-old-days memories of Baseball Videos (listen closely, and you'll swear you can almost hear Prine's echoes of ".....ham-burgers! cheese-burgers! Wilbur and Orville Wright! John Garfield in the afternoon, Montgomery Clift at night...." from his own "Picture Show"), all the while dipping into Clint Black sharpness and Tim McGraw tones, but without the hokey mess....

Creating songs with just heart, a good time, and a little wisdom for good measure, Chuck is a man of determination and endurance. He invites us on his road of personal discovery, and it appears to be a trip where the songwriter is actively pulling all of these influences and ideas out of the atmosphere surrounding him, and with grit and guts, molds them into a legacy of cool delivery, a breath of fresh air, and a couple of nods to nostalgia.

Don't be mistaken.... this ain't like no country you've ever heard of before.
