CHUCK WANSLEY

Serving Napa Valley / Sonoma Valley / HEALDSBURG / LODI

Since he was 18, Chuck Wansley lived and breathed singing and drumming, making it natural for him to pursue becoming a professional musician. After leaving his home town in New York, he traveled worldwide with the youth group "Up With People" for a few years. Then he returned to the US and performed with New England's finest R&B group, "Match". After moving back to NYC, he signed with  Prism Records and Motown. He then became the founding member of the urban techno group Warp-9, performing live and producing two albums.

In time, his career led him to Los Angeles where he developed a stellar reputation as a dynamic performer, bandleader and vocalist, conveying a range of music styles. Today he leads his band, performing tunes from the latest contemporary pop and R&B hits to old school Motown, retro-70's, 80's, 90's, American swing and jazz standards, blues and Latin specialty, performing in the poshest venues from the Newport Coast in California to the mansions of Newport, Rhode Island, and from Napa to Paris - along with frequent solo appearances in Japan and the Pacific Rim.
