Chucky and the Cyclones started as a club band in Boulder, Colorado in 1983. People who saw them in clubs would ask about their availability for parties and weddings and before long the band had so many private gigs there wasn't time to play clubs.
In 1992 the band went on a DOD tour to Iceland, Belgium, Holland, and Germany for 6 weeks.
In 1994 Chuck took a break to write original music, but in the same style he had played in the Cyclones. The result was the Hillbilly Hellcats band, which has sold over 50,000 CDs and toured all of the U.S., as well as 13 European countries. The band's music is available on Spotify, Beats Music, and Google Play All Access, as well as iTunes.
