$600 - $2000 per event
Fun, Charming, & Talent-Driven musical TRIO...covering artists such as Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Pink, Heart, Boston, Journey, Bruce Springsteen, and more!! While our public gigs are at bars/clubs, we also have extensive backgrounds playing weddings, corporate functions and mitzvahs. So we can even venture into Motown, disco, and other popular music. Chuggalug also writes and performs our own pop/rock music! We are happy to limit our performance at your event to cover tunes only...songs you already know.

PJ Lent, band leader, leads the female vocals, having sung in variety bands with the area's largest talent agency for many years. She also plays bass, keys, and classical violin/piano. PJ reads, writes and transcribes music. She has a degree in Romance Languages from the University of Maryland College Park.

Charlie Thomas leads the male vocals and plays amazing guitar. He is an in-demand electric/acoustic guitarist, performing in prominent clubs and country clubs all over the US, and even Blues Alley, with several of the areas most reputable rock, variety and jazz bands. Charlie's resume includes several USO tours and performances for our nation's presidents. Charlie reads, writes and transcribes music and has a degree in music composition.

Joe Saia is our drummer who also brings lead vocals to the group. He has performed classical, jazz, latin, funk and rock. Drum and bugle corps and hand percussion are also skills obtained over years of study. Joe helped form and performed with Annapolis based band Laughing Colors and more recently performed with Southern Maryland's Pet The Monster. He is currently working on his first solo album.

We also perform as "Chugg Unplugged," for functions that want less amplified sound. Chugg Unplugged can be a duo with male and female vocals, guitar and keyboard...or a trio with added percussion.

ALL members are well-versed in wedding ceremony music, Jewish traditional music, and most other traditional songs. We are genuinely at home in blue jeans or formal attire. We aim to look good, and sound even better! Thank you for your interest in our band!

These guys were great!!!! PJ is an extremely talented pianist and vocalist!!!! For my mom's 50th Birthday we were looking for something a little light to be played over dinner and kind of transition into something we could dance to and the band did an AMAZING job. I couldn't have asked for a better performance. Their youtube video's don't do them justice. If you get a chance to hear them live take advantage of it. They are super entertaining and Charlie their lead guitarist did a good job with PJ reading the crowd. My favorite part was Kim on the drums when they played "Hotel California." Kim, PJ, and Charlie all did a PHENOMENAL job! Definitely will book again!!!!

Chuggalug was great! Simple as that! I had to plan an office Holiday Party on short notice, and PJ (Vocalist) worked with me to plan things so they went off perfectly. The band was friendly and fun, yet professional, and everyone had an awesome time because of the live music. We started off slow with some holiday instrumentals, but Chuggalug really kicked once the party got going. Our office space isn't the best acoustic venue because it's like a big warehouse, but the band handled it well and it sounded great. I am so happy I found Chuggalug to play for us, and I look forward to calling them the next time we have a big party!
