Chuck (C. J.) Rawlings has performed daily since 2006, with his own segment as a vocalist/guitarist in the Big Elvis Show, an award winning Best of Las Vegas lounge show on the Las Vegas Strip. C. J. was recognized as Best New Impersonator Talent 2006, and as a finalist in the Las Vegas Showcase Singsations 2005, for his tribute to the late great Conway Twitty. He has, however, been performing as a singer & musician during the past 3 decades, winning numerous vocal awards and recognitions throughout his career as a soloist, band member and part of an ensemble cast, with a repertoire spanning the musical genres of Country, Classic Rock, Oldies, R & B, Gospel and Standards.

C. J. began singing at the age of 5, mimicking the pop singers of the 1950's. His ear for music was apparent when he began 6 years of violin lessons at the age of 8, and later guitar lessons. As a teen, C. J. shared lead vocals and played rhythm guitarist for bands of the 1960's. He later won a talent contest and appeared on the popular televised Wild Bill Elliot Show. He continued to sing and play guitar, performing as a solo act until the late 1980's when he and a fellow musician formed "Almost Too Late," a band that played regularly in Washington for over 12 years. Since moving back to Nevada, C. J. has been a solo performer, appearing locally at the Nevada Landing in Jean, the Sportsman's Club in Overton, as well as Boulder Station Casino and the Imperial Palace Casino in Las Vegas. He has continued to perform around the country at fairs, festivals, trade shows and private parties.

C. J. is currently recording his third CD, a compilation of cover tunes and original music, with the Indie Label, Gold Star Las Vegas. His first two CDs have reflected the influences of his youth and those musical legends who became his heroes. As a young man, raised by a singer mother, C. J. listened to Rock n' Roll icons Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and Little Richard; R & B stylists Jackie Wilson, Ray Charles and Brook Benton; and Country favorites Hank Williams, Marty Robbins, Ray Price and Jimmy Dean.

These popular artists influenced C. J.'s musical style, but it was his singer mother who had a lasting impact on his future. She and his aunt, popular singers in the Tacoma, Washington area, were often heard on local radio programs. Inspired by his mother's musical talents, C. J. began to experiment with singing at the age of 5, listening to and imitating the likes of Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Perry Como and Dean Martin. C. J. recalled being mesmerized upon seeing Elvis Presley for the first time on the Ed Sullivan Show, with his swiveling hips, unique voice and stage presence.

The set-up was too much like karaoke - the taped music was a bit too cheap.
