BIO:

Chucky Waggs is a multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and recording artist based out of the hills of Eureka Springs, AR. Chucky Waggs plays a mix of acoustic and electric guitar, 5string and tenor banjo, dobro, resophonic guitar, harmonica, and kazoo, while using his feet to stomp out the back beat on a thrown together drum kit, during live performances. He has released 4 full length, original studio albums, including most recent release "Be Mindful of Bears", as well as a full length Live Acoustic performance from The Eureka Springs Auditorium, featuring Harmonica virtuoso Kyle Young.

Writing, arranging and performing the instrumentation on each studio album with help from his rotating live band "the Company of Raggs" and drawing influences from early American roots music, as well as early punk and rock and roll, "the Company of Raggs" add to the energy and dynamic of Chucky Waggs' original material during live performances. The result ranges from intimate, often humorous folk ballads with an emphasis on tongue and cheek songwriting; to rowdy stomp alongs with a unique lyrical voice and a diy, rough around the edges approach to the tradition of Folk/Americana music.

He has the rare ability to write a song that tells a story so well, your mind can draw it like a picture.”
