Vocalist Chuck Wansley joins the 18-piece Helios Jazz Orchestra, directed by David Manson, in a special concert of swinging big band music at the Side Door!

In the early 80s he signed first with Prism Records and then Motown, as a founding member of the urban techno band WARP-9, performing live and producing two albums. Chuck then moved to Los Angeles and matured into a dynamic performer, easily conveying a range of musical styles from Frank Sinatra and Harry Connick, to Fatboy Slim and Maroon 5. Chuck has performed from Connecticut to Napa, Los Angeles to Paris & Prague, along with numerous solo appearances in Japan.
