October 3, 2008 - Chuck Hodges

"Like an old friend you never knew you had, Chuck's music greets you with a familiarity that's almost palpable. Startlingly revelatory lyrics and instantly memorable melodies invoke nearly every human emotion as songs about truth, love, heartache and hope unfold like the melodic chapters in a musical book. Unabashed and disarming, and with a voice that's at once wounded yet hopeful, Chuck writes songs that draw you in with their rich imagery, and then keep you with their musicality."  -- from
I couldn't have said it better myself!  "Musicality" has made it into my "word list" for future use.  Visit a couple of old friends on Friday night at The City Wine Sellar and lose yourself in the music of Chuck Hodges.  Music 7-10 pm; Deli fare served till 9 pm.
