Li'l Chuck the One Man Skiffle Machine to Play Auckland Show

Li'l Chuck The One Man Skiffle Machine is an authentic one man band performing 'good time music with old time style'. Blessed with the ability to handle multiple instruments at a time, he is the master of coordination: blowin', suckin' and pluckin' simultaneously! He cranks out the harmonica, resonator guitar, kick drum, hi hat, kazoo and vocals to give the audience a rollicking good time. 

Li'l Chuck aka David Thorpe has spent a lifetime rummaging through the drawers of 1930's - 50's music. His mainly original songs are inspired by the sounds of the era - blues, early jazz, western swing, ragtime etc. and are uniquely presented in the style of the street performers from those glory days. 

His 2015 album Blues In Full Swing has been met with high praise in NZ and abroad.

Now Aucklanders have a chance to witness Li'l Chuck telling his stories and singing his songs in the intimate setting of The Wine Cellar on June 18th at 8.30pm with support TBC.

Tickets are $10 and available now from
