Charlie Dandelion is a local supergroup residing in St. Petersburg, Florida featuring members of the Funky Seeds, Ghost Of A Piper Leprauchan, Bobby Lee Rodgers Trio, often accompanied by noted solo artist Reina Collins.
Hailing from Irish ancestry, Charlie Dandelion's past is a bit of an enigma. The only documented evidence of his existence is a brief nationwide tour with Old Gregg in 1992, where he was trained in the ways of The Funk. The tour was brutally cut short during an altercation outside of a brothel in Cincinnati, in which he was shot 104 times. The bullets happened to miss every vital organ and he survived; his new lease on life however prompted him to leave the music business, and he became a nomad, handing out a dandelion to every human being that he encountered in his travels.
In the spring of 2012, the local supergroup band The Weeds were preparing for a show, and in search of inspiration, communally drank a mysterious dandelion tea that they found in a Power Rangers thermos lying on a park bench. The show was a raging success, and literally blew everyone there away; there were no witnesses, the audience was washed out to sea. But The Weeds knew that they stumbled upon their secret weapon, and with the assistance of Charlie have since replicated the perfect formula of Dandelion Funk to blow your minds while keeping you alive.
After that Charlie Dandelion ate all The Weeds, absorbing all their mystical powers in the process, and ascended into the kingdom of demigods. Charlie Dandelion is reported to return to Earth from time to time and take possession of the souls of Musicians and Music-lovers alike, intoxicating their spirits with the beauty and love that exists inside each and every vibration.
