Bio: From San Diego, The Bigfellas write and perform “smartass rock". Piano-based, but aggressively eclectic. Best known for their funnyish stuff like “I Wish That I Were Gay”, “4:20” and the world’s only golf rap, “On The Green,” all of which are on their late 2008 schizophrenic CD, Chubbed Up.

Charity event at ArtLab will be a monthly event with food/beer/music... San Diego Youth Services. They help place homeless and abused kids...can't think of a better cause. First set (7:30ish) -Sierra West -Brenden Bourgeois -Charlie Recksieck (of The Bigfellas) Second set (to start around 9:30ish) -Emily Drew -Kenny Eng -Marie Haddad And there's a great gimmick, artists will be also covering 1 song of the other artists in addition to their own. Fun night, really cool venue & idea.
Charlie playing solo (with some guests likely TBA) at our favorite place, "a cross between a church and a Chinese brothel during the Gold Rush". New songs, old songs, good friends and GREAT venue and MSG-laden old-school Chinese food. "Best egg rolls in United States", says satisfied customer Charlie Recksieck. See you!
Charlie playing solo, trading sets then playing together with Michael Tiernan. Michael's new CD is imminent and it's an exciting time. Great stuff & always a really fun jam for the two of them at the end.
