“Louisiana-Bass-Driven” funk with hints of the Caribbean, West Africa and Brasil.
His personal experience with West African, Brasilian, Latin and Louisiana Grooves as well as other World music styles drive the adventurous nature of the Charlie Wooton Project. Wooton has benefited greatly from his ever-curious mind, taking something from every musician he met. As a result Wooton's playing is informed by these varied experiences, and fueled by his zest for recreating his music with every performance. The band is joined by a rotating cast of musicians to offer up a fresh take on their live performance. The core trio consist of Doug Belote on Drums and Seizo Shibayama on Guitar.
Charlie just joined the Southern Royal Brotherhood which includes Cyril Neville, Willie Green, Mike Zito and Devon Allman. He has also played with the following
