Too Sick Charlie and his genuine one man band have gained a reputation of playing uncompromising, no-nonsense  roots music, deeply influenced by the blues of the north Mississippi Hill country. With his 3 string cigar box guitar he picks out hip-shakin’ licks and lays down some solid beats with his drum kit. And throw in some harp for good measure.

”The almost famous one man band.”

Too Sick is Too Sick: Gut bucket guitar, blues, and smooth, high-livin' honey in a whiskey jar for pipes.

You've got a blues act that sends me straight down South. Inspired swamp slide sounds.
