"Charlie doesn’t just play the kind of rockin’ blues that is the perfect soundtrack to the biker way of life; he takes his listeners into a world that began in America’s post WWII years, screamed through the 50s and 60s and has evolved into one of the most powerful and envied sub-cultures that this country has ever produced.
His legendary music pays homage to the biker lifestyle in a way that no other musician has ever done. Charlie Brechtel weaves the personalities who pioneered this way of life into the hearts of all his songs. Men like Sonny Barger, Wino Willie Forkner, the Bravo Borthers…vintage bikes like the Indian biker Meccas like Sturgis, Daytona Beach, and the Buffalo Chip…all supply the ever-sharp edge to the music of Charlie Brechtel.
Charlie’s roots extend back to his hometown of New Orleans…the tradition of that town…the power…the feel…it’s all there…it’s deep within his blood. He’s played with Greg Allman and John Lee Hooker…his CDs feature some of the best musicians in blues and rock ‘n roll today…he’s played Sturgis and countless other major biker events and venues…his tunes will be heard in upcoming specials on the History Channel and in the DVD that accompanies the book, “The Original Wild Ones.”
The soul of the American biker and the music of Charlie Brechtel are truly one and the same…"
