Chuck Wallace & Friends Blues Band
561 First St.,
Since moving to Pittsburg in 2010, Aubrey "Chuck" Wallace has shared his blues stylings with appreciative audiences in Pittsburg and throughout the Bay Area.
A native of Arkansas, Wallace began his singing career in church as a six-year-old with his sister, Willie Ann Wallace.
He started his professional career joining with Walter Jefferson. The band gained regional recognition in Arkansas as the Walter Jefferson Blue Band featuring Chuck Wallace.
After four years fronting for Jefferson's band, Wallace moved to St. Louis and teamed up with Roosevelt Matthews. They were signed by Ruby Records, and their first single, 'The Bear,' made the Top Ten in R&B charts. The duo had several other hits, notably 'I Need Your Love, Powerful Love.'
In 1980, the duo switched to Twinight Records and immediately released a hit single, 'Hard Times.'
Shortly before moving to Pittsburg, Wallace rejoined Ruby Records and cut the hit single 'The Way I Feel.'
Wallace has appeared with a number of top acts over the years, including Smokey Robinson, Tyrone Davis, Johnny Taylor, Luther Ingram, Shirley Brown, Vernon Garrett and many more.
Wallace has performed at the old Liberty Hotel in Pittsburg and has been featured at PEAHOF Second Sunday Jam Sessions and at the 2015 Seafood Festival. He's also appeared at Biscuits and Blues in San Francisco.
He currently performs with his band, Chuck Wallace and Friends,, and with bands featuring Bobby Webb, Margie Turner and others.
