Remember when it wasn't about one genre? You needed it all; dance, rock and country. Your party was one giant mix tape. You’d agonize over what to include, the order, when to drop that perfectly chosen slow song. MIX TAPE NIGHT presented by CHARLIE FOXTROT WILL bring back those times. Need your fix of DANCE MUSIC, 80’s, 90’s, COUNTRY, 2000 -Today? We're BRINGING IT! Re-experience the first soundtracks of your lives with CHARLIE FOXTROT and the glory days of the mix tape..
Seriously, what's up with the name?
Charlie Foxtrot is military code for a clusterf#ck... It seemed fitting.
What should fans expectations be coming to a show?
Don't over think it. We're just trying to have a great time. And there will be no talk of fans. We're a cover band and at the same party you are, the stage just happens to be a slightly better vantage point.
"Is it true you guys don't take breaks during your shows?"
We prefer not to. When were you ever at a party and thought "we're having a blast but it'd be great if they shut they music off for 20 mins so we could all rest." Just never made much sense to us.
"If we request a song will you play?"
Of course! Unless we hate it, or it has a lot of words (JT has a thing about words), or it's really hard, or we forget.
"We've asked you to perform a couple times and you've been unavailable. Are you just arrogant D Bags?"
Mostly no. We just happen to be 5 guys with jobs, wives &/or girlfriends (sorry ladies!!) and kids. We typically only play out a few times per month and we've been fortunate to have more opportunities then availability. But if we can make it happen we will!
"Did you seriously just put "Sorry ladies" above??"
Come on...there has to be someone?!? Anyone??
"I'm the guy that yells out "Freebird" at shows. That makes me original and funny right?"
It makes you something.
"Do you play Corporate shows?"
Yes, as long as we don't have to wear suits. Suits on stage aren't gonna happen. Never. Ever. Take us as we are. We'll promise to wear clean jeans and t-shirts with sleeves..
"How about weddings?"
Trust us. We are NOT the guys you want to be in charge of your most special day. Seriously?? What are you thinking??
"But the money is great"
Yeah, but we don't really care.
"Are you serious??"
Honestly, if you're looking for a band to wear suits and play Wonderful Tonight that just isn't us. And there's a million bands that will do that better then we would. But if you want us to be us...having fun, doing our show playing songs we all love then we'd love to be part of it.
"What if it's more of a backyard-beer-wedding?"
"BTW what do you care about?"
We care that it's fun. We care that this never becomes a job. We care that you get a fun show and your money worth. We care that we're buddies that all love hanging out and playing music.
JT: "Just give me the first line and hopefully I'll remember the rest." Vocals. Closest we'll get a perfectionist in the band.
Cass: "Regardless of what I order, every 3rd round bring me a diet coke." Guitar: We ALWAYS want to be sure Cass has eaten something.
Chris: "I appreciate you my brother": Bass/Vocals and generally greatest guy ever.
Nick: "Do your job!!!!!!!!!!!!" Drums: Nick is what happens when you place a Craigslist ad.
Jay: "I'd be down for that" Guitar/Keys/Banjo/Rap: been trying unsuccessfully for years to get us to try some of his dance moves.
