band members




The Downtown Charlie Brown Blues Band a local band out of Chicagoland is one of the hottest blues bands in the Chicago area. Playing a mixture of R&B, Delta, New Orleans and Chicago style Blues as well as well as Jazz and a taste of Rock and Roll has kept them gigging on a weekly basis for over 20 years. The phenomenal voice of Dee Dee Hardy and rugged bluesy voice of Charlie Brown will keep the house rocking all night long. Their unique sound and style provide a night of fun and entertainment that can not be beat. They have played with headliners like KoKo Taylor, Eddie Clearwater, and many other Chicago greats. You can see them a regular basis at Buddy Guy's Legends in Chicago, The Uptown in Westmont, Johnny’s Blitz in Westmont, Miss Kitty's in Naperville, Gray's Mill Estates in Montgumary IL, Ground Zero in Biloxi and Clarksdale Mississippi, private parties, and many other Chacagoland Night Clubs and festivals. Musical influences are Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Billie Holiday, Howlin’ Wolf, Pine Top Perkins, Sarah Vaughan, Aretha Franklin and others.

When you attend a performance of the Downtown Charlie Brown Blues Band you become a part of the show. Audience participation becomes a must. You will not only dance, tap your feet, and sing along with the band; you may be called on to come on stage or interact with Charlie or Dee Dee as they come out into the audience. It is an experience you do not want to miss. The Band plays many venues including night clubs, bars, restaurants, weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries and festivals.
