“Jazzy” Chas has been singing and performing since he was a young adult attending Hall-Dale schools while growing up in Hallowell, then earned a bachelor’s degree in jazz and contemporary performance from the University of Maine at Augusta.
He taught himself how to beat box and teaches the skill to students at the Kennebec Conservatory of Music in Augusta and at the Maine Academy of Music in Portland.
In addition to vocals, Chas also plays drums. He performs in a number of bands, including Bass Box, and currently performs at the Empire Dine and Dance in Portland every Tuesday evening. You can also catch him at a number of venues between Portland and Hallowell.
