The NEW "Ezra Charles & the Works" Band


EZRA CHARLES is now performing with a new 'Works" band! To his favorite drummer, Jake Helpinstill, he has added Nathan Mays on stand-up bass, Nancy Dalbey (a veteran of EC and the Works since 1989) on trombone and vocals, and Michael Seybold, the original Works' guitarist for the last 26 years. With this lineup of regulars from his original band they are able to perform all of his familiar songs, and are now appearing in venues all over Texas. In addition to regular club shows, they have developed a new dedicated presentation that illustrates Ezra's achievements over the years as a songwriter, creating the material that made Ezra Charles and the Works one of Texas' biggest bands. Fans of his last production, “The Story of Boogie Woogie,” will be delighted by this all-new show with similar entertainment value and musical intensity. A night of storytelling and music, Ezra performs much of his well-known repertoire, and precedes the songs with interesting details of their inspiration in his own unique, amusing style.
