Chuck Dye - Guitar

Like so many other players, I started playing the guitar after seeing the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show.  I became interested in jazz after discovering my father’s LP collection.  I discovered Bucky Pizzarelli, George Van Eps, and 7-string guitars in 1970.  In 2005 I was finally able to buy one, and have been playing the 7-string ever since, mostly in small groups.  I joined the Syndicate Jazz Band (formerly the GRJO) in 2015, which revived my interest in the Count Basie Band and his great guitarist, Freddie Green.

During the day, I am the Director of Human Resources for Wayne County.
