An amazing BACK ROOM show!!! Charlie Hunter, it seems, has always loved a good groove — from his early days in the San Francisco Bay area playing with the Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy to his work with his own trio and with T.J. Kirk, the three-guitar band that drew its name and inspiration from Thelonious Monk, James Brown and Rahsaan Roland Kirk. He is both incredibly swift with technique and open to the spontaneity of improvisation. Piecing together songs with his custom-made seven- and eight-string guitars, bass and drums, his songs are calculated and full of genuine expertise.

Charlie Hunter (born May 23, 1967) is an American guitarist, composer and bandleader.

First coming to prominence in the early 1990s, Hunter has recorded 17 albums. Hunter plays custom-made seven and eight-string guitars, on which he simultaneously plays basslines, rhythm guitar, and solos. Critic Sean Westergaard describes Hunter’s guitar technique as “mind-boggling … he’s an agile improviser with an ear for great tone, and always has excellent players alongside him in order to make great music, not to show off.”
