Ervin Charles

Ervin Charles.  
Blues Man.  
Natural Leader.  
Band Leader.   
Blues Guitar Legend.  We were so lucky to have him in our midst.  


I know we all have our experiences of him.  Since I host this website, I can take the liberty to tell mine.  From the first time I met Ervin he liked me.  I was always surprised that he did.  He even liked  my playing.  I loved his big hugs.  I always wanted to make him proud.  I always wanted to play with him whenever I could....even if it had to be keyboards.   There was a very genuine feeling we had for each other which we shared on stage to his side yard on 5th & Pecos boiling crawfish and alligator, drinking beer on Saturday afternoon or Sunday afternoon listening to the AM Radio blues station from Port Arthur play killer set after killer set.

My regret is that I didn't get to know him longer or more deeply.  What little time I had with him I will always cherish as special time spent with a very gifted and giving human being, who was also one of the very best blues stylists I have ever met.  I only hope to do his memory proud.

Ervin Charles left this world on April..., 2000.
