Bursting on the scene out of the bay area in the early 1990s armed with an 8-string guitar and the backing of the legendary musical pranksters Primus, Charlie Hunter has reigned as the west coast ambassador of groove for over a decade. On his self-designed instrument which includes a combination of bass and guitar strings Hunter developed a musical style akim to a walking b-3 organ player, simulateously puming out funky bass lines along with intricate guitar passages. This incredible technique along with his slavishness to the groove won Charlie an enormous following among younger listeners before the term Jam Band was uttered and his inherent hipness attracted jazz, hip hop, soul fans alike.
