After several years touring, Chuck returned to the US and performed in New England for many happy years with one of the region's finest R&B groups, Match.

He also performed live and recorded an album with innovative international performance artist Tomek Lamprecht of Model Citizens.

Today he leads his band Chuck Wansley After Hours, performing tunes from the latest contemporary pop and R&B hits to old school Motown, retro-70's, 80's, 90's, American swing and jazz standards, blues and Latin specialty, performed in the poshest venues from Newport Coast, California to the mansions of Newport, Rhode Island, and from Napa to Paris - along with frequent solo appearances in Japan and the Pacific Rim.
