Genre: world plus other popular genres
“Sonido Alegre” which in English means, “a joyful sound”, represents the original music composed by Charles Guy after several trips to the Riviera Nayarit in Mexico. The strong rhythmic nylon string guitar style of Charles, plus the gypsy style of violin playing by Linda Powers, creates an exciting array of melodic music with a Spanish flavor, Flamenco flair, as heard in their new CD release, “Sonido Alegre”. Joined by bassist John Galloway, the group performs these original tunes plus other originals from Charles' previous CD, including rich vocal harmonies to his compelling lyrics. The group also draws from Charles' background with popular local bands such as “Heart and Soul” and “In Flight” providing that Funk/Soul feel for dancing, plus other renditions of popular tunes and genres. The group often includes various percussionists from the area for larger venues.
