Charles

Lead Vocal,

Emcee, & Client Care

Myke Charles is Denver bred lyricist, performer, and recording artist who strikes a delicate balance between poetic substance and commercial mass appeal. With an obsessive affinity for hip-hop, he injects a gritty urban sound into any form of music he touches. Beginning as a poet/street rapper in middle school,       

 

Myke has since won the title Denver Idol (2010), reigned champion in the largest hip-hop battle in Colorado (2010), and performed countless times as a solo artist, a member of collegiate A Cappella group In The Buff, and lead vocalist in some of Colorado’s top bands.

 

In 2011, Myke Charles participated in the largest season of NBC’s “The Sing-Off” as the rapper and frontman of professional A Cappella group Urban Method. Having gained national notoriety, CO’s emcee has drawn comparisons to Drake, J. Cole, & Eminem. He has shared the stage with large acts such as Flo Rida, Lupe Fiasco, Kid Ink, The Game, and many more. Myke’s experiences had led him to be a dynamic performer with an unrivaled energetic presence.

 

Outside of music, Myke Charles is a college graduate with a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Colorado. He spends free time travelling, being active with friends and family, and is interested in youth community outreach and education.

APPLAUSE FOR

Rockslide

"These guys killed it. After their very first song, people were coming up to me and my wife telling us how great they were. We couldn't have been happier. The talent level of the musicians is unparalleled. And they're open to modifying everything - from the set list to the order of songs - to fit your needs. People danced their heads off the whole time, it never lost steam. We're so happy we went with Rockslide and you will be too. So, so, so good."

- Ari L.

"Rock Solid is an Understatement"

"I work with many bands and musicians and Rockslide is one of the best bands I have EVER worked with.  They were amazing to deal with the day of and ALWAYS had my client in mind. I would highly recommend them for anyone wanting great talent AND great people."

- Brynn Swanson

Event Planner from First Look Events gives Rockslide a glowing review!

"The band Rockslide was the absolute perfect choice for our daughter's wedding! From the moment they began playing everyone from toddlers to grannies was up and dancing. By the end of the evening, guests were singing to the music at the top of their lungs, and everyone left with a huge smile of contentment on their faces. These musicians are super talented!"

- Cathy H.

"Rockslide rocked it!!!"

"Rockslide performed at our wedding in Keystone, CO and knocked it out of the park! Every keeps talking about how great the band was. Do not settle for an average band, suck it up pay a bit more and hire Rockslide for your next event! They are worth every penny and will be sure to take your event from good to better than great!"

- Matthew W.

"Everyone keeps talking about that awesome band!"

"Rockslide performed for our wedding and covered all of our musical needs for the day - from ceremony (3 pieces w/ violin) to 4-piece cocktail jazz, 4-piece dinner hour of classic rock w/ vocalists, and the full 11 piece band plus sound and lighting engineer for the reception. The band was amazing, had everyone on the dance floor the entire evening and working with Dave on trumpet during the planning process was the best part. Dave was very patient with our multiple requests for meetings to discuss the timeline and the set list and ultimately, everything was perfect. Rockslide was able to cover so many types of genres throughout the night and please the entire crowd from 30-80 years old. Thanks for partying with us Rockslide, definitely recommended"

- Amy D.

"Rockslide rocked our 4th of July wedding!"

"From start to finish this band was amazing to work with!! They are super organized and made planning the music for our wedding a cinch! On the wedding day they completely blew our expectations out of the park! Everything was perfect! The acoustic guitar at the ceremony had me feeling like I was in a fairytale! The music at the reception made the night! It's been 3 weeks since the wedding and our friends are still talking about how awesome the music was. They took our ideas and made the set of our dreams! I have to say that great music is one thing and can make or break a party but not only is this band extremely talented they are so friendly and fun to be around. I would highly recommend Rockslide to anyone looking for a band for their wedding or any event! Thanks so much for making our first memories as a couple so perfect! We are forever thankful!!"

- Katie S.
