Eleven Fingered Charlie is an inventive genre-crossing rock/reggae project based out of Austin, TX. Since 2001, the band's status has been expanding with each passing year through word-of-mouth grass roots efforts. EFC's devotion to their musical career has opened the door to opportunities such as the Barack Obama political rally as well as many shows with major artists like Slightly Stoopid, Steel Pulse, The English Beat, Pepper, OAR, The Expendables, etc. Dedication and creativity remain paramount as EFC continues to push forward, writing new music, building new friends/fans and sharing their interpretation of what the future of rock/reggae music can sound like.
Sean Claes - INsite Magazine
Their beat is infectious and could cause a person to break out dancing on a moments notice. Equally impressive are the lyrics which can switch from the party chants to cerebral. A lot of times it takes a much bigger band to make such a full sound but EFC does it with a four piece....
Joe Fantozzi - The Pier Magazine
Eleven Fingered Charlie has a good balance between feel-good songs and meaningful music – great songs for dancing, and songs that make me think, as well...almost like morning and twilight.
Tony Arias - The Pirate Studio
EFC's unique take on the reggae genre sees them fusing jazz, rock and dub into a rhythmic and melodic powerhouse that'll groove your soul.
